Will my 1/4" collet work with metric bits?

it’s not a good idea, possibly causing other damage.

Which router do you have? You can get metric collets.

I have a 6mm V-bit that I tried to use in my 1/4" collet and it slipped giving uneven depth in my project. I can get 6mm collets for my Kress router, but mostly I have been more careful to make sure my bits are 1/4"
