Default Stanley Industral Router

I recently aquired a Stanley Ind router with a 91258 motor, model .02 & type 82902 base, model .03. The collet is 3/8". I am only farmiliar with 1/4" & 1/2" bits. Why does this router have a 3/8" collet?

Hi Ron

At one time Stanley was into routers big time, the OLD routers did come with the 3/8" collet but now days it's just one more paper weight..

Well, those Stanleys are oldtimers, the newest should be just about thirty years old now. There were, and is perhaps, some 3/8" router bits, but usually the Stanleys were supplied with 1/4" or 1/2" collets as well.

However old, they are quality tools. I use one with an extended baseplate and a permanently mounted 1/16" roundover bit.
