Topic tags/keywords: router accessories collet

I am looking for a router collet extension as I am having some problems getting some of my bits high enough through my table, especially with the quarter inch bits. The only review on lumberjocks was 1-1/2 years ago for a quick change bit ( I would like one that will fit both half inch and quarter inch bits. The only one I found so far is the Router Technologies EX 2080 Xtreme Xtension Professional Router Bit/Collet Extension. Any suggestions or reviews would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have too thick of a top. Have you thought about fastening the router to a square piece of lexan and cutting out the table and adding a lip for the lexan to sit flush on?
