Quick update:
New collet did the trick--works great. Haven't tried the "bore-brush & naptha-cleaned" old collet yet--having too much fun using the new one!

Yep, that was the solution to my problem, so that would have been my answer too. But then I read Pat's post, so I'll go with him.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Jim, thanks for letting us know what the final solution was. Always nice to keep that in the back of the mind for the next person with a similar problem.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I recall reading that the Bosch Colt went through collets fairly fast, so I just bought an extra 2, stored in the router's case so I can find it. Don't want to stop mid project to order and wait for a new collet.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Collets don't last forever. In your case it will just be a trip to the local big box store and low cost.
