How to stop a ¼" bit from moving up in its collet?
I purchased a Triton Router along with my Sommerfeld Fence probably 10 years ago. It worked fine with ½ bits, but ¼" bits were hit and miss as far creeping up. Most bits would only move a millimeter or so, but every carbide spiral bit I tried pulled up before I could complete a dovetail. Sommerfeld send me 2 new collets and neither of them made a bit of difference. It was like a screw backing out. I returned the router for credit and bought a Bosch. That solved the problem.
