I just received a new Record SC4 chuck, which I’ve assembled and mounted to my Rikon 70-220 VSR Lathe. I started up at a medium speed and immediately noticed the whole lath was vibrating. No wood was mounted in the chuck. I checked the run out at the circumference of the chuck, and it’s got about .005” of run out.
Is it normal for a chuck to cause a lathe to vibrate? The lathe is as smooth as can be with the spur center mounted. The lathe is securely bolted to a very heavy stand.
