    Default Chasing Clarkson Autolock collets

    Hi all, Iím after 2 and 3mm collets for an Clarkson Autolock. I use 3mm endmills the most, closely followed by 2mm.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Autolock collets don't work that way, you would need to look for a 6mm collet and then get hold of 2 and 3mm cutters with 6mm shanks.

    Do you have 2 & 3mm cutters with threaded shanks and a center hole to use in these Ellusive collets?

    I donít, as I said, just got the mill with the Clarkson Autolock and I mostly use 2-3mm end mills. I was hoping to find some collets.

    I have since spoken to Ueee and confirmed the smaller sizes are on a larger shank and step down.

    Problem solved.
