What thread ?

The idea....

I have a Record DML lathe.... I looked at the Proxxon db250 Micro Woodturning Lathe but I didn't like it.


Proxxon do a nice small 3 jaw chuck 27026 which I'd like to use on my Record lathe. That way I should be able to do the minature work as well as the full size stuff. I seem to remember that the Record uses a No 1 Morse taper in the headstock.

Is it possible to do what I'm thinking ?

Anything is possible!!

The only thing that would concern me is whether the 1MT would hold the chuck secure without a drawbar through the spindle, but that then reduces your ability to hold long stock

I certainly won't be using long stock when using the little chuck. Three inches would be long...
