That router was routinely the “best value” in large plunge router tool comparisons in the early 90’s. I had 2, one permanently mounted in a table and the other for hand held use when I needed that much machine. With the table mounted one I did a lot of raised panels and it never wimpered. It eventually got put in a Woodpecker’s Plunge lift and i though that was the cat’s meow. I replaced it about 3 years ago when I got a used PRL and fitted it with a Milwaukee motor. The table Freud and lift I sold. The second one I still have as the big dog hand held. Those only came with the 1/2” collet and a 1/4” split ring adapter. I bought a 1/4” collet for mine as well a 3/8” one, and it was a certain Dewalt collet that worked. Freud sold me a couple of extra collet nuts to make it a quick change from one to the other.
