Yes I saw Makita saying " 12mm ( 1/2 ) " which confused me, also the router I'm looking at says on side 12mm max. , initially I thought it was a typo because anyone who works on cars knows 13mm and 1/2 are very close. So if I bought a router with 12mm I presumably could just buy another collet a 1/2 one and that would work ?, are the actual body and shaft of the router the same ?. And no the router bits are not coming with the routers, In fact I've ordered some 1/2 bits but don't have a router yet. I'm in the UK BTW.
Thanks for your reply.
