Topic tags/keywords: router

The collet from my Freud FT3000 router disappeared into thin air and I am having no luck finding Freud replacement parts online. I guess Bosch bought Freud awhile ago.

Has anyone had luck sourcing replacement parts?

Does anyone know of another brand collet that would work with the FT3000?

If it helps, I think the same collet is used on the FT2000.

OK, here’s what happened. Bosch bought the Freud blade/bit business, not the power tools. At the same time Freud pulled their tools from our market. Apparently, part of the Bosch deal was that they continue to supply parts for the Freud tools already in use. So you can get many parts from Bosch…the number I have is 630-705-7810. If the 30 collet is the same as the 200 collet…the part number for it (2000) used to be 13602.7431…that would be the 1/2” collet. That collet also fits the 1700 router (I have one of those as well) and it lists the 1/4” collet part number as 13602.7435. I’ve ordered parts from Bosch for my 1700, that’s how I tracked this down. Now, there’s another choice. I found this out years ago on one of these forums. The collets used in the Dewalt 625 are the same ones. So if you wanted a 3/8” collet, the part number would be Dewalt DE6275. Here’s what makes this nice to know, there is an aftermarket company called Elaire Corp that makes collets for several of the more popular routers, including the Dewalt 625. In the link, scroll down to the bottom for the 625 stuff. Better yet, they make them in all manner of uncommon sizes, 1/8”, 6mm, and about 10 others.They are also generally a little less expensive than OEM. Yes, I have bought some and they are top notch. Lastly, a pic below of the Freud collet next to the Dewalt collet. Hope this gets you up and running. Oops, should have entioned…the Dewalt collet is on the left, Freud on the right.

Thanks FH... I’ve no interest in a Bosch/Freud collet… no idea why I even read this post…. however, I appreciate a chap that goes out of his way to provide such comprehensive assistance.
