Default Muscle Chuck or Similar Chuck for Small Routersi

Is there a muscle chuck or a similar product for a DEWALT DWP611PK router? It isnt hard to change the bits but tightening it could be easier.

I just checked the Musclechuck web site and appears that they are all for 1/2” systems. I am not aware of any alternative either. Probably a case of demand.

I agree re the “tightening” issue on the 611. Otherwise a very nice package.

I find it easiest to remove the motor from the bases when you change bits. I believe Jon is correct that they are only for 1/2" spindles.

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.

Jon is correct, all MUSCLECHUCKS are for 1/2" routers. There are so many low price trim routers on the market that having one dedicated to each common bit isn't out of the question.

I agree the DW611 could be a lot easier to change bits. I wish it had a two wrench system like others. But, It's not that hard for me, I am able to slip my left hand behind/around it and press the lock button while using the wrench with my right hand. Bit change is a 2 minute job including slipping off my dust shoe and replacing it when done.

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.
