Default Seeking a chuck for small drill bits

I'm looking for a chuck for small, less than 1/8" bits, the end shaft of which can be accepted in the standard chuck on a drill press and small hand drills. I've seen these in years past but have not been able to locate a source for one. Perhaps a firm that supplies tools for jewelers?

Also open to alternative suggestions for drilling very small holes.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Jon

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Each time you extend the reach with an extension or chucking a chuck into another chuck you risk losing some or your concentricity so you may be defeating your purpose. You can get chucks with smaller capacities for 3/8 drills that will replace the chuck on it. I was looking on eBay a couple of years ago for a couple of chucks to replace the broken ones on the drills my son-in-law gave me from his shop and found out you can spend $1000 on a drill chuck if you want to.

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.

change the chuck out to zero to what ever....
but speed and torque will be issues...
for really small bits to power drill look to a mini bench top DP....

Depending on what you're drilling, maybe a "pin vise" might be appropriate...I've used it on soft metal like aluminum, brass, "pig iron" and wood, etc...
