I'm happy with mine, decent bang for buck.
A good chuck will cost about as much as the lathe.

You may want to ask this again on rec.crafts.woodturning. However, I prefer the Jet mini over the delta. I teach at a local woodcraft and find the Jets lock down better and the spindle doesn't seem to loosen up. The repeat students I have tend to grab the Jet's before the Delta's also.
Both are good lathes though and will serve you well.
