I’ve been trying to locate a 1/2 in. collet for a Hitachi M12V that was my brothers. I’ve spent an hour on the interweb looking and all I can come up with is the collet chuck, which appears to be both chuck that threads onto the motor/shaft, and appears to also include a 1/2 inch collet. Thing is, I do not need the chuck, just need the collet. Any idea where to look for just a collet?? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and again Merry Christmas (o:

If you have been a good boy, perhaps Santa will leave a 1/2” collet in your stocking tonight. But if you have been naughty, my recollection of the M 12V is that it employs a 1/2” collect chuck. However it may use a sleeve reducer for 1/4” router bits, although I believe the 1/4” collet chuck was the part included with the router. Even though I was pretty sure, I decided to check the parts diagram and parts list in the manual available on line. I confirmed my recollection at…

Part 60 is listed as a collet chuck in the parts list on page 3 at…

I replaced the M 12V router with the Hitachi M 12V2 router a few years ago, which to my eye is the same router as the M 12V, just a fancier look. The M 12V2 came with 1/2” and 1/4” collet chucks. A 3/8” collet sleeve is available as an optional accessory for the M 12V2.

Thanks JBrow for the links. That’s kind’a what I’ve been finding…collet chucks. Guess that’s what I’ll need to order. Weird that ya can’t just order a collet only for these things.

Thanks again and Merry, Happy, and all that jazz
