    Default Where can I buy these Maho collets?

    A freind of mine bought a Maho MH600 A and it has these style collets. Can anyone tell me what style collet this is, or maybe a place he could get more of them?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    I think those are 40 taper collets with the buttress thread for the drawbar.

    Does your friend's Maho have a 40 taper spindle? Take measurements, I'm almost certain that it is what they are. They would go directly into a 40 taper spindle.

    As I was telling someone else today in the "Wanted" thread in this section, you can find them on eBay occasionally, for $50 to $80 each.

    A few months ago, I found a source online, in Europe I think, for brand new collets of that sort. I'll try to find it again. Not cheap, as I recall, but not completely crazy prices either.

    You can find these on German Ebay, search for "Spannzange SK40 S20x2". The official type is 574E, but that's only used by a few vendors. Again, search on German Ebay for "574E Spannzange" to see these.

    You can buy new ones inexpensively from RC-Machines for 35 Euros each. However the quality of things I have gotten from RC-Machines recently was poor, so that may not be a good deal.

    Thank you all for the help. I forwarded the info to my friend. If he actually does anything with it is another story....

    The only ones I have seen from Europe, RC machines and some far east providers are metric. I have not seen any new manufacture imperial sizes. I got my imperial sized ones from ebay (had to wait a couple years - they show up occasionally). I only ever use the larger sizes. For holding smaller tooling, I use the U2 collets and an adapter sleeve (what I mean is don't bother holding out for the full set).
