Default 1/2 collet for Craftsman 31517492

I have a little used Craftsman Router model 31517492 which has a 1/4" collet. At 1.5 HP, I think I could use router bits with 1/2" shafts. Sears Parts does not list even the 1/4" collet (only the nut). Does anyone know if a 1/2" collet adapter (from Sears or anyone else) is available which would fit my router?
Thanks,,

I don't think that size of router will handle a 1/2" collet.

Hi Roger

I'm sorry but you are SOL, it's time to buy a new one for about 100 bucks in the combo kit and you get it all in a new router kit

And use the old one for the light jobs if and when you find a collet for it..
