The perfect router bit extension and quick release collet
Reviewed by: danupsman
If your looking for a router bit extension collet that will extend your bits and make changing your bits much easier and quicker,then look no further. This is the one! I also have two other router bit collet extenders sold from MLCS . They are to long to use with some bits and are an extreme hassle to use since they do not release the bit easily. On this extender the bit releases with a quick 1/4 to 1/2 turn of an Allen wrench, all above the table.
Mine is chucked into a PC7519 router, mounted in a Jessem Master lift. With this set up, any router bit that doesn't need to fully extent below the table surface will work. If you need a bit to fully extend below the top, then any bit that doesn't exceed 2 1/2" in over all length will work, which covers most common length bits. Finally an extension collet that does what it claims and much more! Definitely worth the cost ! This one stays chucked in my table mounted router.
