That’d be great, thanks!
All ready update the file look for it on projects on easel, cut you own on hdpe or any material you like, let me know if you have any problems i may can cut one for you an send it to you
Is there a way I can contact you? I’d like to have you make me a mount if possible? Let me know if you can make one for me?
Send me your email ! yes i may can help you.

Has anyone tried to convert one of these Makitas to an ER Collet, is that something you could do? I just ordered one of these and I’m starting to look into the accessories! Down the rabbit hole I go!
I am just using some rather expensive reducers, made in Germany, works great.
I just ordered a reducer (very inexpensive), but it seems like it would be simple enough to convert it over the an ER collet system. I’ve been searching for what the actual thread specification is on the stock collet nut, but unfortunate found nothing.
Did you try this company. May have Makita collets as well.
Yup I saw that further up in this thread. I’m still curious about an attempt to convert over to an ER collet which is a more industry standard and readily available collet system.
Does anyone know what the thread specification is on the Makita?
Something none standard by the look of it.
My thread gauge says it’s a 1mm pitch and measured across the threads, it’s 16.87. Too big for 16 and too small for 18, both of which should be 1.5mm pitch.
I wasn’t able to measure the cone angle but it’s steeper than an ER collet.
Thanks! Maybe some sort of adapter can be created. I guess I’ll have to wait until mine gets in!
Looking into this a bit more, those measurements make me think that the threads are a M17x1. Does .13mm sound like an alright tolerance?
When I said none standard, I was referring to nuts and bolts rather than something that’s been machined.
An M17 should be a 1.5mm pitch.
Of course if you’re machining your own threads, then you can use whatever diameter/pitch you want.
It would be nice if routers came standard with ER collets though.
Oh OK, I’m just starting to get versed in the metric thread system so I had too look into some details! I did find the a fine thread M17 does have a pitch of 1mm though, so that’s kind of nice!
I’ve done a quick mock up of a adapter, but I think I’ll start a separate thread to start discussing that! I’ll look into get some fabricated and if anyone else has interest and they aren’t crazy expensive, maybe I’ll start selling them!
I think I can make that dream come true, well the guys at precisebits.com can! HERE you go!
Sorry about that, I must have mis-read the precise bit site, I thought it was a conversion kit!
The handy chart I have for metric threads only lists the most common sizes/pitches. A search did turn up the M17 1mm option so perhaps not as none standard as I said.
What sort of adaptor were you thinking of? The precisesbits link doesn’t show support for Makita at all.
Precisebits don’t carry anything for the Makita, I had also emailed them at one point and they had mentioned that there were no plans to develop anything yet.
I’ve moved the discussion of the Makita conversion to HERE.
So, I found that the Makita could use an airflow diverter like the DeWalt. Anyone do this already?
