Re: Alternative collet chuck set.....

That's true.....if you want to feed a long dowel thru the collet for repeat turning of a component, then the Beall or PSI collet works well. The Beall and PSI collets would also be easier to install and remove from the lathe.....don't have to be using a drawbar.

But, there are advantages to the MT shank type collet chucks as well. They can be used on any lathe with a similar Morris taper without regard to size of spindle thread.....price.....and added numbers of collets sold with this type of collet chuck.
