... the bed is bent, it is about 40-50cm away from the chuck, so it has no real relevance.
My dad just suggested that the bed might simply be less worn in that spot and that's why it is tight there.
And yes, it was not too pricey, I wouldn't exactly use the word cheap, but for less than 500 Euros it should be perfect as the additional chucks alone are worth more than that.
Next step is really to wire it up, top up the oil (spilled some in the back of the van) and then just have a go. Only used it for approx. 5 minutes at the seller's place and it was awesome. (Plain bearing shells instead of noisy roller bearings etc. )
