Default keyless chuck

I have a new Craftsman 21914 12" table-top drill press. I would like to get a keyless chuck for it. Can anyone recommend a good keyless chuck that will fit this drill press? I've done a Google search and have seen a lot of references to such a beast but never any actual information that would help me actually find one for purchase.
I would like a good quality one with good TIR but that won't break the bank (I know that those are contradictory requirements but I'd like to get the best mix I can).
Thanks for your help,
Mark

Mark, your best option is to remove the chuck on your drill press and use a thread pitch gauge to verify the size you need. If you really want to change to a keyless chuck I am sure this is something you do not want to pay for twice so buy a Jacob's chuck; Jacob's chuck's are high quality and worth the money.

I will have to check with the documentation on the drill press. I know that the chuck is not threaded, but has some kind of machine taper to keep it in place. I was hoping that someone would already know what kind it needed.
Thanks,
Mark

The "other" excellent (and comparable) make is Röhm (Germany). They make keyless chucks for a lot of high quality power tools as well as industrial machinery

+1 on Röhm. The taper will be a Jarno one (JT), probably JT1 or JT2

Hi Mark

I put one on my Craftsman DP also you don't need a high end for the drill press you can get one in the states, just about anywhere..
Pull out your manual and it will state the size for the chuck you need.

I should note I didn't take the Fac. chuck off I just chuck up the key less one when I want speed or to use the smaller drill bits (1/8" or smaller ) Plus I use the key less chuck in other tools like the lathe and the Router ..
They make many types of arbors for the chucks..the one I like to use most of the time is cut off Allen 3/8-24 cap screw for the arbor....

istracpsboss,

I'd like to follow the link that you posted but it says something about "no news_id given". Is there something wrong with the link?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Bobj3,
I'm a real newbie at all this. As far as I can tell, there isn't any manual for my DP. You seem to know a great deal about this. Is that for sure the correct taper mount for the 21914 DP? I assume that it is. So I buy it and a keyless chuck that fits on the other end and install it, right? I don't know how to remove the old chuck. A tool came with the DP the I believe is for removing the chuck but I don't know how to use it. Are there instructions for this type of thing anywhere on the web?
Please pardon such fundamental questions and thank you for your willingness to help.
Mark

Mark,

It sounds like your DP has a Morse taper for it's chuck. This is not unusual, my Delta does too.

There are several sizes of Morse tapers and you can get the dimensions for Morse Taper Sizes right here.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Craftsman 21914 - 12 in. Drill Press Manuals

Hi Mark

I don't suggest taking off the Fac. chuck, just buy a key less chuck with a 12-20 thread in it and use a Allen cap screw for the arbor bolt and the same for the smaller one as well.you can take off the old chuck off a cordless drill (3/8-24 thread the norm) that works well..

The 1/2" chuck as a down fall it can't go down the zero point like the 3/8" chucks can do easy, so you can chuck up the small drill bits, so no need to take away from the drill press you want to add to it...
