Hey everyone. I have an old style green Sedgwick morticer, which for those unfamiliar doesn't have a chuck to hold the bits like the newer ones, but rather uses collets. I'm thinking about changing to a chuck and was wondering if anyone has any experience of doing this?

It seems quite a small space above the chisel holder so is there a particular sort or dimension of chuck anyone can suggest? I'm not sure if Sedgwick changed the size of the space when they they changed to the chucks, so as to make it easier to access, or not ... Thanks in advance!
