Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I am new to machining. I am just doing hobby machining but have acquired quite a bit of tooling and machines.
I have an Albrecht R8 1/32 - 1/2" chuck and would like to trade someone for an Albrecht 1/32 -1/2" with a MT 3 shank for my lathe. My understanding is the chuck I have has an integrated R8 shank that can't be changed. I will do my best to add pictures to this post.
The chuck is in great shape and I would like one in equally good condition.
Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank You,
Chris

Ox tools did a teardown on one of these a while back. The shank was is not integral. Mine is the same. You might want to investigate a bit more?

 
It appears you are correct. It does have an integral R8 shank. The collar is not spit and there is no gap between the Shank and the chuck.
I am interested in trading it for a MT 3 shank chuck for my lathe. I already have an Albrecht for my Bridgeport.

Thank you,
Chris
