I believe I damaged the threads on my DW625. I have no idea how to service something like this. I cannot get the collet cover to screw on, it gets stuck. I have inspected the collet cover which seems perfect. I have pics of the threads. They don’t seem to be trashed beyond measure, but I think I can see some issues.

is this section of the router a part easily replaced? Do I need a machine shop to redo the threads? How do I go about an affordable fix?

any help is greatly appreciated

A tap and die set may be able to recut the threads, if they can reach onto the shaft?
Do you know the thread pitch?

Order a new collet nut from ereplacement parts about 10.00
if the collets bad you can order that 2 but not cheap
if the armature threads are bad take to a repairs shop that can fix the threads

If they aren't terribly whacked out you might get a thread chaser which is a bit less intimidating than a tap and die set.
