Unsticking 1/4 inch collett
I was going to try out a couple of new 1/4 shaft router bits I bought and they wouldn't go into the collett. I thought for a while the person I bought them from on ebay had sold me some exotic diameters. But then I tried some bits I had used before without a problem, and they wouldn't go in either.
Cleaned up the collett as best I could, but still no-go. Cleaned the shafts of the bits, still no-go.
I'm probably using the wrong cleaner. I used some stuff I bought at wood for cleaning the pitch off saw blades.
What do you guys use for cleaning a collett?
And is there another kind of problem I should be looking for?
