    Hmmm, I love my Cygnet Aerospace chucks for my U. They are a bit spendy tho, I'll keep an eye out for a single chuck out there for ya.

    This is the exact scroll chuck I would prefer to buy honestly, since i have heard nothing but the best regarding the quality & precision. Price is fair imo for what your getting & compared to one from litton new. Even though I heard the engineer stop producing them due to the low demand & the fact he makes a lot more money with the aerospace products that its not really worth his time from what I was told. I sent him an email anyways, hoping for the best. Would love to buy a used Cygnet Scroll for the U, but the odds aren't in my favor.

    Generally speaking parts for the U lathe seem more scarce, therefore why I decided to ask the forum for any leads or help purchasing one.

    Brandon C. just got back to me & its looking like he has a MMW Scroll & adapter so may have to go that route if nothing else pans out.

    I just heard back from Chris V. and they are currently out of stock he said on all Cygnet scrolls and isn't sure when or if they'll be back in production again.

    Bumr, I hope he will still be available for troubleshooting the chucks he already has out there.

    For what it's worth, I use a set of scroll chucks on my HSA that are identical to the chinese ones Brandon has, and they're super true. Good luck!
