    shows the spigot used to mount it in the collet. The spigot is removable



    and has a precision centering pin so that other fixtures can be fitted to it. (A sacrificial mounting plate is shown on the right.)

    Finally, with the spigot removed, the faceplate fits into my vertical collet holder to form an indexing table. The bushing shown fits into the table's central hole to reduce its diameter if working on parts smaller than 1/2" OD.


    Well done, love the clamps
