First two pictures are from the 1964 catalog. The third picture is from the 1970 Accessories catalog, which also gave this a new part number!

You are correct Mark, Rodgers does call it the "collet nose". Industry standard is "collet nut" which seems to be more descriptive and less ambiguous, especially for those who understand fasteners like yourself. Both the collet and collet nut could be said to have a 'nose'. While attempting to make things more clear, I'm afraid I've just muddied the waters (LOL).

Not to worry, Slingerfan! In all honesty, I just thought that the "nose" term was a good description even before I checked all the catalog names! Your term of "nut" actually made me look this up!

One reason this might be the case is someone using a different size hex rod over a period of time. Like using a very similar Pearl arm instead of a Rogers arm, the Pearl maybe being a slightly larger (metric) dimension. That might tend to spread out the fingers and they would also tend to stay spread out once driven in that direction. Good point on being careful not to snap off the fingers when trying to correct for that!
