    I probably won't smell any remaining residue on the chuck, unless i put my nose next to it, which is not advisable. I will thouroughly clean the jaws though, don't want to transfer to the wood.

    for the jaws I can spray em down with brake parts cleaner. as for the chuck, should I spray it directly and just not soak it, or should i spray the rag then wipe it all down?

    I recently obtained a Laguna 1216 lathe (my first) and i recently read a thread where a bunch of you were saying you have multiple chucks so you don't have to change the jaws. This is something I...
