Have been scrollsawing wall art for several years. The eyes are not what they use to be and the small intricate cuts have convinced me to find a new hobby.
I bought the Bosch 1617EVS. I also bought a dovetail jig. I Think that I would like to try my hand at box making. I used the 1/2" dovetail bit that came with the jig, in the 1/2" collet that came with the router. In the process, I have chanced from the dovetail bit to the 1/2" straight bit several times over a couple days, without problems. yesterday I went out to install my dovetail bit and it would not slid in the collect. Neither would the straight bit fit. I always remove my bit and do not leave any in the router overnight.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
