I cannot however figure out if it uses the dovetail edge mount or if it is just a stepped edge.
It seems to me that in either case it would be necessary to correctly cut the mounting end.

No experience but I did read some discouraging words about Penn State’s customer service on this site recently.

I have bought a few things from them and not had any problems. The chuck looks fair and seems cheap enough. I have never used that style so I can’t say anything useful about it specifically. Personally, I just bought a 1”x8 tpi tap so I can thread workpieces on the spindle directly.
