Default Adaptor Bushing in a Bosch Colt

Is there some trick to removing a bit from an adaptor bushing?? I recently used a 1/4" - 1/8" (MLCS) adaptor bushing with 1/8" (straight and dovetail) bits for the first time. I started with the straight bit and could not get it out of the bushing when I finished routing. I finally forced the bit out, put the dovetail bit in the collet and tightened the collet. I removed the adaptor without running the router and found that tightening the collet had frozen the dovetail bit in the bushing. After a couple cut fingers I eventually forced the dovetail bit out of the bushing.

are trying to use burrs or Dremel bits in your Colt...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!

I was using 1/8" bits that are part of MLCS Pins and Tails Through Mini Dovetail Template kit.
