Depending on your accuracy requirements you can buy a square or hexagonal er 32 chuck for around $25-$40 that you can mount in your chuck already on the lathe. If you make an Index mark so you mount it the same way, you can match the angle of the er32 and cut a very light cut to true it up to your machine. If your using the 4 jaw independent chuck it would not work as easily since you would still have to Dial it in every time. It works ok on scroll jaw chucks.
