I have never bought anything from Edge Technology I wasn't pleased with.
5C Collet Stop 45-000
The 5C Collet Stop by Edge Technology is a must for multiple piece runs of small lathe parts. It is designed to provide a consistent locating surface to ensure each part is indexed to the same depth. The location of the stop rod is easily adjustable and six differed size stop rods are included to fit any size collet.
- Fits standard 5C collets with internal threads.
- 6 hardened steel stop rods included. (1/16", 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8", 3/4")
- 3/4" stop rod is designed to keep parts square to spindle axis.
- Proprietary locking system prevents the possibility of the stop rod slipping in the body.
- Body made from red anodized 6061-T6 aluminum.
- Body fits a 7/8" wrench.
- Patent Pending
I wish the posts that slide through the stop we’re a slip fit. I am not a fan of the aluminum stop either, but that’s just a personal preference. Should last a while if you’re gentile with it.
The quality of the machining is to a better finish and tighter tolerance than I would have expected.
Honestly probably nicer than it needs to be to accomplish the job, but it is certainly a joy to use.
I work at a machine shop. I was getting tired of searching for the company's stop so I decided to buy my own. This is one of the best tool I have purchased. Work perfectly. I like the different diameter stops that come with it. Comes really handy.
Handy when using collet chuck
This is a well made tool at a great price. Since my purchase I've collected others and there all great! I would highly recommend this product line.
Nice tool. Wish it were made in the USA! I'd pay a few more bucks for it if it were
