    Hi
    Anyone here using a Bosch Colt 1hp pr20evs ?
    The question I have is what other collets will work with this router?
    It comes standard with a 1/4th inch collet and I'm looking for a 1/8th inch collet.
    I need that to be able to use end mills with an 1/8th inch shaft.

    What are you guys using?

    It's not a collet. Its an adapter. Fits in your (or absolutely ANY) 1/4" collet, then fit the 1/8" endmill inside the adapter

    See video below, from 2min8seconds onward

    They are nice. I have both the metric and the imperial sets for my Makita. Now it would be cheaper to just buy the Router11 and an additional 4 and 7 mm ER11 collet for the same functionality. If only the Router11 was around 6 years ago.

    Except for the part about having to buy a whole system in order to get one...

    The Makita RT0701C. I picked that one several years ago due to its lower rpm range.
