I have a 1953 M-Head with the rare B3 collets. Most were B&S #somethingor other (I don't want to miss-qoute) or a morse taper of some sort. The rarer B-3 collets look just like a downsized version of an R8. Although a bit on the pricer side, they ARE still available.

Eklind made vertical milling heads for installation on horizontal milling machines. There were several different sizes and/or styles. I have one that takes one of the double taper, football shaped collets. I would suspect they used more than one style of collet depending on the head.
