    I'd like to change the chuck on my drill to keyed for easier use in a drill stand - its currently very difficult to change bits with the drill in place.

    I recently obtained a very old Craftsman Lathe (same one pictured in this thread- https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/need-help-old-craftsman-lathe-206988/) and I need some assistance in finding some parts.

    I wonder why some enterprising lawyer hasn’t filed a class action suit against the various lathe chuck jaw manufacturers on behalf of all the turners that have been injured or suffered damage? I suppose most of the turners simply accept the inferior gripping of the jaws for what it is and when...

    SO, I'm new to tools and whatnot but I swear I can't be this dumb. I bought a 10 inch craftsman drill press that was on clearance for $30 bucks from $150. I began constructing it a few hours ago and was pretty much done 20 minutes in but the chuck will not go on the spindle no matter what I...
