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.

    yeah thanks i was able to figure it out. I had the rigth idea all along but the reason i was confused was i couldnt seem to get the 1/2" collet out with my hands, until i decided to get some pliers and then i was able to pull it out

    It did seem like an odd question. It never occurred to me that it was stuck. Glad you worked it out.

How do I change parts, i.e. from grinding wheel to sandpaper wheel?


There is a collet type on most rotary type tools. This is located on the end of the tool where the grinding wheel is inserted in the device. The collet has a normal thread pattern. Turn counter clockwise to loosen the collet. Some time the collet gets tightened to toght and then just take a block of wood and gently hit the collet to see if this will loosen the bit.

Bit wont tighten down in collet


Get a new collet and nut the 1/2" collet is crappy, it is too thin and pushes out of the nut easily.

You may also make sure that the collet did not seperate from the nut. remove the nut completely and if the collet is not attached, remove the collet from the spindle, insert inthe nut and then insert the bit through the collet while holding it and then put the hole thing back on the spindle (mtor shaft) and tighten it.

How does one change from one collet size to another size. My Freud router came with the 1/2" collet installed and I need to change to the 1/4" size supplied with the router to fit a bit I want to use....


I just did this on my black and decker router. You need to unscrew the nut that holds the collet and remove it altogether. Then slip out the collet in there and replace it with the new size. Take care to notice how it goes in when you take the old one out. Then rescrew the nut that holds it in place and tighten. My router had three collets and only one of them works for each size, so if it doesn't tighten properly, it may be the wrong size. Good luck.

I have had a similar problem with my hitachi m 12 v. I ground the end of a long flat piece of metal so that it would fit around the collet. Mine had sort of a lip on it that the home made tool would fit under. the thing I made was shaped like an  open end wrench. I had to grind it down so it would be thin enough to fit under the lip and just fit around the collet. Then I hit it with a small hammer. a few times on each side of the collet. I kept going from one side to the other until the collet popped out.
