Default D1-4 x ER 40 ColletChuck Arrived Today

As the title says the D1-4 x ER 40 collet chuck arrived today, I ordered it Christmas Eve, it arrive Amazon (USPS), late this afternoon. I had to adjust the mounting pins (trial and error), but it all worked out in the end. The runout was very acceptable (for me) and was well below the 3 jaw chuck. The fractional collets I ordered, will be here in about a week and the R8 x ER 40 collet chuck has shipped and should be here by 1/5/21.

Gee, thanks for raising the bar again for my home shop.

With you talking about adjusting the pins, reminds me of when I sometimes have to use the four jaw chuck that the other machinest has for his machine. I use it sometimes because it has a bit bigger hole in the center, but I have to turn the pins in two turns to make it fit my lathe.

Those are nice little chucks--I bought one a couple years ago. My lathe has a D1-6 spindle
and I couldn't find one with a direct mount so I had to adapt it to a D1-6 backing plate I had
kicking around. It worked out perfectly and for all intents and purposes there is no more than
a couple tenths runout on a mounted workpiece. I don't use it that often but it's perfect for
holding small, fussy parts. Highly recommended...

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