Precision collett versus sleeve adapter

Post by jfdotcom » Thu Nov 30, 2017 6:57 pm

What is the difference between the precision collett sold by C3D and using the stock DWP611 collett nut with a quality 1/8" adapter sleeve (such as Amana)?

Thanks!

The precision collet is one part, and should:

- have less runout --- this and the below should also be true comparing the precision collet to the stock one
- have better balance
- have fewer possibilities of problems / difficulties

Many folks use the reducing sleeves w/o problem, while some folks have problems. It's just easier to my mind to get the better collet and be done with it. Precision has to start somewhere.

Does anyone know of a source for a 1/8th colett for the Makita RT0701C 1.25 HP Compact Router?
