    Not to beat a dead horse.. but I used two sizes of the Shars collets today, for about 6 bit changes and 4 hours of run time.

    Absolutely no issues, they are for all intents and purposes the same imperial sizes, and fit the spindle just the same as the "stock" provided ones.

    Again, this is pertaining to the Shars brand I bought off the ebay seller, and with any other brand you are best to check as Brady suggested if they will work or not...

    I will continue to use them, and if I have any issues in the future I will certainly post. They are supposed to be hardened properly, so I would think they are going to hold up the same... but time will tell.

    So Brady, no problems with PDS collets in an HSD 2.2HP spindle, correct? I need to buy one of each in 1/8th and 3/8 and I would rather spend $46 than $80.

    Thanks

    I have been using a couple ebay collets for about 6 months on my 4HP spindle. They work great. I will probably be replacing the 1/4" the soonest. It is the one that gets lots of tool changes. The 1/2" doesn't get many changes and is used less than 25% of the time.

    My 1/8" and 3/8" don't get used at all right now.

    I've also been using the Shars ones I got from the ebay seller, a lot as well. I actually prefer them to the others that came with the spindle, as they hold the bits snugly (so they don't drop out of the collet) when I am tightening up the nut.

    I have been using the 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 and 5/8.
