Default Freud FT2200 1/4 collet - help.

Hello everybody.

I recently bought a Freud FT2200 secondhand which came with 2 collets....a 1/2" and what I assumed would be a 1/4" too.
However the smaller looking collet is not a 1/4" and way too big for my 1/4" bits.

So basically I need a 1/4" collet.

BUT for those of you familiar with Freud routers....My half inch collet seems to 'click' in to the collet do I also need a 1/4 collet nut for the 1/4 collet to go in to or will a 1/4" collet go into the collet nut I already have for my 1/2" collet?

Please advise.

Just a guess but the other collet is likely 8mm. The cone in the shaft that it fits into doesn't change so the thickness of the collet walls should be the only difference. I found a link to a 1/4" collet and it doesn't show a nut. If this part looks what is inside your collet nut then it is likely meant to snap in.

Welcome to the forum Chris.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
