    I see there is a happy little band following this thread, about Cascao's chuck key.
    You'll all laugh at this, but I have instances where the key needs use often. Wearing shop apron, or pants and tucked-in shirt, I find slipping the keys shank in the belt awfully convenient.
    Otherwise, my rule of thumb is if the key's in the chuck, one hand is on it. On some lathes, keys are a good 'handle' jogging gear trains when shifting speeds. That's part of the belt & key thing, it is in my right hand.
    Sincerely,

    Key in the right hand? Only us old guys who have had to jog a 20" or larger chuck a few degrees back and forth to be able to get the gears to change Don't remember ever tucking one in my belt but have dropped it in my apron pocket on occasion rip more pockets off that way
