Different size collets for Dewalt 611 router

Has anyone tried to find collets that work with different shank diameter bits. I have ordered bits that turn
out to have shanks other that 1/8" or 1/4" diameters. I thought I could simply find collets that would fit
the 611 router, but that has not be the case. Any options out there?


they come in 1/4, 1/8, 3/16 and 3.00 mm sizes.

this is the same as the precise 1/8 collet that inventables sales but with the two other sizes.

Thanks for your response. Not exactly what I hoped for, but good to know for future reference. I know what

to look for now when ordering bits. Save me time having to return bits because I have no collets to fit…thanks again.

I have collets from elaire in 1/8", 4mm and 6mm sizes. They are great and give you several choices for bit sizes.

Thanks, I will check this link out.

That would be great. Find bits I would like to try and the additional collets would provide versatility. Thanks…
