You could also try Tony at for information on the machine ?


Hi Mike,

I spoke to Tony yesterday and unfortunately he does not have a manual for the Mill, however he has been able to find two pages in a catalogue that make reference to the Herbet No10s.

The Herbert taper is similair to the 30INT but you are going to have to machine them yourself or pay a fortune. Once set up it is not a problem just be prepared to make a few whilst you are at it.

You might find somethig in the history of Herbert's: **LINK**


Hi Jo,

Can I use a 30int chuck or do i need to do some alterations to it to make it work?

I think they had their own specific taper so you may be better off making your own ER collet holder to fit the taper rather than making several collets or trying to find suitable tooling.


Thank you for your input Jason, I may just hold out for an ebay find as i don't have the tools or the knowhow to make m y own collec holders

Hi Guys,

I have been recommended to post on this forum to find out which collet i need for the milling machine i recently purchased. I have been advised by Cutwel to give you guys an ask.

Okay so here goes: I have recently purchased a Herbert No10s Vertical Mill. It did not come with any tools. I am trying to purchase a the correct collet. I was wondering if any of you have come across this model and would know which collet type i would need.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated I have searched through the Internet and this forum but i can't seem to find anything.

Thank you in advance.
