  • 5C to 3MT collet / sleeve / adapter

    I have a need to mount some 3mt tooling in a machine which takes 5c collets.

    Hardinge makes them but are $$$.

    I could make a blank 5C blank and drill / bore / ream it out to take the 3mt. Reamers are readily available but almost half the price of the Hardinge.

    I have been looking on eBay but haven't seen one yet. Searched for such a device and other than Hardinge have had no luck finding anything similar.

    Anyone know of any other source for such a device? Perhaps I just haven't used the right search term yet.

    I searched this web site as well. Problem is using 5c and 3mt as search terms by themselves or together doesn't work - they are themselves too short (ie 3 characters) and the search engine isn't happy searching for such things.

    Ideas, comments, pointers to the gold at the end of the rainbow !?!

    cheers, Graham in Ottawa Canada

    Graham, have you tried a search string with the boolean operators?
    eg
    3mt+5c+"collets"
    Just got my head together
    now my body's falling apart

      Yes indeed. Still returns 500+ hits and nothing with much interest. That is how I found the reference to the Hardinge part - in about the 432nd of 500 hits.

      thanks,

      cheers, Graham
