Default Collet replacement

Hi, I'm new to the boards. I have a Craftsman Model 315.275100 plunge router, and am looking for both the 1/4" and 1/2" collet for it. I understand it is made by Ryobi, but I cannot seem to find any replacements. What gives?

Hi, welcome to the forum!

Go to the sears parts site and enter your router number and you will find both parts listed and if you're lucky they will still have them in stock. A little hint here, the screws that are used to mount these are most likely a backwards thread.......

I'm a first time poster dredging up a 5-year old topic knowing this is a shot in the dark...

I also need a replacement 1/2" collet for a Craftsman 315.275100. The router has been discontinued by Craftsman and Ryobi. There are some parts available for this router from them but not the collets.

Does anyone know of another source or are my 1/2" bits useless until/if I purchase a new router?

Thanks,

Tom

Thanks Bob.

Happily I CAN purchase the 1/2 collet for the Craftsman 17543. I tend to be a bit obsessive about this kind of thing - so I currently have 3 collets in the cart! eep!

But before I pull the trigger, I wanted to ask if you are certain this is the same collet used by the 175100?

My memory aint so good but the collet I am "remembering" seemed to be a bit longer than the one shown for the 17543. If you tell me otherwise, I'll believe you. Then again with this fuzzy memory, I'd almost believe you if you told me that 1+1=3.....

Bob,

It is the 1/2in collet as opposed to the nut that I need. I have pictures and they definitely looks different. What do you (all) think?

Sadly I think you are out of luck as far as being able to buy the collet individually. Best option that I know of is to try to buy a second used router and use it for parts. But even on ebay there are not a lot of these that show up and you might end up paying a good bit more than you want to.

Hi Tom

Just buy a new one just for the parts at about 15.oo to 35.oo bucks..take the collet out and you are set to go.. plus you have a new backup motor..
