How to mount these (large) bits in my CMT1 / Trend T10

First: I am a bit of a newbie, hope this is the right place to ask the question.

I have inherited a couple of routers from a neighbor's husband. One of them is a CMT1 (apparently identical to Trend T10).

In the box where these really long bits, along with a holder. The holder (part to the left in first image) looks like it would fit the CMT (has two holes on the side), but there seems to be no thread for it : router has a fine outside thread that fits a collet. The bit holder also has an outside thread.

Can't see if I need to remove something / replace something on the router ?

I received no instruction book.

Hello and welcome to the router forum M
SORRY i have no idea what you have there I am sure someone will be able help you
Mike posted a Manual for the Trend T10 here Manual. From your pics I couldn't make heads or tails out of it.
Those don't look like router bits. See if there's more tools hidden away there.
Those 3 cutters on the right looks like router cutters made for the delta/Rockwell shaper. .They screwed on top of the spindle to use the shaper as a table router. This is all I remember from my youth. My dad had such a shaper.

Interesting Ronald, I was thinking shaper but they didn't look like shaper cutters either. :)
