Purchased a plunge router from Ryobi and the recommended Ryobi router table.
Problem is that with the router attached to the table and the plunger completely compressed only a small fraction of the bit extends above the table. Any suggestions ! ! !
Why you're wating for them to come in look in your tool box for a good used short 18mm wrench to use on the 1/4" one and a 1 1/16" one for the 1/2" one. ( 1/4" one,I use a short type Snap-On for the one I have,about 4 1/2" long.)
The 1 1/16" is a big wrench but you can get around this by finding one of the Stamped out wrenchs that come with many tools (called a service wrench)
Many have a 1" one as a standard size or metic one that you take to the grinder and open it up to 1 1/16", if you don't have one in the junk box you can find them at the flea market for a buck or two.

Thanks Bj - Ordered two collet extenders, one for 1/4" shank bits and one for the 1/2". Sounds like the solution I needed. Will give them a try as soon as they are shipped. Mr. Bill
