replacement collet for Harbor Freight router??
My Dad's sister gave me her ex-husbands old router. But it's missing the collet. Yes I know it's probably a crappy router, so please don't say "return it and get a better router" because that's just not possible. And yes I searched this forum and google first but no luck.
It's branded as a "American Tool Exchange" 1/2" plunge router but it looks exactly like the Chicago Electric routers on the Harbor Freight website. Except a different color, and probably much older. BTW, I'm hoping to make a router table with it.
Amazon has collets for porter cable, craftsman, dewalt, etc., I just need to know which one to buy. Are they universal? like angle grinder parts? Do I need to measure the output shaft threads?
