Hey, Kanstantsin; welcome!

Nice looking machine...looks like it'd be a pleasure to hold with those ergonomic grips.

The splash page sounds like the collets are in Imperial rather than Metric(?).

Welcome Kanstantsin.

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.

DaninVan, yes, collets 1/4" and 1/2" make for JCB routers, but i dont find it separately. I was told that my collet is similar with collet from Bosch routers.

JCB won't sell you 'replacement' collets?! *shock*
That makes no sense at all; collets occasionally need to be replaced.
That webpage wasn't particularly helpful as it was aimed at UK/Ireland clients. But there was a link to foreign distribution...
https://tools.jcb.com/pl-pl/do-domu
Is that one of any help?
Re the Bosch collets. They'd have to be interchangeable to be safe to use. I'm guessing that Imperial sized parts aren't all that common in Belarus?

DaninVan, I now just wrote an email to JCB customer support with question about where I can buy collets with Imperial sizes. Let's wait for the answer.
Yes, the parts with Imperial sizes are not common in Belarus, but large choice on ebay or aliexpress, and it is available for me. Sorry for my English)))

Hey, your English is perfectly understandable, Kanstantsin. It's the kids over here that can't put a sentence together that I worry about.
We're always extremely happy to have folks join with different experiences and different points of view.
If we confuse you with abbreviations don't hesitate to call us on it!
TS= table saw...pov= point of view... VOE= 'Voice of experience'... lots more, but some of them are pretty obvious.

Out of curiosity, was that link to a non-UK site of any use?

Welcome to the forum Konstanstin,

Look forward to hear about your woodworking in Belarus, and please post pictures of what you are making!
Let us know if you find the 1/2 inch collet.

Lillian
