There are two measuring systems, and each has two basic shank sizes. If you machine is metric, then shanks are either 6mm 8mm or 12mm. If Imperial, that's 1/2 and 1/4 inch. The collet only changes a few thousandths between loose and tight, so they are not interchangeable. The router instructions will give you the required shank size, but usually, bigger is better.
