Default router shank size

Hi I'm Donna and new to woodworking and this forum. I recently purchased a router bit it had a 1/2 " shaft all my other bits are 1/4". I can't send it back and I sent a lot on it. Are bit sizes interchangeable in a router or can I buy a piece for my router to let it except a 1/2" shaft? Thanks

Donna, welcome to Router Forums, glad to have you join us, I'm positive the members of the community would be more than willing to answer any questions you have
Why can't you send it back,
if not, someone my be interested in buying it from you ,tell us type what bit it is.
No you can not use 1/2" shank bits in a 1/4" router, but can use 1/4" bits in a 1/2" router.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Welcome, Donna!
On the bright side, you now have a perfectly good reason to buy another router...
The members will testify that you cannot have too many!

Welcome Donna...

are you sure that's the model #???
a search gave me 0 results for model number: 513.174710...
chances are a replacement collet in 1/2" is available thru sears parts...
