Hello: Is anyone familiar with a manufacturer called RIVITT? I have located a set of 3C collets for sale, but I am not familiar with this manufacturer. Are they similar quality to SB or Hardinge? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Ollie. :confused:

Rivett has been around a long time, with a good reputation for quality.

Yeah, that's probably Rivett. I'm told it's pronounced like Corvette.

I have collets made by Rivett and Hardinge, the Rivett's are the better finished. My Shaublin collets are as nice as the Rivett.
