Complete Deluxe WW Collet Set
The Sherline metric WW collet set contains 77 collets sized from 0.3 mm to 8.0 mm by 0.1 mm increments plus a blank collet that can be made into any size collet by the user. It comes in a finely finished hardwood box with 96 holes, leaving room for other collets should you have extras or inch sizes to store.
These collets have a maximum runout of .002″ or less. If the WW collet adapter is trued in as suggested in the instructions, it will run dead true. This will allow the collet runout to be at its best. Collet sizes above 3/16″ (4.5mm), considered pot chucks, are not bored through. They are only bored .260″ deep and depending on your setup and length of the part, you may experience greater runout further away from the front of the collet.
Sherline manufactures these collets to standard WW specifications; however, we have come across collets that are called WW and will not fit our drawbar and adapter. Be sure to check WW collets made by other manufacturers to be sure they fit our adapter before purchasing them. Sherline manufactures a slightly larger .315″ adapter and drawbar set that will accommodate some of these other brands.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
