I use a 3" and a 4" 3 jaw on my 618 Craftsman. A 5" chuck would be too large, IMO. The useful range of the jaw opening will be limited by the jaws hitting the bed. It also adds a lot more weight to a rather sma;ll spindle. The last time I installed a chuck, I had to make my own back plate. At the time, a 1" -10tpi threaded plate was not available. That was before internet days, however and things have changed. Shars sells a 4" plate for $30.
