    The main drawback to a Peerless lathe is it will not accept standard Starret Collets. This could prove to be a major problem if you need additional collets and chucks in the future.

    I have a Peerless lathe and I use several different brands of WW collets. The Peerless are about .03″ longer but the other dimensions seem the same and they all seem to fit fine. Am I missing something?
