Routers—mounted in a table or handheld—are incredibly versatile tools for woodworkers. But changing router bits is widely considered an annoying task. On older routers, two wrenches are required to change a bit, and on newer models with collet locks, you will still require a single wrench. Access to the collet nut becomes particularly frustrating when the tool is mounted in a router table.
In recent years however, the “quick change collet” has made bit changes faster and easier than ever. In this video, you can watch how to use a quick change collet, putting an end to all those pesky wrenches.
