Spring-loaded tap guide?

Can anyone recommend a source for a spring-loaded tap guide with a 3/8" diameter shaft, or smaller?    Mine has a 1/2" shank and that's all I seem to be able to find.   I can't figure out a way to hold that in my Sherline mill.  (I have a standard 5400, and I don't plan to do the big block spindle modification to enable larger collets).  Thanks!

How long of a shank does you tap guide have? Sherline has an adapter for holding 3/8" shank mills.  You could probably bore it out to 1/2". It will fit either miller lathe.

That's a great suggestion!   Thanks.

 

And since you suggested it ...  I could just buy a blank end mill holder and bore it out to 1/2".
