My wife's grandfather had this and I acquired it after her grandparents passed away. Anyway I have used it for several projects the last one I was working on the collet broke. I have done some searching to find a replacement but no luck. In searching I have found similar shaped collets but nothing that looks exactly like it. Is there somewhere where I can cross reference router model and a replacement collet. I have no manual just the broken collet?

I just checked ereplacement parts and they had zero parts for this. Welcome, and hope you can locate one used. Give it a day or two for someone here who might have a source or know a substitute. I think you'll need to work out the diameter and thread count for starters.

Thanks I will keep waiting. May have to buy one and use it for parts

In some cases, tools we inherit, have a sentimental value, but are not practical to maintain.

Maybe a newer, more modern router would be a good purchase?

May I suggest that you adapt a modern Makita 1 1/4 HP Router Model RT0701C to your table which originally only had a 7/8 HP router.
Just drill a few holes on the Table to fit the RT0701C which is narrow enough and height adjustment by rack and pinion is similar.to your original.
