Sherline 1161- WW Collet Adapter and Drawbar (.312 – .313)
The collet adapter goes into the #1 Morse
taper of the headstock. WW collets are then placed in the adapter
and are drawn up tight using the drawbar which passes through the
hole in the spindle. The advantage of WW collets is that they have
a hole through them for holding long stock. Therefore, the WW
collet drawbar is hollow also and threaded inside to grip the
external threads of the WW collets. Material up to 3/16″ in
diameter can pass through the WW collet and drawbar.
A knockout bar is also included to help
remove the adapter from the tapered spindle. This same adapter and
drawbar are included in the P/N 1160 5-piece collet set and the
deluxe sets P/N 1162 (inch) and P/N1179 (metric).
NOTE: Sherline WW collets have a body
diameter of .312 to .313″. Collets made by other manufacturers may
have a larger body diameter of .314 to .315″. We identify those as
8 mm collets and also make an adapter to hold them (P/N 1163). If
you are using non-Sherline collets, measure the body diameter with
a micrometer to determine which adapter to order.
