Hi i just got a 5/16" router from a friend but i cant seem to find bits that will fit it anywhere.
Its a 5/16" router but I've looked at 3 local home improvement stores and all they carry is 1/2" shank and 1/4" shank. same results when i searched online.
I read that they make reducer bushings to go from 1/2 to 1/4, but also cant find one that goes from 5/16 to 1/4. Anyone know where i can get one?
Whats the deal with this router? Is it made for a specific purpose and why dosnt anyone make bits for it?
Ian, it sounds like it would make a good door stopper to me. 5/16" was never a standard size for any of the name brand routers. 3/8" shank bits were usually special purpose bits and you can get collets for those to fit PC and Bosch.
