Question about Makita 3612C Router
I have been able to undo the locking nut and remove the cutting bit with the locking nut from the router but am unable to get the nut and the "spindle" with the expansion cuts down the side of the holding off the cutting bit that was in the router.
If I understand this right you can't remove the bit from the collet. If this is true there might be dirt on the collet and you can try and blow it out with compressed air. What I would do if that doesn't help is support the collet nut allowing the bit to hang free and gently tap on the back of the bit and this will remove it. It is possible that you may have overtightened it or the bit has a burr on it. Good luck
