I haven't seen a lincoln log in a long time, but I'd say something in the neighborhood of 3/8" round over bit would do it. It's going to depend on the size of stock you round off. Take off 1/2 or a little less than 1/2 the width of your square "blanks", and use that number as the radius of the roundover bit. If you want not a full 1/4 of a circle profile, use a little bit larger bit and don't raise it all the way out of the base to cut.
By the way, I'd recommend you use a router table to run these pieces, or you're not going to have much left to rest on for the final pass. With a router table, you can leave a square bit on each end that you don't route, (and cut off later), that guides the piece against the table and fence.
Much safer IMHO.
Good luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

I have a B&D Router KW850E. It has collars and collet nut to take bits with 1/4 inch and 5/16th's shank. Can I get a collet nut and collar for 12mm or 1/2 inch?


probably not as the shanks of the router bits fit in the spindle shaft of the router which is around 1/2" dia
could always talk with manufacturer as to find an adaptor or like bit of equipment

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.

Router bits


Mike, The fit is just a little more snug than you expect. The collet is springy, and will expand to fit your bits, even if they were oversize (which is very unlikely). Put on a leather glove and just push the shank of the bit into the collet. Do not try to file down the shank of your router bits, you will only make them run eccentric. You don't need to remove the collet. Just loosen the locking nut about a half turn after it is easy to turn. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa. Al Kupchella

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.

First you will need to log on the routers homepage,
type 192.168.100.1
Log into the configuration page using your username and password.

Default password is motorola default username is admin
Select wireless tab,then select network.

change the essid from motorola to a different name.press save changes
next select the security tab,on the encryption select enable64 bit.

Now select key 1 radio button and enter a 10 digit number.WRITE THIS DOWN. when done select save changes and log off.You will need to enter this number into any wireless devices you may have in the house.

The router bits will not fit in the collet. When the collet snaps into the collet nut the bit does not fit.


The collet is loosely screwed on, correct?
Is it close, or 1/4" off. You may need an adapter for different sized bits.
I have noticed, particularly with Freud bits, that they seem a bit oversized. Try putting the bit in the collet before you insert the collet into the router.
If you're very careful, you can use fine emory cloth (like 400 grit or higher) to polish the bit by cutting a long strip and clamping the bit in a vice, then gently polish the shank a little to allow it to fit into the collet. Pull back and forth on the ends of the sandpaper like you were buffing shoes, but I would only recommend this if you can use a micrometer to check the shank and it is in fact oversize.
You could create a dangerous situation if you polish too much and the bit is not held securely in the collet and flies out when the router is under load.
Another technique is to sand a slight chamfer on the end of the bit to help it slide into the collet.
Or return it and try another brand.

Different Bit shanks


Those with larger bit shanks can hold larger blades. For large joinery cuts, buy a router with a large bit-shank diameter.
