Evening all, I picked up a Myford ML6 capstan the other day and it only came with one collet. I am trying to find other sizes, but not having any luphoto (1).jpgck. Could anyone point me in the direction of where I can get hold of any or the type of collet. I have attached a photo, the collet is 1.89" overall length, 0.75" diameter at the headstock end, and 0.86" at the workholding/gripping end.

It is stamped hardinge 1029 and is a 1/2" collet.

I cant seem to find any info on the hardinge website either so at a bit of a loose end.

Many thanks

I'm pretty sure that they are different from the c7 type which are something like mj99e off the top of my head.

I have looked at the ml7 collet attachment and a the c7 and they both use a completely different type (hardinge ma99e). All I can seem to find out about them is that they are an old pre c5 style where the spindle nose pulls back on the collet forcing it to close. I just cant seem to find anywhere that sells them.

Pretty much everything Hardinge list is here **LINK**

However, I suspect they are obsolete.
