Continuing the conversation about an ER collet conversion from the thread below:
I started looking at converting a Makita RT0700CX3 over to the ER collet system. I’m in Canada so the RT0700CX3 is what is available to me, but from what I’ve found out the RT0701 is identical.
I haven’t received my Makita yet, but I thought while I’m waiting I’d start looking into accessories and upgrades. I know you can buy an assortment of aftermarket collets HERE, but I thought it would be neat to attempt to convert it over to a more industry stanard system that’s a little more readily available, plus shipping from Elaire to me is about $20CAD!!
Anyways here is a what I’ve come up with so far!
I decided to use the ER16 collet since it looked like the smallest size that would work, not to say one couldn’t use a ER20, but that seemed a bit excessive!
I’m going to look at getting one of these fabricated, hopefully it’s not crazy expensive!!
