Default Where can you find cheaper router collets?

Hi folks, 1st post and just wanted to jump right into it. Where can I find a cheaper or alternative 1/4 shank router collet/adapter?

I snagged a Milwaukee 5670 1/2 shank router from a pawn shop for $15 and went online to see about an adapter with the cheapest been $22 (part # 48-66-0985).

Can I use a cheaper substitute or will I be screwed? Thanks folks for having a very knowledgeable forum that makes life that much easier to deal with.

Buy the correct part. Soon you will be buying router cutters that cost more than your setup.

Ditto!

The alternative requires surgery!
