Default Old Router Seeks Collet

I probably know the answer but here goes anyway: Anyone know where to get a 1/2 in. collet for my old Millers Falls Model 7900? I know, I know, but the thing won't die!

Pete,

Welcome to the Router Forums.

I have two MF 7900 units that I use. One has a 1/2" Collet and the other has a 1/4" Collet.

Oddly enough, it is my 1/4" collet that gets the most use as most of my bits are 1/4".

If I were to put a price on just the collet, it would have to be $30.00. I feel like that is steep for a collet, but in this case selling the collet alone would render the router very difficult to sell. Alternatively, I would sell the complete Router with the 1/2" collet and the 1/2" straight bit in the picture for $75.00.

Regards,

Bill

Hi Pete

I don't know why you would want to dump more money into a OLD router you can get a NEW one in the box with both collets for about 90.oo bucks.
