Workshop Door Knocker Scroll Saw Pattern.

Workshop Hammer Door Knocker for your visitors to let you know they are there. The video below shows the knocker in action.

I need some help:

 I am putting together a sanding station around the Flex Drum Sanding Kit from Seyco and a slow speed Delta grinder. I have installed the Flex drum on the right with the included mandrel.

I want to install my sanding mop on the left. Keep in mind the the threads on left grinder shaft are reverse threads. The shaft is 1/2" diameter. The shaft on my mop is 3/8" diameter. 

What I need is a chuck that will attach to the 1/2" grinder shaft with set screws so I can chuck up the mop. Shopsmith makes one but it fits a 5/8" shaft. It's also expensive. I could use a 5/8" to 1/2" reducer bearing but I would rather find another chuck.

Here is the one from Shopsmith. See the setscrew at the end. That's what I need only for a 1/2" shaft.

Has anyone done this or do you know of another way to do it? If you have done this could you give me specifics of where you purchased the chuck.
