Picked up an old Porter Cable 5182 3 hp router this weekend with only a 1/4” collet and need a 1/2 collet for it.
Checked out a dozen sites and EBay but struck out.
Please let me know if you have something or know a supplier with a secret stash.
Thanks for thinking about it.

They (ereplacement parts) show it as the collet being discontinued, but then show the collet and nut assembly being available for $18. The pic seems to show it as the common PC collet/nut assembly…I thought it was more unique for that router.

PS that link doesn’t seem to work, try this: https://www.ereplacementparts.com/collet-assembly-p-72830.html

Sorry that’s not the one, there’s no nut and the collet has external threads and screws into the shaft of the router . It’s a one piece deal. I will try to load a picture.

Then yours must be the one they show as discontinued. I thought that might be the case.
This one: https://www.ereplacementparts.com/12-collet-p-112796.html?osCsid=gmjpjsebrdq96jcbdiibh8ke92
I searched the part number (698800) and couldn’t find it anywhere.

No luck, router is just sitting gathering dust. It’s to big to use with a 1/4” bit. I have several others that are much lighter and do the 1/4” bit work well.

Same here, just sitting now. I had it mounted in a router table and it worked great with 1/4” and light duty, but then I wanted to make raised panel doors and the bits were 1/2 , so I had to get new motor….doors turned out great.

Try Elarie Collets. If anyone has one , they will.

They make you one too, but I doubt it’s worth the expense.

Have you heard of The Eliminator Chuck? it is touted to fit all PC (except 800)... if it does fit, it’s a single tool (hex key above table) bit change. Email the vendor (Joe Marmo, I think) for confirmation.

Eliminator, Muscle, ect…chucks won’t fit a PC5182 router. It has an odd collet design by today’s standards.

I checked with Elaire when this question came up…they don’t appear to have one for that model.

Yeah, it’s going be one somebody finds in a drawer or burns up their old router.
From searching it appears some old heavy Black and Decker routers had the same collet. If you scroll to the top of the thread there’s a picture and description.
It’s a shame as it’s such a powerful router and runs perfectly , I had hoped to make a bench router out of it.

That’s why I prefaced the suggestion with “if anyone” has one.

They will make you (or anyone else) whatever you desire as long as you’re willing to pay. Which, still makes them a viable suggestion.

Have your say...
