Default 8mm collet & nut set for B&D Quantum router

I have a B&D Quantum (Model BD6200 Type 1) plunge router. I think it may be basically the same as an Elu MOF96 (European) or a Dewalt 615. I am looking for an 8mm collet and nut set for my B&D Quantum router. Do the 8mm collet and nut set for the Elu or the Dewalt fit the B&D Quantum? And, if so, where could I obtain this in the US?
Thanks in advance for the info
Mark

Welcome aboard Mark.

Here's a parts drawing Black and Decker BD6200 Parts List and Diagram - Type 1 : eReplacementParts.com. Click on parts 42 and 43, and it says they interchange with Dewalt DW615 Types 2 and 3. Since they don't list the collet size, i'd suggest a call to ereplacementparts to see if they have an 8mm for either version. If they truly interchange, you may even be able to source from Dewalt directly or a Dewalt dealer.

Hope this helps.

Guys when do you actually use a 8mm collet ? I looked threw some of my Freud router bit catalog and even the metric size of bits on the cutter part used a 1/4" shaft .
Is there a brand of bits that needs an 8mm collet ?

I've never used 8mm, nor 3/8"...and will try to avoid adding more stuff to the inventory. If i'm thinking correctly, 8mm is one of the European standard sizes. Perhaps in Australia as well--we'll wait for that side of the world to wake up to answer. I just know i see a lot of references to 8mm collets.

Makes sense .
It got me wondering today as my Festool came with a 1/4-3/8-1/2 collets and when I looked at accessories today I see they have a 8mm available .
No use ordering that if there's no reason .
I grabbed my Freud catalog and as I mentioned seen that even the metric bits had imperial shafts .

Some of the newer small routers in Australia now come with 8mm collets.

Another good reason to stick with the Triton. Makita set....

8mm shank size is one of the standards in Germany, and is even catered to by Leigh, who have their range of bits available in this shank size. My old Festo router came with 8mm and 1/4" collets, and before I acquired a Makita 3612, 8mm was a good upgrade from 1/4" bit size - (particularly seeing I won a Startel router with a full set of 8mm bits, in a lucky draw at a product demo)
