    Hi James,
    If you’re going to work on clocks then Sherline collets are great. They’re also good for larger pocket watch work. I haven’t used any of their newer ones but the ones I purchased a few years back have a bit too much run out for smaller calibre watch movements.

    William,
    Boat’s ready for you anytime. Lots of wood crying out for those woodworking skills of yours! :)
