Hi Diego, Welcome to the forum
Don't apologize for your English, my Spanish (or, is it Portugese in Argentina) is non existant.
Electrical requirements should be on a plate on the motor. I think most industrialized countries require that. If there is a machine shop near you they should be able to give you the diameter and threading. Take the router and/or the collet and nut to them. They should have gauges to measure that sort of thing. Once you have that information you could e-mail potential suppliers to verify that they are selling what you need.
Once again, welcome aboard.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi John, thanks for replying, I understand what you say but here the dealer sells only the collet DEWALT 1 / 4 "and so can tell me if the collet 1 / 2" sold in the U.S. has the same screw diameter manufactured in the Czech Republic and selling here.
That is the reason why some user wonder who owns a dw618 or dw621 which is the diameter of the shaft to see if it is equal to mine.
Thanks

Hi,

I'm not sure if this will help you or not but, check their website. DEWALT | Power Tools, Contractor Tools and Accessories Look for their "parts and service" tool. You should find something a shortcut to a link similar to this: DeWALT ServiceNET - Official Online Store for DeWALT, Porter Cable, Delta, and Black and Decker Parts

If this is from the Czech Republic, you may need to go through the location selection. Third selection on the main page. The process described above should be the same. Either way, this should bring up a "specs" page or manual for you. Here the size should be listed.

Ken, Thanks for responding, I did what you say but in the Czech Republic page specifies 1/4" and it's all in Czech language and only where it says 1/2" is in English, caught my attention and do not trust that information, I prefer that one user take the measurement and report to me.
thanks

You should be able to contact a DeWalt rep. through the website. They should give you the proper specs. I should note. What's made here in the U.S. doesn't always match or equal that of what is made in EU., or other countries.

i was reading carefully the page and says the 1500watt version with 1/2" collet, mine is 1100watt and accept 6mm & 8mm collet, will be different engines and different diameters of shaft?
I'm seriously considering selling my DeWalt 621 and buy a Makita 3612C ...
what is your opinion?
regards.

The "wattage" difference should have nothing to do the the shaft diameter. Again, I don't have a DeWalt, in fact, I'm not a big fan of them period. Just a bad experience with them.

If you intend on purchasing the Makita 3612C, why sell the DeWalt? Keep it for using the 1/4" bits. Myself and a few others DO have the Makita 3612C. It's a great router. I have 2 of them and have never had any issues with them at all. I don't know what's available to you in Argentina, check with what you're willing to spend. The Makita's aren't cheap nor are they too terribly expensive.

Let some others chime in first before you make any decision. The more info. you have, the easier it will be for you.

once again thanks for replying, I use the router as a hobby for make furniture for my house and not professional, here sell only dewalt bosch & makita as good brands, the rest is all Chinese and poor quality, and not all has 1/2" collet also not get 1/2" shank router bits easily.
Regards.

Hi Diego,

I know for a fact that the Makita 3612C has the 1/2" collet, it also comes with a 1/4" reducer sleeve to use with 1/4" bits. I believe that there may be metric "sleeves" for the Makita as well, in case metric bits are available to you. In fact, some area's only deal with metric. The Bosch, I think has both collets or it may be similar to the Makita, uses a reducer sleeve. Bosch and Makita are both excellent routers. I'd say, you can't go wrong with either of them.
