I have a KE850E Black and Decker plunge router. I haven't honestly done a great deal of work with it and only got a few bits with it.
The thing is I want to buy some better bits for it but find most of the bits on the net are 6.35mm or 12mm. This unit I have only has a 8mm collet with it. Does anyone know if there are 6.35mm colletts avalable for the 850E. I have asked by email at Black and Decker but haven't as yet received a reply.

most of the bits on the net are 1/4" and 1/2". Whilst 6.35mm is close to 1/4", 12mm would be undersized for 1/2" collets and the collet won't grip it sufficiently.
Here in Europe,8mm router bits are common. One of our Antipodean members should be able to help you more, based on what is commonly available there. I would have thought any B&D router will certainly have at least 1/4" collets. I tried Googling to find out more about your router but the only result that came up was this post !
