Default 1/4 collet for porta cable 5372

anyone know where I can find a 1/4" collet for an old porta cable model 5327 .
it does not take the nut style of the new models .. collet is threaded .

Thanks for any info.

use a reducing collet or go w/ a muscle chuck...

use the search function here for a wealth of information and links...

Rick, the collets all show discontinued for that router. An adapter sleeve is about your only choice. I doubt there is a musclechuck available for it, either.

Here is one of the better adapters...

Whiteside Router Bits 6400 Steel Router Collet with 1/4-Inch Inside Diameter and 1/2-Inch Outside Diameter - - Amazon.com

Here is a source for replacement parts...

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Hi Rick.

My 2c worth.

I would go for a modern router. Many more features.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
