    Default Cheap Quick change router collet?

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

    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.
