Good question. It is possible but would require checking them all out. Replacement collets are easy to get from the DeWalt service center and can be ordered from any store that sells them.

If you can figure out the thread and pitch and cross reference with other brands it's easy to get the right part.

Finding the thread and pitch of the different brands of course is the hard part.

But once you know the thread size it should be easy to find one that will work.

Pretty much an exclusive in your case. The one exception, DW 621 uses matching collets and nuts.

I'm in Brazil, I bought 10 years ago one DW621 that came with 1/4" and 1/2' shank collets using 22mm nut size. Later Dewalt changed for 6mm and 8mm shank collets and 17mm nut size. I cant understand why, since in USA it cames with 1/4 and 1/2 collets.
Router bits here aren't easy to buy.
I have a box of Freud router bits ( 6mm shank ) and I'm having a lot of dificulties to buy Router collet 6mm with 22 mm nut. Anyone knows where I can buy collets to fix in my router??

Hello!

Not easy to find collets metric for that!
One way to solve your problem is a reduction sleeve 1/2" to 6mm
exist also 1/2" to 8mm I use them for years with my 1/2 ryobi routers

1/2 to 8mm:
Trend CLT/SLV/8127 Collet Reduction Sleeve | Miles Tool & Machinery Centre

1/2 to 6mm:
Trend CLT/SLV/6127 Collet sleeve 6mm to 12.7mm Collet sleeves

That's the idea, now maybe better shop USA for you , or ebay.

Regards

Merci Gerard
My router is GB made and cames with collets 1/4" and 1/2" and nut 22mm as in USA actually, for other markets, later they have changed the collets for 6mm, 1/4" and 8mm but with nut 17mm.
Today DeWalt call my collets 'obsolete'
Router manufacturers think they are selling client first router.
Only with Festool is possible find several collets dimensions.
