    Are you using an indexable turning tool?

    If so, look for a "wiper insert" that fits your holder.

    I would keep the Magic Chuck. Nothing wrong with it. It is what it is. Use it for all the wobbly work you can.

    I'd raise the height of your 120V plugs. Cabinet plus 3" doesn't do any good when stuff piles up on the bench. I'd have them at 50" from the floor to the bottom of the box.
