I bought a large makita router of the top of my head a 3612 a half inch router which I paID for in full at a local auction when I went to pick it up someone had stolen the router collet and nut can anyone advise me where to buy these relatively reasonambly priced ? I suspect makita is very expensive or does anyone have a defunct router which they could sell me the collet nut and collet for half inch .I know I am far away here in the uk but the shipping/postage should not be expensive surely? Waiting maybe on having a lucky day I had to pay for it nut collet gone/stolen or not.The auctioneers always warn people to take care but then they don’t like you removing things from the sale till they are paid for and well beyond the current list of sales. Alistair ps if I have the makita number wrong I will change it as I am too mfar away from the workshop and I am too tired (morphine ) till tomorrow.

Sorry to tell you, a replacement collet costs $41.80; a nut costs $15.84; all U.S. currency. Check the link below.

That’s those Jocks for you Alistair, thieving gits. Try ebay or powertoolspares.co.uk. Beware of import duty on anything brought from outside EU.

BUMMER… Hope you find the stuff OK…

Try these guys. About as cheap as you’ll get around here Alistair. I have used MTMC for a lot of spare parts and can highly recommend them. I have that same router. You’ll not be dissapointed once you get it going. Hope this helps, Garry

I have just checked, and I have a spare collet and cone sitting doing nothing on a shelf if you want it? It’s not an original makita, but I just tried it on my 3612 and it works perfectly well. PM me your address and I’ll pop it in the post to you for you to try.

Cheers, Garry

You’ll know better next time not to put a router on top of your head because somebody will steal parts off it every time. Nyuk Nyuk

I purchase all my replacement router parts through ‘Whatchama Supply’.... I feel that Whatchama Collets are the best.

Would that be the infamous Whatchama Collet Supply, Poopie?

Topa: Glad somebody was paying attention! Thx! Though I hesitated to tear up alistair’s thread. I did look for a spare collet, I used to have a few. I think he’d get a better price on eBay for the parts he needs.
