Default Source for router collets

Needed a 3/8" collet for my DW621 to run some end mills. Of course, the DeWalt catalogue 'sez' the 3/8" collet is obsolete/no longer available.

An on-line search and found Elaire Corp. stocks imperial and metric size collets for DeWalt, Bosch Porter Cable, Mikita routers and small reducing adapter collets at reasonable prices: Elaire Corporation -Router Collets

so far I've heard noting negative about them...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

According to this ad on ebay: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Big-Horn-1-2...19.m1438.l2649 the collet for that router is the same as my Hitachi M12V2 and the M12VC as well as your 621 and a number of other DW routers. If that can be verified then you might be interested in this: https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-2610906...D05P2QA2A282EV

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.
