DW 611 Collet Tightness
I have a new DW 611 Kit and the collet for it is nearly impossible to insert a bit into even when fully off the shaft and hand held. I tried cleaning the collet with a brass collet brush and cleaning the bit with no notable difference. I even used a piece of 600 grit sand paper on the bit, still no go. I did get a bit into the collet but had to use a pair of pliers to get it out. I had thought about running a 1/4 drill bit through it but wasn't sure if that is a good idea at the risk of causing damage to the collet.
Any suggestions on how to overcome this minor problem?
