You need a piece of copper tube with a 5/8" OD and a 1/2" ID to use as an adapter for the adapter.

I think the rep from Grizzly has me convinced to keep what I got and try to make it work. Thanks SAr1 for turning me on to Grizzly. He said I could go to the G5552, one size down.

Ok I'm confused here, a 1/2" is 4/8" which is smaller than 5/8" just 1/8" larger than a 1/2", so you are saying that the adapter end of the chuck is to large for the shaft or is it to small? If it is to large you may want to find some copper tube that will fit the motor shaft and the adapter and use it as a bushing. Find some longer set screws for the adapter check out this site it may help you out http://members.tripod.com/bobgreiner/id50.htm . Good Luck!


Yesiree Sar Sir
I like the looks of that brass insert, I'm gonna try that. Thanks mucho mucho

*I can see that the online stone identification service/site that I was planning is going to be a tougher job than expected..

From here they all appear to be nephrite but dont quote me. How long did the hole take to drill? Is there any translucency to the darker slabs?

HEY TAMA! My Pal!! Thanks for chiming in.
I drilled for maybe 2 minutes? To get that little indentation! That was my virgin experience.WOOOO! Cool, but yeah seemed like a long time, now I know why this is HARD business. The darker slabs have very little transparency, but it DOES have some. Also looks like I got a crack in the more translucent piece. So that figures, they sell a good piece, but with a crack, and the other two...not even sure what they are.

COOL! an identification site! Cool!

Would THIS be any good IF we could get it here in the US?
The guy has several offerings that are expensive? maybe?

Yep, nothing wrong with Siberian jade. Good quality stuff is as stunning as any jade Ive seen. Those blocks have been listed for the last few weeks - trouble is, only NZ stone is popular in NZ..

Im sure a decent US lapidary supply store would have access to this material.

Thanks T, Figured there was a catch,as he has no NZ jade for sale! Not that I would buy chunks that large but it was just Odd to me anyway to see that much raw jade for sale, I just didn't equate the NZ jade thingie!
Thanks Again, Always count on the Master for the correct answers.
