  1. Hello, I am trying to find out if my Makita RT0701c router (110volt) will be able to fit an 8mm collet. I know that the 220v version of the same machine will fit a 6mm and an 8mm, but I am not sure if the 110v version is built to different specifications. Thanks for any help you are able to offer!
  2. Shouldn't a die grinder with a 1/4" collet be able to grip 6mm bits? Gee whiz, the difference in diameter is only 0.014. Yet only the Dynabrade grinder advertises that it can take both (and I can't use that because it's pneumatic, not electric). I have an old 2nd hand DeWalt 887 with a pretty worn collet. I got out in the field today and ran into a wall because it wouldn't grip a 6mm bit. Surprised. I don't know whether it's because the collet is shot or that it never could even when new.
  3. I'm kind of new to the "tool world" and BRAND NEW to the "living-with-your-lady world". What's more common - Metric or SAE? Or does it depend on what type of job you're doing? I'm looking to buy a Deep Socket Set, usually for driving lag screws and what-nots for woodworking projects, and a Socket Wrench Set, mostly for automotive.
