Last year I purchased a beast of a drill & mill at auction the chuck was a old Jacobs that had seen a pipe wrench a few too many times. I purchased a 3/4” made in china on ebay for around $25 (don’t recall the exact price but that is close). It came with a #2 morse and a R-8 taper. I am very pleased holds well and runs true. It will not grip drills 1/8” or smaller but I expect that is because it is a really big chuck. I have a 3/8 chuck also made in china that I use for small drills.
