I will be happy to assist you. We no longer offer the 1/4 inch dovetail bit. That bit is used for thinner stock than most crafters use. If you want the 1/4 inch bit you can order them from a specialty wood working site. The link below will take you to one site. As for the 1/2 inch bit you can use any 1/2 inch dovetail bit. The dovetail bit kit we sell is a good value. The stock number for that kit is 26354. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

Router bits are slipping out of router collet while working. How can I prevent this? If necessary, can I purchase a replacement collet?

A:

Thank you for your question the router bit slipping in the collet.

This can be dangerous so you want to make sure is it secured.

Remove the collet nut and the router bit.

Examine the shank of the bit for any dirt or lubricant or galling or grooving on the shank.

If you find any you will need to use some very fine sanding foam pad to smooth and clean the shank.

Then examine the collet nut for any grooves on the inside of the nut. Also look at the mating surface on the shank of the motor for any dirt, rust or wear. If you find any debris, please clean the collet on the shank of the motor.

When installing the bit into the collet and nut do not allow it to bottom out in the collet.

When the collet tightens the collet flutes around the shank of the router bit, it draws the bit down a little as it grips the bit.

You should not have to burst a blood vessel when tightening the collet nut to hold the bit.

If after all this it still is slipping I would first replace the nut and if that does not cure the problem then I would consider replacing the router because the collet is part of the router motor shaft on this model.

Please let me know what you discover and please use safe power tool practices so as not to get injured with a flying router bit.
