So I just recently sold my round column Rong Fu RF31 and purchased a Clausing 8520 locally. I get it home in a couple of weeks and in the meantime would like to source a set of collets so that I can start using the machine as soon as it arrives. The RF31 used R8 collets and so they all went with the machine since I couldn't use them. Ideally I'd like to pick up a quality set of US-based collets if they're around but will opt for a Chinese set with a quick change holder if anyone has had good luck with any particular set. So I guess my questions are: Is there a source for a good used set of US-made MT2 collets? If not, which Chinese sets have you guys had good luck with on these Clausings? Thanks!
