Bosch 1618 collet

Nut-Collet Crossection
Based on the  ER Spring-Collet / Nut architecture, the Think & Tinker family of precision collets and nuts was designed to bring the precision  and flexibility of expensive high frequency spindles to low-cost, consumer and professional grade routers.

The snap-together design and eccentric extraction ring prevents collets from sticking or binding in the tapered spindle bore. Tool removal is consistently easy.

The internal bore of each collet is preloaded to lightly grip the shank of a bit when it is inserted, preventing tools from falling out or shifting while the nut is being tightened.  Please read Working with ER Nuts and Collets.

NOTE: These collets MUST be used with BOPG-1618-NUTs and SPANNERS!
They will NOT work with the nuts and spanners that are supplied with your router.
