drill chuck

Hi I am new to turning, and am thinking about trying a few pens. But I do not have a drill press so am wanting to drill the blanks on the lathe.

I have this drill chuck with a live center:

it wont work due to the live center, but the live center will detach fron the chuck head, so I was wondering if there was a solid #1MT post that is sold for this chuck..

Thank you _Duane

What type of connection is on the back of the chuck? Some are threaded and some have a taper. The taper on most chucks where it is inserted is different from the 1MT taper which goes into the tailstock. The chuck/taper I use on my lathe is threaded but the chuck in my drill press is 2MT to something J??.
I have bought several items from this bay seller and the items have always been ok.
Not the quality for working on the space shuttle but I turn wood and have never had a problem.
He has a three piece set of tapers and chucks (1/4, 3/8, Ż) for $15.

I have nothing to do with the seller but almost 100,000 sales say a little.

Can you hold the chuck while drilling? Many (myself included) have to hold the chuck when retracting the bit or the taper will pull from the tailstock instead.

I'm not sure why they are different but this company has a 1MT to 1JT taper for $1.25. I know the JT stands for Jacobs Taper but I do not know if that is only because it is shorter to fit into a chuck.
Less than $5 certainly sounds right for a simple taper.
I have purchased from WT Tools for many years and typically buy my HSS blanks from them for making custom turning tools.
