Sherline 3C Collet Headstock with 1/2 inch Diameter Stock Capacity 30113
Sherline 3C Collet Headstock
Includes 1″ spindle wrench (shank and collet not included, shown for reference only)
This collet enables you to hold stock up to 1/2″ diameter that will pass through the headstock.
Our Sherline 3C Collet Headstock is interchangeable with our standard headstock. The centerline height is the same. The mounting system is the same. Therefore you can easily switch from any of our other headstocks to the 3C headstock.
The 3C Spindle is electroless nickel plated to aid in rust prevention, and to increase the surface hardness of the spindle for durability.
The 1″ spindle wrench (P/N 30129) included with the headstock tightens and loosens the collets. The wrench is in a size range that will allow you to exert sufficient force without exerting excessive force. It is also in a size range that will make it easier to handle (than a standard 1″ wrench) when you are tightening and loosening the collet.
If you wish to use a chuck with the Collet 3C headstock, you can purchase P/N 10670, which is our 3C to ¾-16 chuck arbor. All of our 3 and 4 jaw chucks with a ¾-16 thread will fit on this arbor.
