Does anybody have a drawing or good photo of a lever-type collet closer for
an old Atlas lathe? Or do you have one so we can compare notes?
I got the parts for one (gloat: along with 5 collets for a total $50! <GG>).
Might be missing one or maybe two little pieces. Anyways, I haven't figured
out exactly how to put it together. I've been using it like a handwheel-type
closer, but I'd like to be able to take advantage of the open-while-running
If it matters, the closer takes 3AT collets. I suspect the lathe swing isn't
important, but I
think it came from a 10" setup, which is what I have. Could be a 12.
