Very nice find for your friend , Harry. |
Just show that if you look hard enough you will find almost anything.

Mine has 1/4", 1/2", 6mm and 8mm. A 12mm would have been useful, but you can't have everything ! They fit my DeWalt and Ryobi routers too, which is sometimes handy. Although the supplied cutters are all 1/4" and 1/2", I've a few 6mm Bosch and 8mm Freud ones and those collets enable wider use of them. |
It makes you wonder what the landed price is, in bulk, if they can sell them for these prices.

|harrysin||I believe the price was $169.00 which would have been a super price over here. There were four places for collets but only the 1/4" was there, plus the 1/2" one on the router.|

Hi Harry |
What did the receipt say the price was? I've exactly the same set that I got brand new off German eBay a couple of years ago. The router is badged MacAllister. I paid around Eur30 for the lot. It was so cheap I was willing to take a risk. The four collets fit several other routers I've got and were worth it by themselves, particularly as they cover metric sizes as well as the usual 1/4" and 1/2". Four collets, a 1250w router and 50 cutters for that price were astonishing.

We have done several projects and yes we could make some money but really want to wait until we are properly set up to do it commercially.
We have a vision.

Have a great day

Hey, as good a friend as Trevor is, he's keeping it all for himself. I forgot to mention that it also came with a 1/4" collet. Over the years Trevor has brought me lots of first class wood, mainly Jarrah boards. He has brilliant vision, one day a couple of years ago I spent a day with him driving along bush roads and at one point he pointed and said look at that kangaroo, I searched the scene and couldn't see it, not until we were almost level with it. I don't know if his sight is related to the fact that he produces so much iron that he has to donate blood two or three times a year. |
As for goodies in Fremantle, It's such an expensive place to live now, I doubt that the dump bins would hold anything of value.
It's nice to see you back John.
