    I recently sold my two Albrecht 1/2" chucks because I got tired of the hassle of loosening them when they self tightened beyond hand force under heavy load. Out of frustration there was always the temptation to use a pipe wrench.

    And there was the issue if them loosening under reverse rotation if used to hold a tap.

      Anyone that can't figure out how to use a Albrecht chuck should maybe take up knitting.

        An Albrecht chuck is totally variable where the tool is in the Z.

        Obviously your mileage varies from mine. Besides, “most people” don’t run machine tools.

          Thanks for the replies!
          Bought a Shars R8-JT6 collet (23 bucks with shipping) it has .0007 run-out and with the used Albrecht Chuck, holding a gage pin it has a total run-out of .001.2.

            Absolutely . Such should not be allowed to own any precision tooling. :-)

              I know how: don't run it in reverse. My keyless Kawasaki chucks will rum in either direction of course.
