    Its cheap because its only 11 out of 19 collets, and looks like they are marked inch fractions, so Id say not :D

    Banggood is great if you are prepared to take pot luck with concentricity. I've had a couple of ER collet chucks from them, one of which was good, the other not so. The one that wasn't I recut the taper in the lathe and it is now usable. The collets will be full of Sharp swarf/chards from the cutting of the grooves. Again a bit hit and miss, but usable. Ignore the reviews, it doesn't readily accept anything less than a 5 star review, I've tried. I still buy from banggood, mainy single point cutting tools for the lathe, VFDs and DRO optical scales. I've found cutwel special offers on ER collects and chucks very good value (BT30 ER32 for £16 plus VAT)

    @doubleboost reviews see to rate Bang Good.

    Can't say I have any experience personally.

    Johns word is good for me.

    Maybe I’ve been lucky, but I’ve bought a full set of ER32 collets, and various collet holders from Banggood, and they have all been fine, and done the job.

    Iv had some stuff off banggood its ok stuff Just remember your paying cheap so you wont be getting top quality kit expect it to be a bit out rough finish etc and you wont be disappointed.
    If you want kit thats bang on pay the premium price

    Not collets but I tried a couple of boxes of indexible tips from them, stupidly cheap and they work just fine.

    Their holders don't look much cop, so didn't bother with them.

    I don’t think the whole site can be judged, it’s all different suppliers isn’t it?
