I think you guys have convinced me to go the “Shopsmith” route to mount a chuck. I know there are thousands of Shopsmiths around, but it feels funny counting on that little set screw for the whole shooting match! I know I’m paranoid.

Opinions on chuck brands? It won’t see massive use, looking at Grizzly, Nova, Oneway. Any cheaper off-brands worth it? Oneway looks to be the standard, but pricey. But I guess buy once, cry once.

Anyway, thanks for the great discussion gents. As you all know there is precious little info available for these things. Which I didn’t know when I got it from my dad. It’s got more shop dings than wear, I suspect I’ll be using it for a long time. So far I’ve used the lathe and drill press, but I’m planning a project for the band saw and jointer next week.

If anyone has any other tips on maintenance I’m all ears.
