I looks like the work is at LEAST 4 or 5 spindle diameters out from the nose
bearing. And it sticks beyond that distance. This is starting at the

Since the nose is 1", and the spindle is s little smaller, if that distance
overall is 4", as it seems, you are a bit over 4 spindle diameters from the
At that distance, with a lightweight machine, some chatter might be
I would advise a smaller and for sure THINNER chuck, or one with smaller
jaws, at least, so the work can be closer to the nose bearing.

Even some of the steel ones list for a hundred or more new, but I have gotten
