Re: 14 1/2" tailstock taper
I have a vertex keyless chuck but with a r8 taper, I think I have the 1/8 to 5/8 version. It's a great chuck. I suppose it might not be albrecht worthy but it is fine for my needs. I also have a vertex boring head and really like that as well. Vertex tools are pretty good for import stuff from what I have seen.

So now I'm shopping for an economical drill chuck. Does anyone have a suggestion for a MT3 chuck up to 1/2"?
Anyone had experience with this Vertex keyless chuck or can I find a better value elsewhere? It has pretty good reviews.
I'm just using this for some hobby work and don't need to invest a ton of money, but I don't want junk.
