      I have 3 Lyndex collets, purchased new from MSC for a job. The faces were heavily segmented (difficult to photograph), perhaps ground late on a Friday afternoon with a loaded wheel. The OD threads were a bit on the rough side also. The Hardinge, by comparison has a jewel-like appearance and accuracy to match. In my recollection, the Lyndex box said Japan. They also had sloppy radial slotting and heavy entry chamfers. Both collets shown are 3/32 although the Lyndex looks a bit larger due to the chamfer.

        Your experience is unusual. Nheng. We never got chewed up collets, and they were always problem free. But then, We ordered them direct from Lyndex.
