Anyone doing repetitive operations using WW collets on the Sherline lathe will appreciate the speed and convenience of this collet closer. Once adjusted to approximate closing position with the drawbar, the collet is pulled closed tightly onto the part with just a short movement of the locking lever. Releasing the part is just as easy. Simply push the lever to the right and slide up the remaining raw material for the next part.
