Reducing collet [½” to ¼”]
Purchase a Gifkins reducing collet to adapt your router from ½” drive to ¼” drive. The reducing collet is a handy piece of box making equipment. It will help you get the most out of your template and box making cutters.
Shaft sizes of the Gifkins cutters:
- Template cutters have ¼” shafts [H10, B10, F5 and F15]. The exception is the B10 template cutters which have ½” shafts.
- Our box making cutters have ½” shafts. The exception is the spiral cutter [TRSW5] which has ¼” drive.
The Gifkins reducing collet will fit most routers. It has features that are a great improvement on other reducing collets:
- 32mm [1 ¼” ] long body,
- eight slots offset around the body, to ensure a more secure hold on the cutter, and
- a flange around the top of the collet.
The flange ensures that [a] the collet won’t drop down inside the router chuck, making it easier to remove it from the router, and [b] that the cutter is held at the optimum height.
