Actually, for bottle stoppers, a better choice might be a collet chuck. They are inexpensive, and with a piece of all-thread, a nut, and a fender washer, won t come out of the headstock or let your workpiece go airborne.

Wow… I have a bottle stopper mandrel and I didn’t even know it :)

Not what Gerry suggests, but just some scrap wood that threads directly onto the spindle with an embedded 3/8” x 16 tpi bolt in it. Made it for some knobs I had to make at one time. I’ve actually made a few different ones with different sized bolts for different projects (rotors, wheels, etc…). Best part is they don’t cost anything!
