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.

The other way would be to fix a collar near the top of the drawbar, and make a "cup" nut with a central hole the drawbar pokes through - idea being that when releasing the drawbar the collar hits the cup and can't move up any further, so the far end pushes the MT out of the spindle taper. Not a lot more work and no need to swap the extractor on and off?
