5C Collet Rant

Ronno6:
Why the heck do 3/4" 5C collets have a range of +.000/-.001"
when even tight tolerance 3/4" or .750" 6061 has a +.001" tolerance?????????

GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Psipumper:
I am always breaking the rules then.
They arenít going to work properly though every time .005 undersize but can be bumped in while indicating for a spin fixture or light cut if needed .They definitely donít work well with oversized stock.

Ronno6:
The typical 3/4" 6061 I get measures .752" to .754" O.D.

ER32 collets don't like it much, but I get by.
Now that I am setting up a Hardinge with 5C collets. looks like I have to do some skim cuts.......
McMaster catalogs tight tolerance 6061 that is +.001, but it is out of stock.

I am fearful of screw machine rod stock pricing.
