    Default New Member....Need help with my Harding DSMA with Vari Clamp

    Hello,
    I'm seeking some help with a Hardinge DSMA Lathe with a Vari-Clamp unit on it.

    I just purchased this and am having trouble removing the existing collet.
    Does anyone have any tricks to removing the collet?.....simple right?

    No answers yet? It's called a Vari-Grip closer. In a thread on this forum, Larry has a suggestion to release the collet on one of these. I haven't seen one but the "collet tension adjustment" he mentions is probably the ring at the back with the two holes in it. Here'a the thread:
