Unhappy 1/4 inch collet triton router

I am feeling pretty stupid but I can't fiqure out how the 1/4 collet goes on bushing on Triton Router. The insert within the collet seems too large to fit into bushing? What I am missing. Thx.

Chris, I may be getting the terminology confused....

Do you have a separate 1/4" collet or a 1/4" insert that goes into a 1/2" collet.

I think of a bushing as a guide bushing that attaches to the base plate.

Hi Chris, my Triton has separate collets for 1/2" and 1/4" bits. On mine, I just unscrew the 1/2" collet and screw in the 1/4" collet. I know we men don't like to do this, but if there is a manual see if there are pictures to follow. Also, whenever I install any router bit I tug on it to make sure it is secure prior to starting the router. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

James--I have a Collet with an internal "floating" socket. The internal socket "seems" to large to fit into open chuck in the router? Thx for previous reply.

These shots show the collet removed from the lower chuck, what it looks like with a bit secured and three sizes of reducer sleeves. Perhaps these shots will help you to explain clearly what your problem is.

EDIT: I see that the forum is still duplicating photographs.

Default This is my TRA001

Hello all. This is my first post, but I have a Triton so I thought I would jump in. The first picture shows the 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch collets upside down next to bits that go into them, and the other two pictures show them installed. I hope this helps you out Chris.

Fred and everyone else-thx for trying to help. Fred's picture is what I have with an exception. There is no collet inside my threaded 1/2 inch collar. I am a new woodworker so I may have confused the issue with wrong terminology. And the manual I have does not have one mention of this part of machine. So then, the collet must be already mounted on the bit holder. If so, i will have to remove the collet already mounted. before I destroy something--what is procedure for this??

Got any pics of your stuff?

I know this sounds pretty dumb, but are you sure that is the correct collet for the Triton? I have a pair of Bosch's along with the Triton.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
