|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.|

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

Hi Harry |
I'm sure you've much more experience than I have. If they work for you, it's good enough for me, although I'm still dubious about a single slit collet. Again, why would others go to the greater expense of making multi slit ones if single slit was good enough? I'll have another go laying my hands on a a TRA001.

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.

"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.
