James. I'm not sure what you're going to use the router for, but There is a whole family of bits with 10mm shanks, also some 5mm bits. You can get adapters for 1/2 and 1/4 inch in the accessories section in WWW.schmitt32.com.hello, im literally newbie on woodworking, got a Makita M3600. in my location it comes with 12,8,6 mm bushing/collet
while checking online for spiral bits and surfacing bits i realized most of the bits are either in 1/2' (12.7mm) or 1/4" (6.35) sizes.
Is it safe to get an adapter like on this photo; L is the actual collet and R is the adaptor ?
I saw some 8mm spiral and surfacing bit can I use CNC spiral or surfacing bit on my Makita hand router ?
