I was trying to find out if Bosch 8mm collets would fit my 1/2" Makita, so going the other way.Short memory span here *embarrassment*...
It was Phillip, but he was asking for a different reason I believe(?).
Stick; show Elliot your collection... LOL!
If yours is a 1617 or the 50 cycle, 230 volt equivalent of it then there is an 8mm collet available. I think there are also 6, 10, and 12mm versions. If your router is one of these then any size you could hope for is available.

Is Stick's collection all Bosch? :wink:
Mine is the Makita 3600 which shares the same collet as the Makita 3612 series, if those Bosch collets would fit it would be great, but no one seems to have both the Makita and Bosch routers to see if they will fit.
also 3/8 and 5'16''....
Using my digital vernier calipers I measure 20mm outside diameter thread with a 1mm pitch on the spindle, I just measured the collet and it's 19mm inside diameter. Sounds very promising. Thanks for your help.Phil I was doing a search to see what it looked like and I found this: https://www.amazon.ca/uxcell-2-inch...=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B073P5ZQCT This looks identical to the Bosch 1617 collet which fits a multitude of other routers as well. The measurements also sound about right. I know the 1617 spindle thread is 19mm diameter. I think the thread pitch is 1 mm but I would have to go measure in the morning to be sure. There was one modekl in between, maybe the 3604, that shares a collet with my Hitachi M12V. The V2 and VC that I have also use the Bosch 1617 collet. Since I am fairly certain that Makita and Hitachi are made in the same factory then there is a very good chance that the 1617 collet is what you are after.
Elaire Corporation makes every imaginable size for the 1617 type and they are not overly expensive. Elaire Corporation -Router Collets
