I'd like to see a collet on a flex shaft that has several stepped
90 degree angles that when opened up can be used to hold small
round bezels or tubing from the inside. I have modified my own
flex shaft chuck to do this but it is not machined perfect and
bezels don't sit as totally true as they could.....
Hi T. Lee, I'm having trouble picturing how this tool works but,
boy, does it sound like something I could use. Any chance you
could describe it in more detail?
Hi Beth, I tried to respond to you offlist but your email bounced
All I did was clamp my flexshaft handpiece level on my bench and
then while spinning it, use a file with a right angle edge to make
little steps on the jaws. I would love to know how to tell you how
to do this perfectly square (any suggestions?) but I was able to get
it close enough by hand and eye, to do the job. You can then set a
round high bearing bezel on this seat on the jaws and open your flex
shaft jaws until the finding is tightly held from the inside. Call
me if you want a more colorful, live description. I’ll bring the
camera to work and shoot you a picture of it.
