Gentlemen,
Milling cutters are high speed steel and no Collet or chuck is going to hold them. Lathes are not mills! If you are insistent is using your lathe to hold mils you need to use a MT end mill holders and add a drawbar as previous thread states correctly.  I  set up an Atlas and all it wa good for was milling 3/16" keyways, which I can do just as well freehand with a die grinder. If you want to surface flat stock use a 4 jaw and a face tool.
THe right tool for the right job!
