Something to share that made mill setup just a little easier and faster. I replaced my R8 arbor drill chuck a 5/8″ drill chuck with a 3/4″ straight shank arbor I found on eBay. Whenever I center the spindle, tram, drill holes, etc I would normally unload whatever Paragon 3/4″ hole saw arbor was in the mill, along with the R8 collet itself and load a regular R8 arbor Drill chuck. Then I’d use the edge-finder in the drill chuck to center the spindle. Then either load a drill bit to make breather holes or whatever or reverse the last toolery setup so I had the needed tooling in the spindle whether it be a hole saw arbor loaded back up in the mill or an endmill holder. Not hugely time consuming but enough that this new setup makes a nice difference and it also works in the horizontal mill. The drill chuck fits up to 5/8″ diameter and slides right into the R8 collet. Now I almost never have to remove the collet from the spindle since all i ever use are 3/4″ Paragon arbors and this chuck. Very exciting.
