I picked up a display model of the Ryobi Plunger Router RRT1600-s on clearance from Bunnings and now that I've gone to use it I have found that there is not collet in place. The nut is there but no collet (particularly the 12.7mm collet). Are there generic collets that work? Having diffculty finding one.

Thank you so much for your patience. The good news is that the collet for the RTR400-S is available. I was a bit confused as your other post was referring to the RTR440 and realized that this was not the correct model. The part number for the collet is #039823001022. It is in stock and can be ordered at the special orders desk.
