Re: In search of Impeller Fan Fastener For Tek 2465 - Part # 243104001

Tom Jobe's were made of brass.

The collet is made from billet (eg solid rod). If you
use aluminum, you are going to have trouble threading the
6-32 section without breaking it. And, some future user
is likely to twist it off, or break the screw slot, when
they guess wrongly that the screw is turned to remove the
fan.

I would use brass or steel.

Hi Chuck,

Found it. Slight discrepancy though - you mentioned these were made of brass and the print says 6061 (aluminum). Which is preferable for these?

Hi Eric,

There is already a blue print for the collets
in the files section of this group. I have a
copy if you can't find it.
