Can anyone tell me where I can get a 1/4' to 1/8" collet adapter for my router? I have a Dewalt 2 1/4 hp model DW618. The quick change adapter by Porter-Cable sounds good but I'm not sure if it will fit the Dewalt.
I would like to find a precision collet of some kind. I have read that the die grinder adapters have way to much TIR and will break a small bit. I haven't had much luck in seaching the web in locating a good quality piece. There is reference to one on the " PreciseCut" web site but the link is no good.
Thanks'
Chuck

I'm looking for something along these lines:
er11 collet (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=57026&item=3831002397&rd=1&ssPageName=WD1V)
or this:

The pic is the one I want but I can't locate a seller.
The one on ebay will work but it would have to be cut down

This is probably what you need. It's likely where the machine came from and so they just didn't tell you you need this to use 1/8 inch bits.

or the dual split, which looks more feasible.

as long as this is dug up from the dead, maritool sells a straight shank tool holder

no experience but i'm guessing someone here has used it.
