Kitless pen making - custom pen tools & supplies » » Beall I-X expanding collet set with 8 collets and hex key


(£149.96 excl. Vat)

Item code: bbs/ixcollet

In stock



The Beall I-X Collet Set has 8 expanding collets that can be used to mount work on a lathe instead of using a jam chuck. It has many applications, but is especially useful for those turning spindle work such as pepper mills or vases, where a secure hold, accuracy and repeatability are all desirable.

Choose an expanding collet of the appropriate size and insert it into the opening of your workpiece or into a recess bored into the reverse. When tightened using the hex screw on its rear, the jaws of the collet will expand to clamp it firmly in place.

Each collet has a ½ inch shaft on its rear, which after tightening the jaws is then held in a drill chuck, or a compression collet, or any other suitable type of chuck of your choice, to hold the workpiece securely on the lathe.

The set comprises 8 different collets - 1½ inch, plus 1¼ inch down to ½ inch, in ⅛ inch increments.

Each collet is made from hard anodised aluminium and the set is supplied with a cherrywood storage block and a hex key for tightening the jaws.

  • When removing the collet, it may be necessary to tap the hex screw lightly after it has been loosened
