Need a 1/4 inch collet for a craftsman 315269210 router

According to Sears website the part number for this collet is 300618002. when I put those numbers into the google search bar, I get 1/4 inch collet for ryobe, milwalke and ridig. Does thie mean if I purchase the ryobe one, it will fit my craftsman? Sears wants $45 for it, but ryobe wants $15 (if i recall correctly). I do have a 1/2 inch collet for the same router, do they sell a 1/4 inch insert that can be used with the 1/2 inch collet

Pssssssttt ( ya wanna know a secret?) When you buy a product from Sears, they make nothing. They have things made to their specs by other manufacturers. So what are the odds you searched a part number and came up with the exact same item made by somebody else? More interesting - Ryobi started as a die cast business in 1943 and Milwaukee has been around since 1924. Do you think they might make parts for each other or did Ryobi ( Japanese Co who has a manufacturing facility in China) make a cheaper part that uses the same number on purpose? I think you might be pretty safe with the cheaper part. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

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.

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.

How do i change the bit on router?


On my older Sears router there is a lever on the base near the collet nut that you slide to engage the motor shaft to lock the motor shaft for bit changes. On newer models you may have a button or different mechanism to lock the shaft. After the shaft is locked you can use a small wrench to loosen the collet nut, usually by turning it counter-clockwise (viewed from the base). Once the nut is loose the bit should slide out (sometimes the bit is stuck in the collet and the nut may need to come all the way off to get them apart). Just replace the bit with a new bit with the same shaft diameter, tighten the nut, and you are set. If the new bit has a different shaft diameter than the old bit you may need to change the collet also (in general, different collets are used with different bit shaft diameters).

Ive got a kenzo router and the router bits do not fit . ive got quarter inche cutters and when the collet is done up tight the cuters are still not tight. its not a half inch router as ive measured it. any...


Your router bits must have a 6mm shaft, whereas your router with the collet closes down on a 1/4" or 6.4mm shaft. You will need to get a metric collet for your router spindle, or get a new set of 1/4" bits

Need router for table sears 25479 what new routers fit this table


Hi there. You will find that all of the non-plunging routers will fit. I recommend that you buy the most powerful one you can find for the money you want to spend and one that has a 1/2 inch collet, or ideally both 1/2 and 1/4 inch collets. Enjoy your new router.
