A Safe Way to Change Chuck Jaws
I have a Supernova 2 chuck that I use for my mini lathe. The jaws for this chuck are mounted on by screws. When it comes time to change jaws, the screws are very snug, and loosening them can lead to fingers flying into the jaws. I have injured many fingers like this, but I discovered that wearing a work glove while unscrewing the jaws protects your fingers from smashing into the jaws. I have saved my fingers from injury many times with this technique.
