bought and installed a similar Bison chuck through Enco a week ago or

for the same part, it was a very fair price.
I got the plain back chuck with a pre-threaded Bison backing plate.
Cutting the shoulder on the backing plate was simple enough but drilling
the mounting holes would have been a pain had I not had a rotary table
to space out the 3 holes in the bolt circle.
