harrysin Peter, take a look at this forum, this guy in Japan sells Triton with 1/2" and 12mm collets plus 6mm and 8mm sleeves.

istracpsboss I just realised whose site that is when I checked out his other stuff. More temptation !

istracpsboss Thanks Bob ! All I need to sort out now is something for 12mm. Some of my panel raisers are 12mm shanks, which need to be used in the table. I can't see a reducing sleeve working for that as there isn't emough metal.12mm is quite common in Europe.

Cheers

Any good sources of 8mm and 12mm sleeves to suit 1/2" collets ?

Peter, the 10mm sleeve only leaves a wall thickness, or should I say thinness, of 1.35mm, hardly enough material to have more than one slot.

dovetail_65 Well my PC and Milwaukee both came with entirely different collets for each size bit, included with the router, not a little insert.

Actually, all my DeWalt's I have came with two separate collets for 1/4" and 1/2" too.

Only my Hitachi and old Makita came with a insert sleeve collet.

harrysin "Why would other manufacturers like DeWalt provide proper collets if they could get away with cheaper reducing sleeves?"


Manufacturers of many products sell them at little or no profit, relying on accessory or consumables sale for ongoing profit. Good examples are water filters and printers, the former relies on ongoing sales of filter cartridges and the latter on ink cartridges. But who really knows the actual answer to your question Peter, one thing I do know is that there is no problem with router manufacturer's reducer sleeves, if there are Chinese copies out there, that may be different.

Not so Peter, the gap when tightened is infinitesimal, meaning that 99.9% of the cutter is gripped.
