Enhancing Your Pocket NC V2-50 Experience with a Customized Collet Holder and Locknut

Pocket NC's V2-50 has made 5-axis CNC milling more accessible than ever before. However, some users may still want to further optimise their experience with custom-designed accessories. In this blog post, we'll explore the creation of a customised collet holder and locknut for the Pocket NC V2-50, designed using SOLIDWORKS and manufactured on a large CNC machine. We'll discuss the benefits of this custom solution and provide a step-by-step visual guide to show how it improves the work-holding process.



Although the Pocket NC V2-50 is a versatile and powerful machine, some users may desire enhanced functionality for specific applications. In response to this need, our machine experts have designed a customized collet holder and locknut to improve the work-holding process, providing increased support and surface contact.


The custom collet holder and locknut were designed using SOLIDWORKS, a popular CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software. The design process focused on ensuring compatibility with the Pocket NC V2-50 and optimizing ease of use for securing the stock.


After finalising the design, the custom collet holder and locknut were manufactured on a large CNC machine. This process ensured high precision and was a perfect fit for the Pocket NC V2-50.


Our short, straightforward video showcases the custom collet holder and locknut in action. The video demonstrates the following steps:

  • Locating the collet holder on the Pocket NC V2-50

  • Inserting the collet into the custom collet holder

  • Placing the custom locknut on top of the collet holder

  • Showcasing the increased work holding support and surface contact provided by the custom solution

  • Demonstrating the ease of accessing and securing the stock

By designing and creating a customised collet holder and locknut for the Pocket NC V2-50, users can enjoy an improved work-holding process with increased support and surface contact. With this custom accessory, you can further optimise your Pocket NC V2-50 experience and take your CNC milling projects to the next level.
