I need a 1 1/4 X 8 tpi collet chuck for my lathe. I’ve had no problem locating a 1 X 8 tpi collet chuck on various websites, but can’t find a 1 1/4 X 8.
Any help in locating where I can look will be much appreciated. Thanks.

horacedale—Can’t help you with spindle-mounted collet chucks, but I have a set of #2 morse taper collet chucks from ( ).

These require a 3/8”x16tpi draw bar, but are relatively inexpensive and are dead-on accurate.

When I first got my lathe, I bought a spindle-mounted collet chuck set (1”x8tpi) from Penn State … runout was so bad (+-.0025) that it was pretty much unusable.

Craft Supply sells one called the Apprentice. Reviews I have read seem to find their knurled locking nut easier to use then the Beall which requires a spanner? wrench that comes with it.
