T.M. Smith Tool’s Jacobs Taper rigid ER collet chucks are manufactured from premium grade, through-hardened steel. The taper and ER collet pockets are precision ground to provide TIR of 0.0002” or better and are designed to be better than keyed and keyless drill chucks in concentricity and holding power.

These holders can provide quick changes and tight tolerance for drilling. They are compatible with standard Jacobs taper spindles and accept standard ER collets. The chucks are available in an ER16, ER20 and ER32 option.
