Default Router Collets

Router Collets

Sorry if this has been posted before but I have two plunge routers - a SKIL 1840 and a B&D XE850E (RP250 similar) - both take the same collet.

My problem is that I do not know what collet I need (the manuals don't say) or where to get them from. I live in France but will purchase anywhere in the World, I just need 'em.

Can anyone please help?

Hi David and welcome. Collets may come in different sizes so make sure you are getting the right one. Some routers sold here with 1/2 inch collets get 12mm collets when sold in Europe.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
