      It was on sale at Travers Tool for about $169! I almost fell out of my chair
      when I saw the price, because I'm used to chucks like this going for $400 or
      so. It was very high quality, and immediately after mounting it, and putting it
      on center at one size, it would hold anything I could find within .001" TIR.
      Unfortunately, it was a one month sale, about a year ago. I have not seen this
      model on sale since. There was also a 6" version of the same chuck on sale
      at that same time. I think the 6" lists about $250, very roughly.
