Do you own a Grizzly G5960 or G7958 14x40 lathe? If so, you might be interested that Grizzly has the G8143 collet closer for these lathes on sale for $215. Here is a link:


Now, a question, what is the bore diameter and spindle length on these lathes. I may order one if it looks like it can be adapted to fit my old Morgon 12x36.

Several views, but no replies, guess no one owns one of the referenced lathes.

Last night I bit the bullet and ordered the collet closer (along with the B&S threading gage from the Moore & Wright thread). When the parts arrive I'll start a new thread on the collet closer and it adaptation to my lathe. The Morgon is a 1985 vintage Taiwanese belt drive that looks just like every other 12x36 belt drive (Grizzly, Enco, etc.). They must have all copied the same lathe.
