Does the Precision Collet Set allow for easier removing/tightening of bit?

Thinking about purchasing this, but only for the reason if it helps to minimize the possibly of ‘moving’ the router from it’s position during changing of bits. Does anyone have experience with this?

In my experience, yes. The precision collet has a simpler and lock-on type tool for tightening versus a regular wrench. Then again, when I use 1/4" bits, I’ve not had much issue with losing X/Y position (precision collet is just for 1/8" bits).

I have also had no issues, bit comes off very easily once collet is loosened.

Pike, have you activated the torque locking? It shouldn’t move if the $1 and dip switches are set properly…
