Description

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.

Instructions
  • Place the large end of the collet into a recess or hole bored into your workpiece and tighten the hex screw in the rear shaft of the collet to expand its jaws into the recess or hole.
  • Once tightened, grip the rear shaft in a drill chuck on your lathe, or a compression collet or any other suitable type of existing chuck.
  • When removing the collet, it may be necessary to tap the hex screw lightly after it has been loosened

Melody Berry
Beaufort Ink set themselves a high standard for product and service, then they hold themselves to that standard. I've always had great service and also very helpful telephone support when I had no idea what I was really needing. There's really is no reason for me to consider buying from anyone else.

High praise for Beaufort Ink for brilliant customer service and a lovely nib - I really should put them on speed dial. I'm fussy with nibs and they've come to the rescue again. They always take time to give brilliant advice and they're just a really nice guys.

Great service and delivery - I am very happy with the new nib I bought. I called them as I was uncertain about which would be the right one, but I got through to the owner who was very helpful and swiftly solved my query.

Perhaps the classiest pen kits in the business and a great source for kitless building as well.

Nick Buckley
Without remembering who specifically took care of my order, I just have to say how pleased I am and simply blown away by the quality of service. I ordered a hand-full of products and must have mistakenly selected one incompatible item. My package arrived with a handwritten note and the piece that I'd meant to purchase. Thank you, I'm truly appreciative.

My order arrived over a week ago with extra pen refills, thank you.
In the main, people are quick to complain even when a minor issue such as mine is out of anybody’s control, so they should be as quick to say thank you.

I have known for a while that the quality of your products is head and shoulders above the competition's, and have now found out first hand that your customer service is of the same premium quality.
A very big thank you and well done to all at Beaufort Ink.
