Default Bosch 1611, 1615, or B1550 collet

I know this has been asked but perhaps the answer is different this time.

Does anyone have a 1/2" collet they are willing to sell for the models above? Does anyone know where to find one?

I found a Jacobs power chuck that fits for now but I don't like that I have to extend the sub base out with spacers in order to have room for cutters to fit somewhat normally.

Thanks much,

Aaron

That's the only link I could find and it's for a 1/4". Maybe ebay or amazon if you keep watching. Galaxy made one but quit, probably due to lack of demand. Do not put a chuck on there that wasn't meant to go on there. The chuck you are talking about may only be balanced for speeds of 2 or 3,000 rpm, not 20,000 plus.

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.

The "Power chuck" is a replacement collet that snaps open and closed. They designed them for specific router models. The one I have was made for the 1615 Bosch router. You "open" and "close" it by snapping a ring up (open) and down (closed). That up and down travel, plus the length of it makes it necessary to put spacers (about 5/8) between the cast base and the sub base (they provide the spacers with the chuck). Just makes it a little ungainly.

I didn't put a drill press chuck on it
