Anyone know where I can buy a couple of Jacobs Rubberflex collets, sizes J461 (0.360" - 0.63") & J462 (0.63" - 0.9"). They're for a Tapmatic 90X tapping head.

Enco don't list them, and McMaster don't have those sizes.

Preferably an address in the US - prices in the UK seem to be the same number, just a different currency sign...

Thanks,

Ian

What about J&L, I'm sure they do them.

Thanks John,

They don't seem to - they list tapping chucks and collets (which are probably rubberflex) for a couple of hundred dollars, but I couldn't find individual collets.

I'm watching Ebay, there are some, but nothing like the sizes I need.

Anyone else?

They're in the UK paper catalogue for 49 each.

Hi Tim, thanks,

I found them for 32 each (probably + vat & postage) with Coventrytoolholders - I guess I'm so used to buying stuff cheap on Ebay that I felt faint at the thought of handing over more than 80 quid for 16 slivers of steel and some recycled condoms...

I was (still am) hoping to find them in the USA for $32 instead of 32, as usually seems to be the case.

Enco has them in their current sales flyer. There usually in there every month. Here is a link to the two you want.
