Topic tags/keywords: question

Hi,
i have an Elu router that I bought in Canada about 20 years ago, a great router, going strong.
but I have a problem. Every time I go to change the bit, I must hammer at the collett to change the bit.
i don’t like hammering at the colllett. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Here’s hoping.

all router bits are not created equall.

perhaps compressed air to blow out the collet, or maybe emery paper and sand it by wrapping it around a dowel….........you can unscrew the entire collet and clean it?

I have the same router, about the same age and have not had this problem

Hi roman,
I might try he emery paper, and yes, I can unscrew the entire collet, so I’ll try the compressed air.
Watch this space!
