Looks like I will be taking possession of an Aciera F3 milling machine.It uses W20 collets, my question is does anyone know the external dimensions of the collets or does anyone know where I can get a drawing, reason I ask is that I want to make short arbors to mount my tipped face mills on. Also anyone know of a W20 collet supplier or is it just look on ebay.

When I had an F1 I found these people:

though I sold the machine before I got round to buying more collets for it.

Anglo-Swiss have some W20 collets on their website.

Have fun, Aciera machines are awesome. I inherited mine but it was too small for my needs at the time - it financed the purchase of a VMB.

If you put in such terms as 'W20 collet drawing' or 'W20 collet dimensions' into Google, you will find what you seek.

Not yet mentioned above as sources are small-lathes.co.uk and www.rcm-machines.com, the latter being very good as they have an ER32 holder on a W20 shank for 89 Euros. They also have a W20 internal thread to M12 adaptor (good start to a drawbar). Should you need a suitable W20 tap or die, they are available from China on eBay, denoted as SV20 thread. For screwcutting, do not be put off by the strange looking thread pitch - think in fractions rather than decimals and gear the lathe 5/3 of 1mm.
