Harbor freight had a drill chuck that was the right size and it had decent reviews. So for $12 after 20% off and free LED light my drill press is a drill press again.

I just drilled a tractor pin where my other drill press was having trouble drilling straight holes in 30 mm 1144 Turned ground round. (tractor pins)

This drill press drilled straight hole. I guess I will save it and use it as a drill press. I am at $32 for this little 16 speed drill press.

I used it some more and adjusted the speeds. With some TLC this will be a decent drill press.
I did not use it as I intended but I am happy I got it.
