heavy ten lever type collet closer

John Gallo


I have a new to me 10l with a lever type collet closer. Is there any information in the files on how to use or adjust this? I ask because the drawbar does not seem to be long enough. With a collet installed it only seems to lock after only 1 or 2 threads are engaged. Any more than that and it will not fully close. Is there some way to adjust the way tis locks up? I have never used one before, but I trust that the original owner used it often.

Thanks, John.
