Operate collet closer approx. 25 times to break-in expanding collet for better performance and concentricity.
In expanded position, machine the mandrel .001" or .002" larger than maximum part size.
Expansion of .010" can be obtained but for best results and concentricity, expansion should not exceed .005".
