When i bought my porter cable 690 router it only came with a 1/4" collet and bushing setup.

I need a 1/2" setup for my dovetail jig and bits.

Trying to find somewhere locally before ordering online.

*Edit*
Didn't even know we had a local porter cable repair center. Called and they have one in stock. Running down now.

I doubt any big box will carry one in stock. Home Depot does carry Porter Cable (Lowes may also I just don't have one anywhere near me) and could probably order you one.

I don't understand this part though:

"I need a 1/2" setup for my dovetail jig and bits."

There is no relationship between the collet size and the dovetail jig that I am aware of unless you are talking about a Leigh jig that recommends 8mm shank bits. Those particular bits are also available in 1/4" shank also from MLCS and other vendors. :smile:
