CM releaser without hammer ( SIEG X2P )
« on: May 10, 2017, 08:32:40 AM »
Hi all !
 I was really tired to hammer the drawbar to release the chuck or the collet holder for my X2P so I decided to try something read on an old model engineers workshop.
The idea is to make an extractor that scews on the spindle and has a bolt that push on the drawbar.
Unfortunally on my X2P there is no "free" thread to screw on so I decided to make a new nut for the mandrel, that has an external thread to screw on the exctractor body.

You can read about this modification here:

I would have liked to post it here but I'm not familiar with the image posting for this forum.

Let me know if you have problems.
