I am putting together my new DP1550 and have a question about attaching the chuck. The manual says after placing the chuck on by hand to open the jaws as wide as they will go, place a piece of wood under the chuck and press the chuck into the wood "until chuck is secure." I have put about as much pressure on it with the feed handles (as specified by manual) as I care to, but I am not sure the chuck is seated as far up as it should be. The top of the chuck is even with the top of the first part of the lower spindle with the smaller diameter part of the spindle in the middle fully exposed. Is this far enough? The manual does not provide a check point.
No announcement yet.
