Very Impressed

Comments On Jun 12, 2017:I've been using this Collet Chuck set for at least 6 months now, and I have to say I am Very Impressed. It is a very versatile product and this now takes an almost permanent presence on my midi lathe. Very good product and the price is wonderful compared to other brands and companies. I'm VERY Satisfied!

great for dowels or large mandrel

Comments On Dec 13, 2016:This. Is. AMAZING!! Talk about easy to use! I will never again drill blanks on a drill press again finally a hole with no wobble clean and easy drilling blanks in just seconds. I suggest to anyone making pens also great for starting bowls

Additional Comments On Dec 13, 2016:This has opened my doors to new creations by allowing me to use several mandrels and even turn dowels. Great product built well very sturdy

Superior quality

Comments On Apr 03, 2016:I've worked with all kinds of metal lathes and wood lathes and used collet chucks from several different manufacturers. These measure up as good as any and better than most, especially at this price point. Also since they are made to industry standards additional collets of different and even metric sizes are easily obtained.

Overall, I'm pleased

Comments On Feb 29, 2016:This is a pretty nice chuck set. It's nicely machined and I've used it a fair bit for turning finials with small tenons.
I'd buy it again. I wish they didn't waste all that plastic on the blow-molded case - or give an option since I generally throw that stuff away and have a permanent storage solution for it in my shop.

Very versatile

Comments On Oct 21, 2015:This is a very versatile collet chuck set. I've turned bottle stoppers, spinning tops, finials, and several other small projects. Great to have as part of your lathe accessory inventory.

Apprentice Collet Chuck

Comments On Jun 04, 2015:Very pleased with this chuck. I have used it for several months on a variety of small projects like knobs, finials and Christmas ornaments. Holds well and the knurled locking nut easy to tighten adequately enough without the Tommy bars provided for some projects. A great alternative to a scroll chuck when the jaws will not grip something small. Reasonably priced.

Don't see how I lived without it

Comments On Apr 07, 2015:This is such a great addition to my lathe. I can now safely hold smaller items securely without worrying about catching my turning tool on a chuck jaw. I wanted a safe way to hold delrin rod and turn finishing bushings for pens. This product filled the bill wonderfully. Although there are a couple of things I'd change about the product (knurled nut can skin up knuckles pretty quickly and there aren't enough well-spaced holes for tightening) I still gave it 5 stars because I don't think you can even come close to this quality for the price anywhere else.

with just a couple of extras, it could be 5 stars

Comments On Dec 11, 2014:I bought this collet chuck when I started making kitless pens and needed the accuracy and repeatable positioning that simply isn't possible with a 4-jaw scroll chuck. These are my thoughts after using it for several months.
Positives: (1) it takes ER-32 standard collets, which are readily available in both inch and metric sizes at a reasonable price, (2) it works.
Things that could be better: (1) I'd like a locking set screw so I could run my lathe in reverse with no danger of the chuck coming off the drive spindle; (2) I often find the holes for the tightening bars are on opposite sides -- a couple more holes around the diameter of the front ring would make it much easier to operate.
Overall, 4 stars -- if it had the 2 improvements, I'd give it 5 stars.
