OK I’m new to this whole world. The router bit spindle is way smaller than what the dewault router will hold. Is there an adapter or a different collar to purchase? I’m ready to cut once I figure this out!
Yes you need a collet for the size bit you are using. Inventables sells one for the 1/8” diameter bits. Here is a quick video on the topic
If you got the router from Inventables, they include an 1/8” adapter for the collet. It should be in the packaging somewhere, off the top of my head I can’t remember which package it was in.
It works, but I would recomend buy a dedicated collet such as the Alair or the Precise Bits collet. Inventable]s sells the Precise bits one.
I have both, and prefer the Precise bits one. Just personal preference.
Don’t use the adapter. Buy the right collet for the bit you’re using.
thanks guys! I stopped at home depot today and was able to get a 1/8" collet. Didnt even know it had a name! Hope to be cutting by the end of the week.
