Looking for some suggestions for a 8in independent 4 Jaw chuck to mount on a 2020 Haas TL-1 with a A2-5 mount and 2.3in thru hole.

The lathe is being used for prototype work in aluminum and steel parts with random materials thrown in. Budget is around $1,500 unless there is a reason to spend more. I would prefer a direct mount versus adapter plate for ease of changing out chuck.

Not sure I found a 4 jaw chuck with an A series spindle mount. I just got an adapter plate and drilled it to match the chuck I bought locally. The chuck was a Bison chuck for what it is worth. And it works fine.
