I have a lathe to do maintenance and cleaning. But need to purchase the pins or inserts for the shafts to be mounted on the lathe.

What is the metal piece that goes into the chuck called?

the item that the shaft screws onto. Is it called the pin? inserts?

I saw someone selling a bundle on ebay but don't recall the name?

(3/8-11,3/8-10, uniloc and 5/16-14)

I call them Lathe Pins and Lathe Inserts.

I like Chris' because they will also fit in a cordless drill chuck. Comes in handy for a number of operations you may want to do and not tie up your lathe.
