Question about Hitachi M12V2 3Router
I was using the abovementioned router and am unable to remove the bit to insert another one ... I found a similar question on your website, but do not see the solution displayed ...
If I remove the router from the table and position it on a workbench so that I am looking downward at the router bit, which direction to I turn the collet nut to loosen it?
I 'believe' that I should be turning the nut in a CLOCKWISE direction to loosen it, but am not sure ... I cannot find my manual ... THANKS for the help !!!
It is a right-hand thread....heat it with a propane torch and that will loosen the nut

Hello there. Buffalonyman is correct that heaat will loosen any nut. However, your first issue is that you are turning the nut tighter, not looser. As you look down upon the bit, the nut loosens counterclockwise. If you are using a tiny wrench, like the one that may have come with your router, you will be much happier with a real open end wrench. If you don't have a set, it is worth the small investment. enjoy. AND go to sears.com and you can download a manual.
