Is that it there? Don't know how a m8 nut could fit on the spindle

If it is that one then the spec states it is a 3/4"*16tpi. Record Power offer at least three chucks with this fitting, including this onefrom Snainton.

Are you sure an M8 nut fitted the thread? That would be a very small diameter for a headstock spindle.

Perhaps if you give some approximate dimensions of the thread eg diameter and approx threads per inch we can work it out.

When you say the 3/4" 16tpi didn't fit, was it too big or too small? Or did it start threading on but stop too soon?
