The chucks you quote are just right. Stay with the 6" 3-jaw. Also, if
there is a choice go with light or medium duty chuck bodies, the heavy duty
models are just too heavy for Atlas lathes. The additional mass they have
will mostly go unused but you will have to pay extra for it and start and
stop it every time you turn the machine on.
