Tighten the handle to prevent the quill in the tailstock moving forwards/backwards. Can you wobble the drill chuck now?

YES => the drill chuck is not seated properly or it is defective

NO => everything is fine, loosen the quill lock just enough to allow you to turn the handle that advances the quill. Nearly all quills rattle around a bit when they that handle is fully loosened.
