Rivett Lathes

Anyone knowing of someone parting out a Rivett 9-18 second ops lathe?
I need the collet closer assembly. Lathe was pretty complete with lots
of tooling and collets..just missing t he closer.
Seen this ?

Thats a fine example of Rivett.

Isn't the Rivett a Hardinge clone? This may be of interest.

No..the Rivett is a far different breed of machine, and pretty unique. Hardinge (and most others) use a push/pull handle on their collet closers that operates in a horizontal plane
Rivett, at least many of them..use a collet closer that operates on a vertical plane providing a camming action in either direction. They can pull, or push, depending on if you raise or lower the lever. Ive a pretty good selection of dead length collets that require the draw tube to be pushed towards the tailstock.
Its not something easily fabricated, unfortunately.
But thanks anyways
