I been wanting to make this for a while now, But you know how it is, You always say I'll get it tomorrow.
Well it's been tomorrow for 6 years now so I decided to get off my lazy butt and do IT !!
To start out this Clausing lathe I bought came with a 4 1/2 morse taper front spindle sleeve to accommodate a 5C collet and a draw bar but nothing else, So I had to make all the other gadgets ETC. ETC.
It's pretty straight forward, But it came out pretty good, After it was all said and done the test piece in the collet had a run out of .0003", that's pretty darn good if you ask me.
Now this information will only do good to people who own a 14" X 48" 6913 Clausing Lathe.
Below are some photos
And as always
Thanks for looking and happy machining

Very interesting this gripper system, never thought of fix a piece like this ... Living and learning!
Congratulated for your work.
Sorry my mistakes in english.

yes the arms spin while the lathe is turning. not an issue though, The spider that has the 3 handles is pinned to the tube with 2 - 5/16" X 2" Roll pins, so it does indeed turn with the lathe .
