Subject:
Fitting a new spindle adapter in a Talon Chuck

Craig Daymon
>I'm trying to put a different spindle adapter in my Talon chuck so I can use it on the new lathe (which finally has power and is fully assembled) but I can't get the old one out. I took out the three screws, so that's not the problem. It seems to be just VERY well seated thanks to the taper fit and won't come loose. I don't want to damage the chuck trying to do this, so I thought I'd ask for some advice.

Thanks,

Craig

P.S. I have tried tapping on the insert with a large allen wrench, but that didn't do anything.
