Tormach offers two basic ways to secure a workpiece in a CNC lathe, and one of them is using 5C collets to grip the stock. Other accessories are also used, such as chucks featuring adapters and collet stops.
5C collets come in a variety of sizes in both metric (1 mm) and standard (1/16") intervals, and can be purchased individually or as a set.
