New member, old old router

I have a Stanley H-13-B 1/4” router, it is a righteous old tool, but I would like to find a new collet. Any ideas?

welcome, DH - could you post some photos of what you have ? Is the existing collet broken or just missing ?
Ok actually it’s a Stanley H39-B, the base is the H-13-B. Here’s a couple of photos:

Welcome to the forum.
Welcome. That's a pretty old model. I'd look at for the router model number. But I think you may wind up getting a new router. I've never seen a collet like that one. Maybe someone here knows more.
Welcome to the forum.

If it was me, I would consign that router to the top shelf and buy a new, improved router. Maybe a router that can take 1/4" and 1/2" cutters....
BTW, today's collets look like this one. They are precision tools.

You may want to check with Bosch, they bought that original design from Stanley. They may have an option that works for you.
