8mm collet for 110 volt router?


eurgo

Recommended Posts

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!

Mine is 1/4" and 3/8", I don't know why it wouldn't but I'll be honest, having a chucked bit going a few thousand rpms, I would be really sure. Typically the 110s used SAE sized bits as opposed to metric so it's probably acceptable buuuuuuut......Maybe call Makita customer service, they'll know for certain. 

 

Also, welcome to the forums.

Thanks ChrisK. I have called Makita CS, but they were not sure if the 110 version and the 220 version were built to different specifications. Not sure if I am allowed to share links on this forum, but I was looking at the below part for use with my router: https://www.ebay.com/i/192235505944?chn=ps&dispItem=1

Looks like Elaire makes these custom. I found the article here...

Also, normally we get wary of new guys posting links but you seem like a swell guy ? Hope this helps by the way!

ChrisK, the collets from Elaire look perfect. Thank you very much for pointing me in their direction! I have been searching everywhere for the last few days, amazing that you were able to find them so quickly.

 No worries bro! Glad to help.
