    The radius has nothing to do with flatness. The spec means just what it says, nothing about radii. The best you can do is measure over a 4' length and expect </= 0.008" total deviation.

    Never heard of them, but they look pretty good. My question would be regarding how to REMOVE the collet from the holder. Perhaps someone familiar with these can answer both our concerns.

    Try honing I.D. first, then grind O.D., on freshly ground arbor if you can.
    I have ground O.D.'s with al-oxide wheels. Since you are only removing a tenth or two per side you should have no trouble.

    360 degrees divided by number of teeth yields degrees per tooth. Divide this by two to get degrees per 1/2 tooth. This is the angle to rotate one keyway relative to the other.

    Lathe will be fine. BORE the tube I.D. to the max minor thread diameter (bore to get the I.D. concentric!)
    MSC lists over 200 spiral point taps ... you should not select the cheapest one!
