    If someone has a cache of these sitting somewhere, I'd be interested in similar after skipd finds his. Although I think my workhead is a b&s #10 not 11

    Hello Skip,

    There's an alternative that may be a better option?
    Get one of the front mount 5C chucks(Bison/Asian)and adapt that to the B&S #11 spindle? If you buy the Adjust-true style, you could indicate it in and maybe hold tighter tolerances than the 5C collet? This chuck could also be adapted for other applications......mounting in an indexer or on a mill table?

    Unless your going to spend big bucks on high precision collets(Hardinge), you may get better results from the chuck versus trying to find the collet adapter and drawbar?

    Just a couple of Ideas........

    Just for future reference, the workhead tolerance is .0002 TIR at the spindle and .0005 6" inches out according to the manual!
