- 1/4 in. Collet
- 1/2 in. Collet
- (2) Wrenches
Screwed on the 1/2 in collet and it will not tighten enough for the bit to be held. I can slide the bit in and out of the collet. I used both wrenches and tightened it as much as humanly possible and NOPE, collet will not tighten around the bit.
Tried the 1/4 in collet - Exact same issue.
Waited 10 days for this to arrive and now what do I do??
Also, the depth adjustment ring is VERY difficult to turn.
