Re: Chuck unscrewing from shaft

I haven't read the other posts but what I do is put the chuck on finger tight. Then I take the chuck key and snug it up. It comes off with about the same force on the chuck key. Ever since I started doing that I have not had the chuck come loose or had trouble getting it off. I did have one come loose one time on a really thick 16" bowl. It actually came loose due to the electronic brake on the Powermatic. I used to just sort of snap the chuck closed against the spindle and apparently got away with that for years.
