Thread: Freud 1700VCE router

    Freud 1700VCE router

    I have a Freud 1700VCE router and have always used a 1/2 inch collet. Now I have a need for a 1/4 inch collet but can't find it. I know I can buy one for $20, but that's a bit much for me. Did the router come with a 1/4 inch collet originally?

    Thanks, DKT

    one suggestion dietrich,, when you use the 1/4 adapter make sure you tighten it down well.. some need to be aligned with the slots of the larger collet to get good compression.

    I'm not sure I understand your comment, this is a 1/4 inch collet, not an adapter. Looks just like the 1/2 inch collet only the size is 1/4 inch. But I do appreciate your comment, I used a CMT extension to rout a bowl once and the thing rattled loose. I'm more careful now when using the extension.
