A JFK collet closure cams with my lathe. Unfortunately the hub and lock ring that mounts to the outboard end of the spindle is missing. The parts are a bit pricey thus I'd like to fabricate them. Does anyone have one they could send a couple of puctures and dimensions from?

Thanks
Rich

I have pieces to a collet closer that may match up with yours, but I need some more pictures of the internals on yours and maybe some basic dimensions that I can use to compare mine to. and if it matches up, I like to get a sketch of the handle and yoke that is missing from mine and in trade, sketches of the parts you need.

Sure. Give me a couple weeks to get them drawn up. I'll post a picture in the next day or so, so you can determine it will work for your lathe.

Ok guys, this one I have is not a JFK brand. I believe it's the Asian brand, King Machinery, I believe.
Here's pictures of it.
