Yes, a 5C collet chuck is on my "future" list of improvements for my 12" swing lathe. I have a ER32 collet chuck on my 7" swing mini lathe. I rarely remove it because it is so useful. This collet chuck can be adjusted to less than 0.001" TIR when all the run-out errors including those from the spindle and collets are combined.
I have been studying your photos of the milling attachment and noticed the addition of lathe way wipers to the cross slide.
How did you make these? What type of material did you use for the flxible wipers? Do you have more detailed photos?
Very nice workmanship,
Thank you for posting, Paul Jones
