So I picked up the Grizzly G0645 Mortise Machine over this weekend and I am running into a small issue that I am hoping someone has a work around for. When I setup the chisel and bit into the chuck and bushing and tighten the set screw to hold the chisel, the set screw forces the chisel out of alignment (I have tried this with 2 different chisels and bit sets). When I manually turn the chuck, I can feel the resistance from the bit on the chisel. I have checked that the drill bits are in the round and not bent. When I perform a very short powered test I hear what I consider a lot of metal on metal screeching.
Now page 25 of the manual, the Troubleshooting section on noise and smoke, says that this is somewhat normal. It is unclear as to what is considered an average amount of noisy though. Am I over thinking the problem or is this a real issue? Thank you for the help!
PS: I would have called Grizzly Tech support but they have been closed since I have picked the machine up due to the holidays.
