Default Musclechuck and reducer

Type 12 Musclechuck and 1/4" reducer adapter. Was purchased for someone here and then he decided he didn't want it so it's available.

Type 12 is for Hitachi routers. Musclechuck is slightly used, adapter is brand new.

$75 plus shipping from Detroit,MI or Windsor,ON.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

I'm sure that there is a discerning routologist out there Brian who wants to vastly improve his already excellent Hitachi router.

Doug., you won't regret it, I'm sure that you already have a 4mm ball ended Allen key so that you can get started straight away.

Hey Doug you are for sure buying this Chuck then? That would fit a MV12 Hitachi router too?
I bought that router back when Bob Rosenthal of Oak Park Enterprizes did all his presentations at the Wood Working shows probably 15-20 years ago. What a work horse. I've only put bearings in it once.
I have that same chuck on my Legacy. Those things are awesome.
You will really appreciate it.

kind regards,

It fits the M12V2, M12VE, and the M12VC. I don’t know if it will fit an M12V. It has a completely different collet from the other 3.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thank you Sir
Good to have someone that knows his stuff.

So being the M12V is fairly old do you think those chucks are available for my model then?

Doug you have a type 12 on an M12V? The 3 later models have a collet nut, the M12V doesn’t. On it you screw the collet itself into the shaft so I think the shaft is internally threaded as opposed to the other 3 being externally threaded (I’m not home so I can check). I’m fairly certain that the M12V has the same collet as an older Makita, maybe a 3604. Harry would probably recognize it. The newer 3 have the same collet as a Bosch 1617 (plus a bunch of DWs). I gave my son a 1617 and I’ve interchanged the collet on it with my V2 and VC.
