Morse tapers are made to be removed and inserted on a regular basis. Many tools have them--drill chucks, live centres, tapping heads, boring heads and morse taper drills themselves. A Jacobs taper, on the other hand, is usually meant to be a permanent installation.

You have a tapping head with the proper taper; just buy a drill chuck and the appropriate arbour to go with it. No need to be swapping the Jacobs tapers.

And just a note about tangs. If you happen to acquire a tool with a threaded morse taper shank (without a tang) you can usually thread a bolt in to get the length you need for the drift key to work...

Measure twice and cut once...or...wait, was that the other way around?

Thanks, that's good info. Can anyone recommend a decent 1/2" keyed chuck? My other drill presses have genuine Jacobs chucks on them and they've been great, although pricey. Are the other ones mostly junk? It's for home use only.
