Colchester 5C Collet Chuck


#1

So yesterday we finally received our 5C collet chuck for the Colchester. I attached the backplate to the chuck yesterday. Today I centered the chuck with some help of @JRay. I have placed this chuck into service as its on the blue cart. I have witness marked on the chuck & the headstock with center punches. When you use it, ensure you align the 2 center punch marks. I have also have put paint on all of the bolts to allow for notification if the bolts have been messed with. The bolts have been torqued with a calibrated torque wrench.
