  1. Great project. Brings back many memories of my first plank on bulk head project. My Hjejlen sadly lost due to many house moves and young children.
  2. The issue with the chuck is interesting. I got the collet jammed in the chuck and had to cut the collet to get it of the drill and release the collet off the flexible shaft. Any solutions?
  3. Reminds me of a friend who bought a new huge Marshall amp without telling his wife. The giveaway was when he couldn’t carry it up the stairs on his own....
  4. Well I cut the nut off and after a bit of effort I got the collet off the flexible drive shaft. New nut ordered! Back on Brig Speedy tomorrow. Thank you for your ideas. Really appreciated. I find this forum an absolutely amazing place.
  5. The stub at the top of he photo is the end of the collet. I have had a go at trying to unscrew the collet nut with no luck. The collet nut is loose on the collet but I can’t get the collet off the flexible drive shaft. I think it’s FUBAR as our American friends say. Thanks for your ideas and have a better day!
  6. Thanks guys. The 1,000 word photo below. The collet nut is loose but the collet will not let go of the flexible shaft.
  7. So being a typical accountant I’ve got a collet stuck on a Proxxon drill spindle. Probably explains why I was rugby tackled to the ground by engineers in the office when I went to pick up anything mechanical. Any ideas both on removing it and how not to do it again? Be gentle, remember my profession....
  8. I thinking of buying the Naiad books and I live in the UK. Does anyone know if duty is to be paid?
