Default Searching for a collet?

Members often post that they are looking for an odd sized collet. Up until now the best option has been to order an adapter sleeve to use in a larger collet. Adapters work and are cheap enough but I prefer to use the correct sized collet for the job... just one less thing that can go wrong. That is why I wanted to tell you about Elaire Corporation. Elaire offers the best selection I have found in collets, collet nuts and adapters. These are high precision and made of US alloy steel. Popular Bosch, Milwaukee and Porter Cable collets are listed but others are available. If you need a collet or adapter they do not already have available they will custom manufacture one for you. The photo shows some collets I got today; it is easy to remove a collet from the collet nut and snap one of these in. If you are searching for a collet check them out here: Elaire Corporation -Router Collets

If you call with questions or to order be sure to let them know you heard about them on routerforums.

Any idea if the Bosch collet will work on a Craftsman? It looks identical.
I need 6mm.

Be sure and let them know you saw their collets on this forum. I ordered a 7, 8, and a 10mm set from them in May 2012 for my PC890 routers and they work fine.
Made in the USA.

Default RotoZip.


BJ I thought I was the only one that paid any attention to these little 'mighty mites'. I have purchased 3 0f these RotoZips on eBay. Each came with the case, 1/4&1/8 collets, fixed base, and edge guide and some bits. They are the higher end units and never had to pay over $15 (I think). Two of them had never been used and one showed some wood dust. They are great for breaking edges with a 1/4 roundover or chamfer bits. I gave 2 of them away, one to my son and one to a close friend. My son and I leave them set up in the shop, one for chamfering and one for roundovers. They have much more power than most people think...

Where there's a Willis there's a way!

Model 320.27680 14.0A Variable Speed both 1/2 and 1/4 collets.

I have your doubts too but if the OD of the collet is the same I could swap nuts if necessary.

By the way have you ever used Japanese "Supra" bits? I would like to know how they compare to other bits.
