    Default 1/8 collet for the porter cable 890

    Precise bits no longer supports the 890 series and I could really use a 1/8 th collet are there any options out there. I'm a little hesitant to use adapter sleeves. Thanks

    Default MLCS adapterrs

    I have had no problem with these

    I use a bit of Locktite blue on the 1/8 inch bits.
    The decimal point seems to be the most important on the z axis... x & y not so much....

    The collets from PB work fine on that router, call up or email the guy.

    I saw what is written on his site, more of a caveat than anything.

    The issue is that the chuck appears to have changed on newer 890 routers. They don't have enough threads to get more than about a half turn on the nut. If you have an older one it shouldn't be an issue.

    For obvious reasons I will not comment on the other products mentioned as I am biased. Just wanted to clear up any confusion.

    Please let me know if there is anything I can help with.
