You ll like the G3; it s hard to beat for the money. While you don t need an insert to fix the chuck to the spindle, you do need an adapter to get from the chuck s 1×8tpi thread to a 5/8” Shopsmith spindle. So it s kind of a toss-up on that score. Either way, they work.

But at least I’m not putting a 5/8 to 1×8 adapter, then a 1×8 insert.
If they have a dirrect shopsmith I didn’t see it.

At least it’s all coming from Amazon…if the R-8 to 5/8 shaft to 1” x 8 thread to G3….(whew I’m tired typing that!)....doesn’t work…I’ll send it back and use a faceplate lol.
