    Drill press chuck extension

    Hi

    Chuck in my drill press doesn't hold little drills.
    Its for 4mm-16mm. So far i have used dremel workstation drill press with smaller holes.

    I wanted to use dremel diamond cut off wheel with it.
    Also dremel workstation ain't very accurate to drill metal, so this fix that issue too.

    I had smaller chuck, it was with 3/8" thread, but i had no suitable threaded rod, so i re-threaded it with M12
    Then used M12 threaded rod to connect smaller chuck to the drill.

    Now i can use drills between 0-16mm. Its quick to change and allows me to use my drill with dremel bits too.

    Easy to adjust lenght if needed.

    My sole metal machining project to date has been to attempt a device that fits the spigot of my shopsmith to hold a larger chuck, so that I can use 16mm shank drills, but unfortunately this was a failure, because the hole was not truly centred. Well, no harm done! I would like to fit the chuck somehow.
