Default Collet for B&D

I have an old Black and Decker Type1 2HP Router. I am wanting to use it for a Router Table as it has heaps of grunt. Unfortunately the 12mm or maybe its a 12.4mm (1/2") since its really old, has broken and needs replacing. I cant seem to get a Support Contact for B&D in New Zealand so putting out there to see if any one knows where I can get spare bits and pieces for aged Black and Deckers?

Hey, Jabco; welcome!
One of our members, Reule is particularly fond of B&D. He's in Oz but pretty sure he's got a handle on B&D parts and service down under.

Try some service agents first
using
BLACK+DECKER
They might be able to get you a collet from routers that have armature burnt.

Otherwise
try
https://www.ereplacementparts.com/ located in UK
They are usually cheaper than
australia's
https://www.toolspareparts.com.au
But are still expensive

I would also try ebay for AFTERMARKET collet if spares are too expensive.
Spare Parts store prices are usually 300% higher than sales office price.
Or
Perhaps just buy another router brand new or used.

It looks very similar to the collet in my old DW 610 which appears to be the same as an old Bosch WK type collet. Elaire Corporation -Router Collets scroll down to see it.

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.

The Collett has a male thread and so screws into the shaft rather than a Nut clamping a collett into the shaft.
Thank you for the the links.

it's probably used on some other routers, most everything is made in China, and they tend to re-use parts in other tools to save money.. Searspartsdirect https://www.searspartsdirect.com may have it, if it's still made, since they have the contacts to many manufacturers(Sears don't make anything themselves).. they claim to be able to get parts for almost anything!..

JABCO saysin OP that it's an old, and apparently obsolete B&D router.
Toss it and start with a new, modern, state of the art machine. Seriously, i know it hurts but bite the bullet; it's time.
If you were contracting, would you put this much time and effort into trying to resuscitate a worn out tool?
