Have any of you guys with a 770 mill and the 4th-Axis setup found a suitable 3 Jaw Chuck and Adapter that will work on your rotary table other than the one that Tormach is selling?
I thought I was ready to give my 4th-Axis its first run until I realized that I had no chuck or a 5C collet holder to hold my part.
I think it was just a brain-fart on my part but, I mistakenly thought that at least one of these items was part of my 4th-Axis-Package.
Since most of my 4th Axis projects will involve smaller diameter parts, I'm trying to decide which would be the best to go with; 3 Jaw Chuck or the 5C collet holder.
$270-something plus shipping for the Chuck, or $185-plus shipping for the 5C collet holder? I can get the collets alot cheaper elsewhere.
The point of all this rambling was that I was hoping one of you guys could point me toward a less expensive 3 Jaw Chuck and adapter plate somewhere else.
I know there will always be folks that can afford to buy the best and wonder why others can't or won't. I don't happen to be one of those lucky people; hence the inquiry.
Thanks in advance.
