Yes and also sometimes ( this is not a joke) but the smallest bit of wood dust, crud ,etc will cause serious runout. Please remove with the drill drift (thingyLOL ) and clean the morse taper spindle both on the chuck spindle and inside the quill.I had a new chuck for my lathe, when I fitted it straight out of the box it went up and down like a dogs back leg.I reported it and the company I bought it from,and they were seeking out a replacement and said they would telephone me back in an hour or so.In the meantime I phoned my pal a much more experienced woodturner back then as I was just starting about fifteen years ago.He told me to remove it and make sure it was all super clean I found a little bit of woodchip on the fitting surface which I removed and it worked perfectly so have fun.
