    I have a better one than that, Because of my dust collector I sometimes change the bit with the truck near the keypad side. One time with the truck a little to far to the side and the bit fell into the crevice between side panel and belt assembly. Could not find my magnetic pick up tool so had a hell of a time fishing it out. (can you say hell on this forum? ) LOL.

    Use your t-Allen wrench to tighten.

    The Rock chuck comes in 2 styles, 1/4" or 1/2" and the CarveTight is 1/2". The rock also sits lower in the machine as it is added to the existing Z truck.

    By sitting lower in the z-truck it can cause issues or not work with some of the newer features. The CarveTight is by LHR Technologies, the makers of CarveWright. The Rock Chuck is from a third party vendor.

    I bet they are not. CT is metric and I bet the Rock is not. But you should know if you have one of each. You tell us!

    the thread appears to be an m5 metric......looks the same....will find out tonight after work....
    m5 16mm long
    this should keep my "a" machine running while I figure out my "c" machine problem.....it's carving but ridiculously loud. it's either z truck, flex shaft, or motor. need to diagnose after the holiday projects....
    nope, not the m5. it is a standard fine thread...
