JohnB: exactly right on the grip range.  Go watch youtube video from Joe Pi - he covers collet grip issues, and explains it very well.

 

BTW, for the original poster of this topic: If you have 20 3c collets, you may be close to having a full set.  I rarely see a lathe with more than 15-20.

Number of collets to cover a given range is dependent on the grip range of the collet.

 

5C do not have a very wide range.

 

I think the ER series has a wider grip range per collet than the 5C.

how many sizes are there on the er40?  I like the 5c cause there are 72 sizes.  Do you also have a collet block for the er40?
