    hello, i have a setup as shown in attached images

    coolant may go inside the tailstock :
    ... from back
    ... from front, through the collet

    well, there is not a big quantity of coolant going inside the tailstock, but should i worry ? kindly !

    there is a hole as shown in attached image : if coolant goes there, than it drains out, or it stays there ?

    Im going to venture a guess that it would drain.

    Can you post a picture of the front of that tail body? I'm interested to see how you have the material gripped.

    But just thinking at ANTARCTICA that is on the bottom so would the coolant need to go up and so the drain hole need be on top?

    McMurdo Station, Antarctica 12*f... don't worry the coolant would freeze solid and you can chip it out when next needed.

    i asked for technical drawing, but dealer has only manuals drawings, which do not help very much

    also, dealer said that maybe there are sensors, so he recomended me to try to seal this setup > i am working on it

    see post 1 for photos - is a collet grip, and tailstock is passive, not pushing

    You posted two pictures, one is from the back, the other is zoomed way in so it's hard to see your setup.

    Can you post a wider shot from the front? Is this just an er40 collet you tighten by hand or.. .? If so, how is it mounted in the tail body?

    The third photo shows a cored hole from the tailstock bore into the base. There has to be an opening in the bottom of the casting for the core print. Unless this hole has been blocked by other components the tailstock cavity should drain.

    1) actual setup, with a few dimensions : static collet grip
    2) dynamic collet grip, thus it can rotate on bearings ( radials + axial )
    3) solution to seal actual setup - still working on it bonus : it comes with a steady rest
