Your link to the drill chuck from harbor freight is what you want to hold the drill bit. I have 3 of them. Got tried of changing bits all the time.

I have been a member there for a few years now. Alot of guys changed their screen names to their company name. I just didn't change mine. Rather keep the smae name so I don't forget from one forum to the next.
If what I read is what it is, this should work. It is a threaded drill chuck for the headstock with a 1-8 tpi, apparently a new item, I have never seen it on their site. With shipping it should set you back about $50.

With this adapter it will screw on your tailstock threads. http://www.pennstateind.com/store/LABAR418.html
Then when you upgrade to a real lathe, the drill chuck will work on the headstock of the new lathe, you will then need to buy a new drill chuck to fit the tailstock.
