When you order your chuck, you will specify which insert you want it to come with. An insert is a little threaded thingy that is the interface between the lathe headstock and the chuck. The reason that it is a separate part is so that the chuck can be used on any lathe, no matter what diameter and thread size is on the lathe headstock. The specs for your lathe will tell you the headstock size and TPI - threads per inch. Those 2 numbers will tell you which insert you will need.

I'm not sure you posted the correct model number. That number is for a welding cart. I'm guessing you meant the T25926, which is a 10"x18" mini lathe. It's a great lathe for the price. According to the spec sheet, both the headstock & tailstock at #2 morse taper. The headstock spindle is listed as a 1"x8 TPI, which is common for smaller lathers.

I have the older version of this lathe, which had different electronics. Your system is more dependable, and was also much cheaper.

Enjoy your new toy and don't forget to post some photos when yo get it up & running.
