Welcome to the forum,


I am not familiar with that router, but most routers that are designed for 1/2' bits just require removing the reducer and the hole in the shaft and nut is bored for a 1/2"dia, bit.
https://www.amazon.com/Freud-FT2200E.../dp/B000AYTA2K

If you are trying for a reducer to 1/4" shank bits then go on Amazon they have a lot of them that will fit.

We think that Fellisati in Italy made Freud's power tool line. Checking them might be a possibility. I think they made some other brands too. And I might have one if I can find it. I had a 2000 but I can't remember exactly which model it was. I'll see if I can find it tomorrow.

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 found the collet David but when I took it off I found out one segment is broken off. Maybe someone will recognize it and have a suggestion for another source. My belief is that in most cases router makers out source their collets instead of making them themselves. The only makes I'm not sure about yet is PC and these Fellisati made machines.

Found this thread from 2011 about Fellisati routers. https://www.routerforums.com/general...ti-router.html

Hey Thanks - these guys want almost $50 to ship to Canada. Total cost would be $69.28 USD for a collet!
I might have no choice!

That's getting close to $100Can so you have to decide if it's worth that or not. My armature went prematurely (in my opinion) and others have had issues with the speed control which is a cheap carbon disc potentiometer I'm told. They weren't well made and that's probably why Freud got out of the power tool market. They weren't helping the good reputation they've built with their blades and bits.
