Question about Milwaukee Tool 48 66 0975 Collet 1/4" Die Grinder

1 Answer

I can't find a 1'4" collet for a Milwaukee DG14-50-Q die grinder. The removable collet chuck came with 6mm & 8mm collets. The collet Id No is 48-66 0965 but is no longer made. Does anyone know of an aftermarket collet manufacturer who makes these?

    The Milwaukee DG14A50Q die grinder was made in Germany for European and Australian markets and externaly looks identical to models 5211 & 5223 exept it has a removable collet chuck instead of a 3" or 4" grinding wheel. It came with a 6mm and 8mm collet part No's 0978 for 6mm & 0976 for 8mm. There was a 1/4" collet made as well but is not available now according to the Australian agent. These collets are the same angle as the "in spindle" type but much wider and longer, 29.5mm / 1.61" long & 18.7mm / .73" in diameter. The 1/4" collet I am after is not part No 0975. I spent 6 hours surfing the net and I think the part I want may be 48-66-0970 but all the suplier pictures show the small collet under this number. I would be gratefull to know where to get the correct collet or where I can get one made.

The 48-66-0970 has ribs on the outside and fits the old 5195 die grinder. If this is accurate let me know and I will try further to locate it for you. Where are you located as this might help

I have a Ryobi R-151 router with an 8mm collet, I cannot find and router bits with 8mm shanks, is their a 6mm collet, or adaptor available for this model? Regards Pete

There are 8mm to 6mm adapter sleeves available. If you take the collet along to a power tool store they may be able to supply you with a suitable 6mm collet. I can't find what type of collet is in the router, but I'm betting it is a ER-11 type in that size range.

The collet seems jammed and I cannot adjust...

This is just a longshot, but look down inside the chuck with a flashlight and see if your chuck-mounting screw has migrated out. I had the same problem with my Milwaukee, and turns out that's what it was. The collet was jamming up on the chuck screw.

Want to put in new 1/4" collet

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.

The collet stocks and I don't know what to do? Any advice will be good, thanks

Hi, W/D here.

The collets are a friction fit, and tend to bind after being left in one position for a time.
Try this: Tap the bit, if there is one in the chuck, towards the motor. This sometimes creates the slack needed to remove the bit. Put a little light oil on the collet before you replace the bit.
If no bit is in the collet, try a light oil, and tap directly on the collet with the chuck collar off. Also, tapping from different angles after adding the oil will help to dislodge the collet.
One other method is to set and hold the shaft lock after oiling, and try to rotate the collet slightly while exerting an outward (pulling) force with pliers or channel locks. Be careful with this method, as too much force can result in damage to the collet.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I remove a broken off collet? On my Milwalkee Die Grinder the collet is Broken off in the Shaft. I need to remove the collet to install a new one.

I would try and put the collet nut back on and gently hit the side with a hammer to see if you can loosen it, this should work

Cannot figure how to get the point onto the die grinder.

Here is a link with illustrations on installing grinder points. Scroll about 1/4 of the way down and you'll see two links for "Operators Manual" Click the one that matches your model.

Hope this helps you out.

How do you fit 6mm collet cone on new produce

You have, I presume, already locked the spindle and loosened the collet nut with the wrench, have you not?
Once the nut is loose, you should be able to remove it by spinning it off the threads by hand. Then insert the 6 mm collet cone into the collet,
carefully thread the collet nut back onto the collet, and tighten it with the bit in place.
Sometimes bits are a snug fit, especially into a new collet. If you have some fin sandpaper you can gently chamfer the very end of the bit where you first insert it into the collet, and this may help to insert it. If you have to, push a bit.
I have noticed that some companies tend to mill the shafts of their bits a little too close to the exact tolerance, or even oversize them slightly, and this can cause frustration when inserting their bits. In exceptional circumstances, I have resorted to polishing a couple of small bit shafts with very fine (600 grit or so) emory cloth, just to allow the bit to enter the collet. I would not recommend this with a new router collet, unless you have checked the bit with a micrometer and it is oversize. Odds are you just need to break things in a little.
The force need not be brutish, but you may need to use some force, yes.

If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
