Post drills are much larger than the bench drill your looking at. The original chuck took one size shank. Mine uses 1/2”, it’s a Canady Otto. Some of the bench drills have an auto feed like the post drills, I would look for those. IMO, the Yankees were the best. I also have a Millers Falls bench drill, it has a normal Jacobs style chuck but it’s not as beefy as the Yankees. PM me if you need more info.
