1. Style A (Pull-Back Design) with a Dead-Length® Workstop

The collet pulls the workpiece against a fixed-axis stop for length control. You can unclamp workpieces to the required length and adapt them to the workpiece geometry by using a matched workpiece stop. The workpiece stop can be removed for bar work.
