So here’s the final outcome of the keyless chuck problem. I was able to return the other one to Grizzly. The Shars recommendation was a great one. I was (as you said) able to get a nice keyless, arbor and even had them throw in a keyed chuck just in case and it was all cheaper than the one from Grizzly. I installed that one and it works like a dream. Two opposing sleeve (an a couple spanner wrench holes) that works real slick like you would expect a keyless to do. I put an 18” bit extender in to see how straight it spun and there was about 1/4” at the bottom where as before, it was over an inch. Problem solved. Thanks LJs!
