Re: What collets, please

I have 5Rs on one of my lathes. I can't even find a reference to them anywhere let along a 5R collet. I am stuck with what I have which fortunately is a reasonable set.

Starting to get a bad feeling!  I took one to the Model Engineer Exhibition at Alexandra Palace last winter, and one of the traders there said he thought it looked a bit 4-ish.
I'll have acces to the lathe tomorrow and do some measuring.
Incidentally, since my initial post on this topic, I have found the data that Ted attached in the files section, but thanks all the same.

  Here's some info that might help. Hope you're luckier than I, because my 15" uses 4C collets and they are rare. Luckily, I have a full set that came with my lathe.
