Basically I've got a bog standard router like below:
What I want to do is insert a cutter into the router but the shaft is only 3mm and the collet on the router is alot bigger.
Can anyone tell me if I can get a sleeve to adapt it and if so where from. The like of screwfix and B&Q dont seem to do them.
I think 3mm is 1/8" but I'm sure some one will correct me if I'm wrong
so you need 1/8 to 1/4" collet
That looks to be the same as B&Q's Performance Power range of routers.
Trend do make collect sleeve's, but I ended up using my friends mini metal lathe an make my own collect's."If first you don't succeed, redefine success"
Edit: Looks like I videoed it, see here...
(There's various ways you can type it and it will convert pretty much anything, for instance:
Considering the runout on those routers saying 3mm is 1/8" is not far off!
