Default question for the MuscleChuck Gurus

I have a MuscleChuck which I a quickly becoming quite fond of (The original Hitachi Router Collets weren't the best.....) and I am set up for 1/2 and 1/4 inch bits. I do have a handful of 1/8 inch bits that use a slip on collet adapter. Has anyone ever used these inside of the 1/4 inch collet adapter, or do I need to spend another $30 for the 1/8 inch MuscleChuck adapter?

Right now I have swapped back to the Hitachi collet when I need them, but that's a pain.

I haven’t had a chance to try any of my reducers yet but it shouldn’t make a difference if you are chucking a bit or a reducer.

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.

I don't fancy a reducer in a reducer, a precision chuck like the MUSCLECHUCK deserves a precision reducer.
