3/4" 10tpi Nut soldered on a jacobs chuck
"Desperate" Jacobs chuck on an ELU DB180 HEADSTOCK.
In Australia, I could not get an m18x2.5 nut so I used a 3/4" 10tpi nut as a desperate measure.
To make this drill chuck, you need to first align your lathe. Headstock to tail stock FIRST.
Screw the NUT to the Headstock and Hold the chuck centre with the tail stock with the pin extended for the chuck to grip.
Then just braze or solder the nut to the chuck using SILVER SOLDER.
