  • Harbor Freight 12 x 36

    Harbor Freight's 12 x 36 lathe just went on sale, and I'm thinking of buying one. I don't see a collet attachment listed for it. Does anyone know if one is available for it. Such as the Grizzly collet?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Doesn't that lathe have a D1-4 chuck mount?
    There are some available (Bison I belive), but they are expensive. Oddly enough, Smithy sells an unusual collet chuck for your application for only $115. I have one and it works fine, quite accurate.
    Try this link:

    Edit: Look at the 67-024, $115

      You can buy the one from Smithy or you can build the one described in the Dec/Jan 2003 issue of Machininist's Workshop for half that. It is a good learning project that can be made almost entirely with your new lathe.
