1/4" bit in AEG MF 1400 KE Router?


#1

Hi!
I bought a AEG MF 1400 KE router as recommended for EU. It was delivered with a 12mm collet and a 8mm collet.
Does anyone know where to get a 1/4" collet in Germany? Or is there an adapter?

Best regards,
Wolfgang

This is from https://www.fine-tools.com/oberfraese.html
6 mm collet not available for this router.
1/4 inch collet for this router is no longer available :frowning:
A quick search on Giggle did not give other matches.
Viel Glueck! (Good luck)
For my Bosch I could buy metric and imperial from amazon(as)

PS: reducers (reduzierhuelsen) are not recommended for long term use.

You will be looking for something like this


8mm shaft / 6mm cutter
Although I do not recommend this brand!

Check dictum(dot)com. It takes some searching, but you can find bits with 8mm shaft and ~ pehaps down to 4mm cut diameter.

You will be ok with a 6mm bit with an 8mm shank. It’s close enough, provided the cutting depth is sufficient to pass through the material you are cutting. The Ground Control software will allow you to specify the appropriate diameter.

While this link won’t be the best for Europe you can use a 12mm to 1/4" sleeve. Giggle one for your area
