The half-inch collet probably was not unique to your Craftsman router but used by other router manufacturers as well. A little "comparison shopping" could turn up something that will work

Router bits wont fit on my router collet nut is to small.


The two sizes (in the US) for router bit shanks (and collets) are 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch. Some routers use only a 1/4 inch collet. Routers with a 1/2 inch collet also come with a 1/4 inch collet. You need a 1/2 inch collet to hold a 1/2 inch shank. Good luck.

Collet stuck in shaft.


On some models the collet stays put on purpose. You don't have to remove the nut either. But if you really do have to remove the collet and it is the type that is supposed to come out (maybe you need to use the 1/4 inch collet) then just stick a bit into it without the nut and give the bit a sideways whack with a piece of wood. If the collet has been pressed in tight by the nut without a bit in place, then you won't be able to fit a bit into it, and maybe the collet is ruined. Find the largest diameter shaft you can to fit into the hole and pop that sideways. Good luck.

Want to put in new 1/4" collet cone.......how


Undo the collet nut then find something that you can get a firm grip on the old collet and pull it out. If this doesn't work and it is still stuck carefully try an eze- out to remove the old collet. Once you have removed the old collet just insert the new one and replace the nut.

How do you change the collets on the Hitachi m12v2?


Matt, Remove the collet nut completely. The collet should come right out of the end of the motor shaft. Put the other collet in it's place and replace the same nut. I assume you are switching between 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch tools.

How to connect 1/2 inch router bit into dewalt router


Are you asking how to put a router bit with a 1/2 inch shank into a router with a 1/4 inch collet? You need a 1/2 inch collet. Most routers with a 1/2 inch collet can also use a 1/4 inch collet. But smaller routers cannot use a 1/2 inch collet.
If this isn't clear, please ask again.
Thanks for using FixYa.
