Router bit stuck.
How easy was this to achieve.Dismantled the old giant RT & needed to rout new table top for the insert plate. So I thought I would use my Triton 3.25hp router, as it hasn't been run for a while. Installed a straight 1/2 inch shank bit & attempted to set the required depth,but had forgot to install the spring.(Must have spring installed when used freehand) Being in forget mode,I let off the "brake" & the entire weight of the big Triton dropped down on the table & hit "bit first" & jammed said bit in the collet.I removed the collet nut & tried heat gun & tapping but I cant remove it.My memory is deserting me lately so I need some advise on STUCK BIT REMOVAL which is much appreciated.Thank you in anticipation, James
You can't drive a bridge spike with a tack hammer(so I'm told)
