    Cheap Quick change router collet?

    I saw this after looking at various quick change router collets.

    http://www.amazon.com/Skil-1845-02-H.../dp/B0000302RA

    Unfortunately its unavailable this side of water. Has anyone used it?

    Hi Bigz1,

    Never heard of this quick change collet before sounds interesting; I would like to have a close up to see how it works or a description form some one who has one.
    I am at the moment buying up cheap Kress routers so I can leave the cutter in each one and just quick change the spindle instead. Will look into a tool changer in the future but for now it works fine for lighter work with the 900W Kress routers.

    If you are referring to the tool changer yes I have. Down side to the system is the fact that it is limited to 10 000 rpm and I need the speed (I like speed ). Thanks for the time pointing it out though.

    It would be OK with my present feedrate at a MAX of 100" per min. But if I eventually double the speed going 3 flute on the cutters would get round the RPM problem(if it is a problem?).

    I have cutting speeds at present of 6m/min on my X axis and will be upgrading my Y to keep up very soon so for me 10 000rpm just would not be quick enough.
