Default Collets

Can I get a (new) larger collet that will accept a larger shank on a particular bit, than the one that came on a Sears commercial router?

Hi Ron

We need to model number of the router to help on this one.

Disregard. I accepted the fact that the old tool was limited to "yesterday's approach," and went out a got a new one capable of the 1/2" requirement. Thanks for the comment.

Sometimes just the asking causes us to rethink our approach. Don't throw out the old router though. It might be usable for dovetails.

I don't even have a 1/2" router yet and all of my routers were bought since Dec 25, 2009. So it isn't just old ones that can't do 1/2". I am pretty sure there are plenty of older ones that can do 1/2".

Hi Derek,
What kind of router did you buy? Was it a trim router with a 1/4" collet? Most routers now come with the ability to use 1/2" or 1/4" shanked bits.
