Greetings,

I have a small 10mm lathe, like a Levin or Derbyshire, it is actually a Gilman, seen here in the first post.

I'd like to buy or make a lever collet closer for it. It seems like plans for this would have been published before but I can't find a reference on here or in my old HSM's. Or maybe even a small one I could buy and adapt. The Derbyshire uses one like this, where the lever is tightened around the diam of the spindle:

Any leads would be much appreciated!
