Collet Pad Jaws | Huron

Collet Pads

Huron’s precision Collet Pad Top jaws and Collet Pads offer you an alternative workholding system for barwork. It provides more gripping power, concentricity, and versatility than the standard top jaw system. Huron’s collet pad top jaws and collet pads can change your lathe into a bar machine.

With only one cap screw necessary for each pad, these collet pads can be quickly changed, and you don’t have to remove the collet pad top jaws in order to load the pads.

 

Now add more gripping power to your workholding system!
