Default Are collets interchangable

I have two different brands of routers the threads on the shaft are the same does that mean the collets are interchangable?

Not necessarily. The shape of the cones they fit into could be different. What are the two routers? A craftsman might interchange with a Ryobi for example since many Craftsmen are made by Ryobi.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Welcome to the forum, Bill.

As Charles said, "not Necessarily".....

Can you give us the make/model of the routers?

PS: I have moved your post to the appropriate section of the forum.

Some are, but most are not.

For instance, I've used Bosch collets and nuts on specific HF router... Which are a big improvement on those.

Being a neophyte woodworker, I really appreciate these questions and the answers provided. They really give me an insight into the equipment we use every day and frequently take for granted.
