Default Need collet nut for Bosch POF 500

Greetings;

my old Bosch POF 500 (purchased in 1987!) still works well, as it is suitable for small jobs only, but recently the collet nut broke (metal fatigue fracture).

Does anyone know if and where I can find a replacement nut? Or what nut could be used alternatively?

With thanks

Dimitri M

Welcome back good doctor. I haven't seen you post in while and was thinking about you the other day and here you are. I hope you've been well.

I did a quick search Dimitri and found something that may be promising. Buy Spare Parts for Bosch Router POF 500 A - 0 603 261 842 - Powertool Spares

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.

I found " Bosch Laser & Level Parts/ Parts Tree.com"

Good timing. I just bought a Bosch Colt router and the damn collet broke the first time I swapped bits out.

Have an Ordinary Day...

Hi Dimitri

I've had a scout around for you through our suppliers in the UK. If yours is the older type collet where the nut uses a 14mm wrench and the top end of the collet is 8mm diameter then I'm afraid that Bosch have discontinued the nut (although not the collets). If yours is the newer one with the 10mm collet and where the nut is 17mm AF then you are probably in luck. Take a look at the small inset drawing here to see what I mean.

Regards

Phil

First Dimitri shows up and now you Phil. I hope you are back to join in the discussions. We've missed your sage advice.

Number one, I am overwhelmed by the number of friends who greeted me back. I owe each and everyone of you a personal reply, but I am at work now, so talk back later.

Number two, I had a brief look at the various sources. Even if I find the bit, it will be more than 20US$ or equivalent. On the other hand, a heavily used such router comes up in e-Bay now and then, for a fiver - what do you think, friends?

With thanks
