In this episode, Mark tackles a confusing and often misunderstood topic – pull-back/dead-length collet chucks, and lathe part stops. In typical Mark fashion, not only does he give you tips on collets and other workholding, and discuss which part stops are best for your application, but he also explains how the drawtube and hydraulic actuator on your lathe work. Knowing how your machine works will help you make better decisions on your workholding, and there are some great animations in this video to really explain things.
