Default 1/4" Collet for Hitachi M12V

I have searched through these excellent forums and read just about everything on M12Vs! But haven't found a clear answer.

Is it possible to buy a 1/4" Collet for a Hitachi M12V?

I do not want to use reducing collars.

I phoned Hitachi today and they gave me a part number of 323293. However on googling this part number it looks like it's not for the M12V but for a Die Grinder - Hmm....

They also gave me the following part numbers ...

12mm Collet - 310794
6mm Collet - 932627

I have an email in to Hitachi (UK) but perhaps someone here has already been through this?

Many thanks,
Roy

D'oh... My first post and I screw it up :-(

It looks like the 323293 number is a 1/4" Collet for the M12V...

The 6mm looks like the one for the die grinder...

Apols - I put it down to age... - perhaps someone will take me for a walk later :-)

Ahhh - Have not yet found the part! All I have are some part numbers by phone from Hitachi, some of which seem to be a bit suspect! I'll post here as I get more information. I'm wating for an email to confirm that they are for the M12V and not done by reducing sleeves.

I would have thought someone on these forums would have already been through this. If there is anyone out there with a 1/4" Collet (not reduction sleeves) in an M12V would they please post here just to confirm they exist!

I have just spoken to my local Hitachi service/spare part dealer and he thinks the part number they have given me for the 1/4" collet is just a reducing sleeve. I have a sneaking suspicion that Hitachi don't do a 1/4" Collet for this machine.

Mailee - Apols but I can't respond to your PM - When I try I get the following message...

"Sorry, you're not permitted to use the private message system until you reach the minimum required post count. You will be able to recieve private messages, but you will not be able to reply or send new private messages."

Anyway - keep an eye on this thread and I'll post anything I find out here.

Bob,

Thanks for your response.

Unfortunatly that part is not for a router. It's for a Die Grinder.

Thanks,
Roy

Bob,

Opps - missed the photo.

The part in the link is for a die grinder.

The photo is a reducing ring for the for the M12V.

I'm looking for a 1/4" collet. No reducing ring.

Thanks,
Roy

Bob,

Just for completeness...
From the Hitachi-UK web site the part number for the reducing sleve in your picture is...

956927Z Chuck Sleeve Reducer 1/2" - 1/4"

Assuming your photo is a 1/2" to 1/4" !

Bob,

Thanks for that - Yes - I have that part number also, but the description of "Collet Chuck" is wrong. It's a Reducing Sleve not a collet. As per your photo.

Not sure why they have different part numbers for appparently the same thing. Maybe one is 12mm to 1/4" rather than 1/2" to 1/4". All a bit of a muddle really.

The price also gives it away. The 1/2" and 12mm collets are about $29 in the US - about 29 in the UK - twice as much !!! I imagine a 1/4" collet if it exists would be a similar price.

The reduction sleeves are about $7 / 7.

Many thanks,
Roy
