Default Collets and collet chucks.

On the matter of collet chucks, mine did not come with a drawbar, but did have an M10 threaded hole for one. So I just use a stock threaded rod, washer and nut.

I wonder, is it horrable that I tap the threaded rod to remove the collet chuck? Is the collet chuck only surface hardened on the outside? It's some cheap rough cut stuff - edges are "China-sharp".

Maybee I should look into making a wedge, to use in between the normal chuckplate (non-removable), and the collet chuck?
