If you're nervous about it, you might do well to find a tool repair service to remove it for you. I personally have no interest in repairing machines. Using them, yes, fixing them, no thank you.

if she can push the router nut back on the collet nut , she can thread it back on enough to pop it loose.

i believe she over tightened the router nut and the collet is jammed tight

Ive seen these separate in the shop several times. They do wear..,
I’m an idiot I have extra collett ans nut and I picked up the wrong one, I evidently had a collett in the spindle stuck not realizing it was there. It was a da moment

Now that's handled, how about sharing what kinds of projects you like to do, My wife is a pretty good artist, so I wind up making picture frames. Don't do furniture since the house is too full already.

I was gonna say that I have separated the collet before by using an old butter knife and a mallet to gently drive the collet out by the lip 1/4 at a time. It slightly compresses the collet and pushes it out at the same time.
