>I have an old craftsman lathe with 3/4"-16 MT#1 headstock. I'm trying to rig it up to make threaded-lid boxes.
I have a 60 degree cutter with a 1/2" shank.
Is it safe to use my MT1 drill chuck in the headstock to hold the cutter?
If not, is there an adapter I can get that screws on the 3/4"-16 spindle and gives me a MT2 so I can use a 1/2" collet with drawbar?
Or any other suggestions?
