Loose Chuck

TomCollins
>I have a Delta Midi. My Grizzly chuck is very loose on the spindle shaft until it buts up against the shoulder on the shaft. I think this is why I have so much trouble with things being out of round. Looking on the Delta site a new spindle shaft would be back ordered until July '08 and the machining probably wouldn't be any better.

1.) Would there be a way to improve the threads on the spindle

shaft that I have?

2.) Many of the mini's are very similar in appearance and I'm

wondering if possibly a shaft from say a Jet non-vs may

work.

3.) Would any of you Jet mini non-vs owners be able to give

me the part number for the spindle shaft from the Jet so

I can check specs out with Jet

I recently bought an adapter from PSI so I can mount my chuck in the tail stock. The adapter and my chuck fit together like silk..no slop.

TIA,
Tom
