After a year and a half of table use, I broke the collet locking pin
on my PC 890 router. Probably didn't engage it fully or used a bit
too much muscle tightening a 1/4" shank bit at one time or another.
I've ordered another pin and have it in hand.
Problem is, replacing the pin requires removing a threaded retainer
that has no visible means of applying any torque to unscrew it. It is
just flush with the housing and there are no holes or slots to use a
Has anyone got any suggestions or has run into this before? The parts
list/blowup is located at
http://media.ptg-online.com/20050113080243_8901.pdf . The pin is part
#21 and the retainer screw is part #23.
