Hi there, I am new to routing and I hav aquired an ancient ELU MOF 177 router. My problem is that it is fitted with a quarter inch collet and I would like to use half inch bits. Does anyone know where in the North of England I can get a replacement collet. Will a collet from another make fit?, if so does anyone know the part number.


cheers Phil

The DeWalt 625 model takes the same ones. I have bought a few from Ebay, Miles Tools, and Tool Net. You could always get one from Trend. Collet nuts are extra, but well worth it .

For a few pounds it makes sense. I have an elu177e, brilliant, a DW625E and the use of a Trend R10 at school. Along with a Bosch mof52 and an Elu96E. They all come in useful. 3 router tables. At school a Trend Pro (horrible) and at home a large self build with an Incra fence setup, as well as amother smaller self build with my own box extractor fence. These 2 share the DW625 in a Jessem lift. I have dispensed with about 5 other fences and tables over the years.
