Harry,

most of the 'problems' with the musclechucks are people not following the directions. If you just put the chuck on, there may be run-out. Joe shows you how to address it in the video. If you put a 1-1/2 inch surfacing bit in when there is 0.020" run-out, you will know it the second you fire it up Trust me. After adjustment, silent as a lamb.

I’ve been using one in my table on PC motor for longer than I care to remember and no issues.

Grab a budget one from HF when they go on sale. Lots of uses in the shop. You don't need the fancy stands, you can make your own out of scrap hardwood. They show more than what your eyeballs can easily see!

I have made jigs for aligning the Table saw, squaring jointer tables, etc. The CNC needs a little adjustment every so often, it really comes in handy there.

I think every shop should have feeler gages ($5), a dial caliper ($15), a good machinist square ($40, or a cheap one for $10) and dial indicator ($15). I have nice ones for my profession, but 90% of the time I use the HF ones and keep my good stuff safely tucked away. I have compared a lot of the cheap units, and they are surprisingly accurate, especially for a home wood shop.

They make great stocking stuffers, just tell your loved ones what to buy!

You can over tighten them onto the arbor and throw them out of balance too. V O E speaking.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

An excellent video Doug, I hadn't seen it before. This is a shot from a series of tests that I carried out quite some time ago with similar results. I'm still waiting to hear details of complaints.

The bearing itself may be out of round, that is a bad spot to take readings. You would be better off taking out the bearing and just using screw threads. Just saying, as I have thrown a lot of bearings out from wear.
