This is an update to let people know what happened the original post is here:
I just broke out my new bosch router with plunge router base. It of course comes with 1/2 and 1/4 inch collets. Bits fit fine in the half inch but my 1/4 inch won’t fit at all. Even a 1/4” drill won’t fit in it. Anyone ever have that issue? I called Bosch and they’re going to send out a new one. The collet looks fine just a tad to narrow. I tried expanding it with a tapered punch but no luck.
The second collet was also too small. I was beginning to wonder if it was me or my router bits. I had split the first one with a pin punch and the inside split cleanly and allowed me to insert and work with a router bit.
BTW…. Bosch was gracious and kept sending them out.. kudos to them. And the plunge/fixed router with the attachments kit has been a dream to use after hanging up my 1970’s era craftsman router.
