      its a matter of choice, in my case no risk at all with the kind of heavy chuck I use, I would not do it with the original 3 jaw taig chuck.

      Well it is a matter of personal choice at the end of the day - if you choose to risk the potential damage, that is up to you.  However, I would consider it extremely unwise in today's litigious environment to suggest such a practice in a public forum.

      Getting your hands that close to a rotating object with bits that stick out is a really bad idea. Even if it doesn't have bits that  stick out, it is still a really bad idea.

      Silly thing to do - I guy I used to work with used to do that - He is
      minus a thumb and index finger on his left hand after the edge of the
      chuck grabbed the web between thumb and finger.
