Default Colt router collet reducer

Is there anywhere that I can get a reducer for my colt hand router collet so I can use 1/8" bits?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry for the old thread bump. Does anyone know if the Rotozip 1/8" collet will fit the Colt? I understand that both machines are made by Bosch.

Not the same the Rotozip is just a little bit bigger by about .020" the norm..you can force it but you may break the collet nut asm. in the Colt.. but you can get the right one from MLCS for about 4.oo bucks..

adaptor bushings and ball bearing guides

Thanks Bob, I appreciate it.
Weird, I swear that all I saw were the "welcome to the forum" replies when this thread displayed.

I really want to be able to run the rotozip bits on rare occasion, but will get much more routine use from the Colt than the Rotozip. The 1/8" collet adapter will seal the deal for me. Thanks for pointing out the link; I can now add another router to the corral with a free conscience!

Have you considered the Trend T4? It has plunge capabilities. The Colt doesn't.
