Does any one have experience using an ER32 collet chuck in the lathe headstock? What did you buy?
Unless I’m mistake the Smithy machines have a MT4 headstock. At least my CB-1220XL is supposed to.I bought an ER32 starter kit with the chuck on an R8 arbor and five collets. The chuck fits in an MT5 to R8 sleeve in the spindle.
I buy additional collets when necessary.
I have also made my own ER32 chuck that fits directly on the D1-4 spindle nose.
