When the collet chuck fails on one of your tools, it makes it unusable. If this happens, the part needs replacement. Luckily, it is not hard to order a new collet for a tool. The collet is a metal or rubber piece that holds a tool or a part using a clamping force. Each collet chuck holder creates static friction that holds the part in place. This is sometimes achieved with tapered gauge blocks, kerf cuts, or a binding medium, such as rubber. The Jacobs collet chuck uses rubber to hold bits in place instead of the gauge blocks. These collets work very well due to the friction caused by the rubber binding material. Collets are common on lathes, drills, and other wood or metalworking tools. Collet holder come in many different sizes, which are different for each type and brand of machine. Find replacement collet chucks on eBay along with convenient shipping options and continue using your tool to get your project done.
