Default Old stanley router

I have an old Stanley M2B router that uses a 1/2" collet. My dad had this and I am getting it out of storage after 30 years. I'm wondering where to find new collets in 1/2", 3/8" and 1/4"

Hi John

You will be real lucky to find a 1/4" one but I don't think you will find the other two the old routers just didn't come with them...
Just step up to the pump and buy a new router that comes with them..then you will be a happy router user..

Here's one that will do the trick..

I guess I knew the answer before I asked the question. On the other hand, if we don't ask, the answer is always "no".

I looked yesterday at Loews and HD. Sets only, no singles $19 to $39. Questionable as to what they would fit. When you step up to the pump and get the new one, get the accessories that match.

I had to chuckle at the idea of putting a 1/4" collet on this router. That would be like asking if Paul Bunyan carries a nailfile.
These monster routers weigh close to 30 pounds and typically had a hook on top so they could be suspended from the ceiling on a spring for all-day production work. I think there are more suitable routers for using those quarter inch bits.
