When I said slow, I meant closer to ~600 RPM (good speed for cold folded steel) to start with. Do some testing.


Another thing you could do: Ask whoever is in charge of the lathe (or just your boss) if there is a smaller chuck that will go smaller than 5/8ths somewhere in the back storage room? The shop that I work in typically has more than one size of just about anything you could possibly need.

You never know, wouldn't hurt to ask.
