Brown & Sharpe No. 10 Collets

I have a US Machines rise and fall horizontal mill with Brown & Sharpe No. 10 in the spindle. There is not much travel in the Y axis since this machine was designed as a production mill. I would like to have some collets to run end mills. The only collets I have seen are set screw type that protrude a couple of inches from the face of the spindle.

Did anyone ever make Brown & Sharpe No. 10 spring collets that fit directly in the Brown & Sharpe No. 10 taper?

A secondary question is do collets with a set screw have any advantage over a spring collet?
