Metric collet and Imperial bits don't mix. Collets are incredibly precise, a few thousandths is enough movement to tighten it up. Here's a pix of the parts of a collet, just FYI.

I have also attached a pdf of the 18 plus things that really sped up my learning curve. Note that it's long, but has pictures. And I did it over a period of a decade, my peak earning years, so don't think you have to do it all at once. Ask lots of questions, we love to give the next bunch of woodworkers a leg up.

Stick will be along shortly with a set of pdfs that are as good as any two or three books on woodworking. Be sure you read through them. Safety is a huge issue in woodworking!
