Works great

It enables your router to grab tiny engraving and inlay bits. I use it in my drill press too for chucking in tiny drill bits.

Because it's made of brass, it doesn't hold up; needs to be made of tool steel.

Not as tight a fit as I would like

This collet is very close to a good fit, however it does let the bit slip during any operation such as a light plunge cut. This can be solved with a little ingenuity, but I would prefer closer tolerances to begin with.

1/8th inch collet

This has solved the problem. It fit in my dewalt router and my laminate router. It works perfectly.

Works very well

The adapter collet worked very well for me and I did not see any flaws in its construction. I used it in a DEWALT compact router.

Great Buy!!

I looked everywhere for these! When it arrived, I put it right to work. I am very happy with the results.

Adapter Collet

I have always thought it would be a good idea to be able to use my smaller router bits with a stronger motor. The Dremel is fine for most things but sometimes you just need a little more power. The adapter is just what I was looking for. While it works fine the reason I only give it a FAIR is because I was surprised that the slotting on one side of the collet was far from straight. While this doesn't stop it from working it is poor quality and not up to the usual high standard I have come to expect from StewMac.
