To be honest, unlike others on this list, I haven't had my chuck
unthreading on me. I don't have a brake on my spindle or motor and
haven't had any problems with the chuck coming off.
Many chucks have maximum RPM ratings on them. This is especially true
for cast iron body chucks of larger diameters. Cast iron doesn't
handle tensile force well and will fall apart (i.e. explode) due to
high centripetal forces. This isn't a concern with the Taig 4 jaw.
What you should be concerned about is balance. If you are running some
stock on centre, you should be good to go. If you are turning
something substantially off centre, the balance and vibration may be
annoying to deal with.
Just my experience.
