So I contacted Grizzly tech support. They said “yep, you are right, it only has one sleeve and cannot be tightened without holding the motor pulley” (a tough feat when you are tying to turn the sleeve and hold the bit as well. I asked if it was really engineered that way “yes” they said. What could be done about it? I asked as a useless chuck is well, useless. “Nothing”. I am currently waiting for a call from somebody with a little more authority to trade this out. Who would’ve thought that it was designed to not be tightened. They actually agreed that that was the case and told me I shouldn’t have chose that one. ITS ENTIRE PURPOSE FOR EXISTING IS TO TIGHTEN (yes I understand that it doesn’t need to be that tight, but try to tighten yours, keyless or not with only the motor resistance. Ain’t happenen.) Sorry, just a little pissed at grizzly right now. Thanks for the help fellas
