    That is a beauty! The brass parts are way cool. I am curious. Where do you get these old irons? I have been looking for old iron mortiser (Wysong and Miles 284, Wadkin DM/V, etc.), but has not had any luck.

    They are out there. I usually just have everything shipped to my shop, I am over the driving all over to get stuff, its cheaper and quicker to have it shipped and I can keep working.

    Yes, that's what the brass spacer ring is for. Gives you the clearance needed for the chuck to clear the chisel holder.
