Jet Mini - Morse Taper - What size?

Joe in a Cleveland suburb
>Hello.

I would like to get a drill bit chuck thingy for my Jet Mini. Do I need a #1 or #2 morse taper?

I made a collet thing then tried to drill a hole in the center. Thought I could use my drill. It didn't work. So I made another one and tried to use my drill press. The hole ended up off center. So I turned a 3rd one and would like to try and get the hole centered this time(!).

Boy. You know? This sure is a lot of work just to make a Shaker peg and knob... :)

BTW. Dumb question. But why is it called a morse taper? That is, if I'm calling it the right thing...

Thank you,
Joe
