I went to change the collet on my router last night and there is a screw in the bottom of it that threads in to the shaft of the router. The damn screw head is stripped and I don't know how to get it out. Of course it is my 1/4" collet and most of my bits are 1/2". Any ideas?
Remember it may have LH threads also.
Yeah it has left hand threads. I managed to get it out last night. I think that I am going to pull the screw out of it and see if the collet will work with out it. I ended up putting a screw driver on it and tapping it lightly with the hammer and twisting it at the same time. The next option was the throw the damn thing away.
