Mystery collet identification

I bought a box of collets to get five that I needed. There were some DA collets in there and four that I could not identify. There are two of one and one each of the other two. I've attached a picture with dimensions. ColletsDimensions.jpg On all of these collets, the drawbar threads into the back o...

Re: Atlas th48

You have pretty much everything that Sears sold with that lathe. I have most of that stuff too.

Too much to tell you what everything is, but if you look in a catalog, you can match things up with the pictures:

Re: Mill tooling

Generally speaking, it is desirable to have collets that allow stock to pass through them for use with a lathe. That's not to say that some folks don't do so. I have Morse taper 3 collets for my Atlas lathe. It's the only collet that will go directly in the spindle without a collet chuck that will ...

Re: Mill tooling

For a milling vise I have a preference for the CNC style vises. Like this one for example, there are other brands with similar styles too - https://www.glacern.com/photos/GPV-615.jpg Nice thing with those is that you can mount them on their side, which you can't do with the D series Kurt vise.

Re: Mill tooling

You should post a picture or link for your mill so we know what we are dealing with. A good milling vise will be the best investment you make. If you can't hold parts and hold them well and straight, nothing else will matter. Pete recommended a grinding vise, which may be your best option if you hav...

5C collets for sale / trade

I picked up some mostly Hardinge 5C collets to fill out my good set. I have some spares and I need others. Hardinge collets are $5 if the face is not marked or modified, $4 if it is. All others are $3. Discount if you buy a bunch. Shipping is by flat rate, so all I can fit in a small box would be $7...

Re: OP even for the Junk Drawer - Corona virus

I'm taking a class on coronovirus, including things like epidemiology, modeling, forecasting, vaccine development, etc... One of the studies presented took data from travelers who left China and calculated backwards from that. What they found was that the Chinese are under-reporting stuff by a facto...

Re: Clausing 5914 speed control not holding

I believe that my dad got the seals from Clausing.

Not the cheapest place to get them, but they would be the correct ones.

Once you rebuild it, if you are not using it for industrial use, it will probably last the rest of your life.

Re: Covid 19 information

Along the C-19 line, I saw a memo from Harbor Freight that they are donating their total inventory of face shields, N95 masks and gloves to hospital emergency rooms. Yes, their 5 mil and 7 mil gloves, plus all N95 mask and face shields. The public would still be able to get 3 mil and 9 mil gloves. ...
