Nice chuck! 02/08/2020 2:35:37 PM

Replaced drill chuck on older Craftsman drill press that was running out over .015". The new chuck is running will under .001" I could not be happier.

Better Than Expected 01/07/2020 2:09:59 PM

I bought a cheap Wen bench-top drill press a few years ago and was never happy with the runout of the chuck. Although the arbor was measuring .0004", my tool was measuring .0055" (visible). This makes it very difficult for drilling small holes in metals. All my measurements are taken 2" from the jaws using a hardened, polished tooling pin. I ordered a chuck from Amazon (keyless) and was completely unusable with a runout of .022"....POS!!! So, in quest of the Holy Chuck, I ordered this one not expecting too much but hoping for better than .0055". To my surprise, and perhaps a bit of luck, I'm getting .0002" at the tool!!! How can this be when the arbor is at .0004? I guess the combination and fitment took out .0002" at the tool. I tried drilling some .25" mild steel with a .125" bit and had ZERO walk. I was only hoping for a couple thou improvement and now below a half!! My $150.00 cheapo drill press now has better runout than most of the expensive presses. I couldn't be happier and will recommend this chuck to anyone in need. Thanks Grizzly/South Bend!

Well Made 11/07/2019 12:01:32 PM

Fit my Craftsman drill press perfectly. It does have a small amount runout after cleaning both drill press and drill chuck. For what I need this is not a big issue. In my opinion, for the price I would buy it again.

I replaced the chuck on my Rockwell drill press with this item and it works just great. Very good quality and very reasonable too.

Can't store the chuck key in the chuck 04/01/2019 1:37:55 PM

Got this to replace the chuck that came with my lathe and or mill. It runs true, 1/2 to 1 thousands out, I'm sue that the G1435 arbor I got with it helps in its accuracy. I guess I lucked out and got a good arbor and chuck combo. I have a Jacobs chuck as well that's my be older than I am I found it with my Father-in-laws old Sears lathe, lucked out again when my new lathe also had a M2 tail stock. I like the fit and finish of the South Bend better than the Jacobs. The only issue that I have or should I call it a feature because it doesn't have anything to do with the operation of the chuck, is that I like to store the chuck key in the chuck. Most have round handles but not this one it has flats on two sides. The remedy is to use a the key I already have and store the new one in the top of the tool box for a backup. I won't take from the ratting just because of the chuck key, that's a personal preference and not a flaw.

A much better quality chuck than the Jacob's I had previously 02/27/2019 4:00:21 PM

Simply a great product. I highly recommend this if you have a delta press.

Well machined 02/08/2019 5:09:51 PM

As described in the catalog, this drill chuck by South Bend is well machined and operates smoothly, Just what I wanted to replace the cheap chuck on my drill press. The included chuck key is similarly robust.

Very nice Chuck 12/20/2018 12:53:51 PM

I needed a chuck for tiny bits. This chuck holds a bit so small that I almost need a magnifying glass to see the hole. It appears very well made. I like the long handle on the provided chuck key and that the key doesn't have one of those springs you have to press in to use it.

Big, robust chuck 10/18/2018 6:54:17 PM

This is a big, robust chuck. I bought it to replace the factory-supplied chuck on my drill press, and it's a big improvement.

Super Excellent 08/26/2018 2:14:33 AM

The long wait to get the SB1370 was the only bad thing. It installed in less then 5 minutes with no problems what so ever. and I like the way the key fits in the chucks t gets the bits nice and tight without any slipping. After the installation I measured the runout with the dial indicator in different locations and had excellent reading all under .0003 of an inch.

Great Product!! 03/04/2018 3:36:19 PM

My Ryobi bench drill press came with a chuck that I assumed would be adequate for what I do in my shop and it has been. I thought. This new chuck is butter! The difference between adequate and accurate is night and day!! For the money I am totally impressed with this chuck. It is milling quality

Excellent South Bend chuck for the price 12/28/2017 3:37:43 AM

I replaced a cheap Harbor Freight drill press metric chuck with this good quality English chuck.
It works much more precisely than the old one and handles smaller drill bits down to 1/16".

I bought this as a replacement for a chuck on a 50$ Chinese tabletop drill press. It greatly increased the accuracy of the machine. Plus, now I have a chuck key that actually fits well. I definitely recommend this tool

This is a quality, heavy duty drill chuck and key. Worked perfectly on my Grizzly drill press. I've never had a bad experience with Grizzly!
