are marked Hardinge MA99E. Turns out I've got an *almost* complete set, but
I'm missing one for 5/16". I called Hardinge first and they said they could
run off a "special" for me for a mere $300.-!! So next I checked out ebay
but came up dry. Went to the Myford page but it's still a mess since their
server puked last year. Tried to stay awake last night to call 'em but heavy
eyelids got the best of me. Soooo does anyone have a spare 5/16" collet they
might want to part with?
--Current Plan B (or is that D?) is to make a sleeve for a larger
size, so I can use, say, a 3/8" collet to hold some 5/16" rod. It's a hack,
but not the preferred way to make it happen..
