    Any one any idea on what type of collet holder is required for this type of collet?
    The shaft as it were is 5/8"

    Looks like 3c from the picture, would need some dimensions to confirm.

    Drawbar along/down the spindle pulling the collet into the matching spindle bore/chuck.

    Could go into something like this too. Nut on the rear to draw it in.

    So are they more for a lathe than a mill?

    Depends on the mills spindle. Similar dimensions to r8 and there happily used in a mill.
    Links I posted up there have dimensions. Worth noting the dimensions down and having a look to see if any stack up.
    Should be able to work out what machines there off.

    If there 2804 il re home them. :)

    3c seems likely but there are a lot of collets about that size and shape. The Crawford number is hard to make out in your pic.

    Look similar to a load of 3am I had. You need a holder and a drawbar if you use them on a lathe.

    Colchester offered both these types and the Burnerd multisize ones, I chose to get the latter as I find it much simpler to use.

    Could be the collet from a tool and cutter grinder, a lathe or a mill.

    3c if it's about 5/8ths. Actually measurement is 0.648" from memory, so a bastard size.
