I have sleds for all my chucks for now until the day I can no longer lift them onto the lathe bed

I like that best. No good place for me to hook up a lift. Now just to remember to make one.

You could certainly do that if you wanted to but the reality is that once the chuck is lifted up and ready to mount you can loosen its grip on the tool ever so slightly and it will turn enough for alignment purposes...

For a camlock chuck I know that would work. I was thinking for the old old stuff like my 15" South Bend with the threaded spindle.

Works for threaded spindles too. Once you've got the thread well started you can open the jaws and get rid of the hook...
