Default 8mm collet for PC7518?

Hello,
I have recently purchased a PC 7518 and need to find an 8mm Collet for it.
According to Porter Cable, they don't make one.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a third party source?
Thanks
Brian

Hi Brian

The easy way is just pickup a adapter(s)..

4 pc Collet Reducer Bushing for 8mm, 1/4" Router Bit - eBay (item 140371773484 end time Feb-02-10 16:30:44 PST)

Here's just one more spot,if you are into high end collets and have the bucks.

Here's a link to a place that sells one. More expensive than the adaptors but it's another option.
