    Default Tapered collet help

    CG500-37, Tapered Collet

    The snap on stud puller is tits. I am sure it is a common collet. Anyone know the number? Meaning R8, R5, etc?
    Thanks

    R8 is a standard industrial collet used in many millinng machines, etc. R5 is shorter I think.
    The numbers are not in the snap on book.

    The Snap-On text says the collets are threaded to grab the studs. The standard industrial collets would not be threaded inside the end that grabs the tool. Would that matter for your purpose?

    Do you have the dimensions of the Snap-On collet? I can compare to collets we have in our machine shop here.

    I think so. You'd still need the same business on the other end of the collet to tighten it, and I'm not finding any internal threaded collets on the open market.
