View Full Version : Anybody using one of these? Need Opinions

I am wanting to purchase these two items for my Hardinge. Anybody already own either of these and your comments?
I am looking at the 5C collet on the toolpost for holding all different diameter boring bars. I was trying to figure out how to use my ER32 or ER16 setup but by the time I figure in the diameter of the collet nut I could install the 5C collets, of which I have many, many different sizes, shapes, etc.
I need the rotating tailstock chuck for holding long thin rods for less deflection during machining than using a center.
Opinions are appreciated.

No, but I think someone could make it cheaper.Where is that guy on here that always boasts about how he can CNC things cheaper. I would take one for $50, any others?
