    1/8" shaft to 1/4" collet adapter

    Will these work Ok to adapt the 1/8" bits to my router's 1/4" collet for drilling braille holes?
    Thanks

    I was looking up this the other day as well. You basically have three options.

    1. Inserts like you've picked.
    2. Buy what's called a "stubby collet chuck".
    3. Precise Bits sells "special" collets which decrease runout and happen to have a 1/8" collet available.
