Hello everyone. I am an experimental engineer engaged in my own workshop in creating apparatus for testing various mechanical engineering prototypes. I have been a Bridgeport man all my life so I have one of these - actually a clone from Taiwan with Mitutoyo positional display on a non-interruptional power supply (couldn't do without it). I also have a Smart & Brown model "A" lathe which I really appreciate and have just bought an Alexander 3D manual diesinker for which I want to source some collets. I am adding a three axis router with 25,000 rpm spindle from a University.

Hi Chris welcome to the forum. It looks that you have a varied engineering skill set and your help will be appreciated but if you need any help just ask on here. It sounds like you have a workshop to be envied.

Hello and welcome Chris. That sounds like a nice setup!
I have an Alexander diesinker but alas, no spare collets..

Chris - Recently made some for a friend on cnc lathe from silver steel. Cut a single compression slit and the runout was less than a thou old money. Well worth a try.
