>I picked up a drill chuck with an m2 taper at Harbor freight,
I works well in the tail stock but i would like to use it in the head stock in place of a collet chuck.(I'm cheap)
There is a recess in the small end of the M 2 taper.
Do chucks normally come tapped for a draw bar?
I have a small compression chuck from Lee valley that came pre tapped,1/4 20.
I was wondering if my HF drill chuck is untapped just because it's cheap.
If I were to attempt to drill and tap the drill chuck, what would be the best way to go about it to make sure it's centered,etc
