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!
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.
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.
