    Yard sale find of the year

    Well, I finally got the DRO installed :whoohoo: 🤸 and got the chuck disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. Thank you Tom in this video: It was really cruddy inside, and has some outside damage that will not effect its function. As you can see it did have a threaded insert. All I need now...

    Yard sale find of the year

    This chuck project will have to be put on hold. I was in the middle of putting a DRO on my Lagun mill and just thought I would get an arbor ordered for this chuck so I wouldn't have to remove the one on my other mill. So back to the DRO I go.

    Turns out someone may have put a threaded insert in this chuck. I'll have to disassemble and see.
