    I am unable to remove router bit from 1/2" collette on the above router. It is stuck. I have tried gently but firmly to prize it out with with pliers. Do not wish to ruin the bit.

    Any advice on this would be appreciated.

    As BA says the nut is loosened then after about two turns you will feel it going tight again, keep undoing it with the spanner and the collet will pop loose.

    That is provided you put it in the correct way to start with. The collet should click into the nut, you then put the nut loosely onto the spindle, insetr the bit and tighten the nut while holding the spindle lock in. If you don't do it correctly it will damage the nut, collet and even the spindle :cry:

    Many thanks for the correct way of removing the bit. There was no mention of the second click position in the instruction booklet that I could see.

    Thanks once again .
