Chucks are usually screwed in counter-clockwise. And there may be a button to push in. Chucks by nature are very difficult to remove, I myself would search Google for a F-450 Porche Metal Lathe User Manual because if you are twisting in the wrong direction, you are actually tightening it, and it takes enough effort to remove it without tightening it further. Fastening a "T" bar within the chuck and giving the bar a tap tap helps break the initial inertia strength required.
A user manual would be the best bet or call Porche customer service and ask for their parts & repair department phone number for either the manual or verbal assistance.

Looking for a live centre and drive end spur for a Mastercraft 554508-0 cast iron wood lathe


Such accessories tend to be universal rather than dedicated to any particular make or model of lathe.
Such accessories are available from many outlets and catalogues containing items for the wood-turning enthusiast.

The tailstock of most lathes would be produced with a Morse taper numbers 1, 2 or 3 and with a variety of adaptors a number of live or dead centres, drill chucks or morse taper drill bits can be used.

Similarly the headshock spindle should be found to have a standard thread capable of accepting a number of chucks, faceplates, drive spurs and so forth.

The headstock spindle thread and the tailstock taper should be listed in the machine specifications and then armed with that information you can shop around a multitude of suppliers to find the best deal.

I'm looking for a owners manual for a ML618 wood lathe. I'm looking to see if it has more than one Chuck?


Most wood lathes, like most metalworking lathes, have a spindle that is threaded to accept a variety of fairly standard accessories including chucks and faceplates of various sizes and types to accommodate different types of work.
Any lathe that does not accept a variety of such accessories would be a complete waste of time.

Obtaining a manual for much imported machinery is almost impossible to obtain but most imported machines are close copies of industry standard machines and so generic information such as can be obtained from almost any supplier or experienced user is all that is required.

Crashed lathe is out of center


I don't know the extent of your crash, but if the head, or chuck is not running true you will need to 1 remove the chuck from lathe, verify nothing is broken. clean up completely. and reinstall on machine. than insert something in chuck and measure center. some chucks are adjustable, noted by 3 or 4 bolts into face of chuck holding it to the mounting portion to machine head, and 3 or 4 setscrews in the periphery of the chuck to control its position. let me know if this helps, send pictures if not.

How do I change the chuck on my milwaukee right angle 1/2" drill? It has snapped off behind the chuck


Take digital photos when taking the front metal gear box off the drill. Next carefully remove the two plastic halves of the drill if needed to gain access to the shaft that holds the chuck.
Replace the broken threaded metal part that the chuck screws onto.
Normally chuck replacement involves unscrewing the small screw deep inside the chuck on a metal shaft has a left hand thread. Next use a large allen wrench tightened in the chuck with a mallet to loosen the bad chuck. Reverse to install new chuck.
