It should be absolutely fine. Just make sure it is secure if you run in reverse

If you get one you can make your own wooden fixturng to suit whatever your doing....I do.
The RP one is £20.....very well made

Extending the spindle with an adapter and putting the chuck further away will contribute to more vibration but if you are working with relatively short turnings it shouldn't be a problem.

Thank you for the replies, much appreciated.
I've ordered the RP adaptor I linked to. No doubt, I'll be buying another chuck in the future (probably a SC4 as all my jaws are from RP) with a m33 thread to avoid the situations Paul mentioned.

The SC4 package is on offer atm. Recommended and has lasted very well. Mine is almost 4 years old.
