Thumbs up Router collet replacement

I need to replace the collet on my ancient 3.2 amp Stanley Tool "Handyman" router. The model number is 039A. The existing collett has seized a 1\4 inch straight bit and refuses to release it. Any advice on where to get a replacement collett. Thank you. Raybo.

Hi raybo

That maybe a hard items to find

Try this get your heat gun out or hair dryer out and put some heat on the nut..
Then put the bit in some cold water but just the bit...then tap the bit out...use your cloves the nut must be HOT ....

Then WD40 the nut and clean it out with some steel wool...
Wood pitch can build up and lock the bit in place...

hope this helps

Hi Rabo -
I'm not familiar with that particular router, but have "been there" with that problem. Be sure that the collet is not missing a snap ring. I had a Craftsman router with a collet like that. After I replaced the snap ring and then loosened the collet, the bit fell out easily. Good luck !
