Muscle Chuck or Similar Chuck for Small Routersi

Is there a muscle chuck or a similar product for a DEWALT DWP611PK router? It isnt hard to change the bits but tightening it could be easier.

I just checked the Musclechuck web site and appears that they are all for 1/2” systems. I am not aware of any alternative either. Probably a case of demand.

I agree re the “tightening” issue on the 611. Otherwise a very nice package.

I find it easiest to remove the motor from the bases when you change bits. I believe Jon is correct that they are only for 1/2" spindles.

Jon is correct, all MUSCLECHUCKS are for 1/2" routers. There are so many low price trim routers on the market that having one dedicated to each common bit isn't out of the question.

I agree the DW611 could be a lot easier to change bits. I wish it had a two wrench system like others. But, It's not that hard for me, I am able to slip my left hand behind/around it and press the lock button while using the wrench with my right hand. Bit change is a 2 minute job including slipping off my dust shoe and replacing it when done.
