So I am sick of wasting material through using 6mm router bits, but currently can not afford to upgrade to a spindle motor, so my question is, can I use an ER 11 collet and nut or not? sorry if you find that question annoying or "stupid", but I don't know, and am loath to waste money finding out. All constructive answers welcome, trolls and the like, Nah they won't care anyway.

It's not that difficult to find smaller cutters with 6mm shank. Would this help? For example, these (http://www.cncroutershop.com/uk_en/cncrs-single-flute-up-spiral.html)

Cheers neal if all else fails ill give them a go, bit expensive for a ham-fisted numpty like me. I really would like the versatility of an ER chuck but I am probably going to upgrade to get one.
