    Thumbs down Surprize!!!!

    tonight i was in the shop and had a round over to do so i grabbed a new 1/2" round over bit made by "infinity tools" and stuck it in and tightened it up.. well i thought i did.. anyway i proceded to do my parts and got them done but as it was stopping i thought i saw a quiver in it.. it stopped, i turned of the router and proceded to take it out. reached for the wrench to loosen it and i could pull it out by hand with out to much trouble so i retightneded it or tried to but it wouldnt tighten down.. put in a whiteside and it wouldnt fit went and got he calipers and found out the shaft on the infifnity was .489 and the whiteside was .500 this bit from infinty was given to me threw a raffle but it may have been a second dont know.. but i do know the hitachi collet dint like it.. so its something that we should be aware of next time.. i got lucky

    Hi Larry ,
    Important point you mention here! Can't imagine having to check this kind of thing as I don't have calipers to use. Would however know something was up if it would not tighten down. Glad you are okay. Worth a letter or 2 of complaint and notification as that is an accident waiting to happen!

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Glad it didn't go flying! I think you should definitely send Infinity a letter stating the shank is small! Lots of potential disaster if they won't tighten down!

    That could have been ugly. Glad you caught it before it launched.

    Definitely not the kind of surprise one wants to find. Glad it ended without bloodshed.
