Please read the precise bits website on the Bosch router. Dewalt 611 is a better choice.

Here's another 1/4"--1/8" collet adapter option:

Brass, 13/16" length.

The big improvement is that it has four slits, not the single slit of the MLCS adapter I'm currently using.

I read somewhere on one of these threads that PreciseBits sold a 1/8" collet for the Dewalt 611, but looking at their site all I see are 1/4" and 3/16". Am I looking in the right place?

We are currently out of stock on the 1/8". We should have more through QC soon but I don't have a solid date right now.
