QuickRout for Bosch 1617?

I noticed that Sears has some Eliminator-style quick-change router collet attachments they call QuickRout. They have a 1/2-inch one for Porter Cable routers (no surprise) but they also have two more 1/2-inch ones - one of them is for "older" craftsman routers and one of them is for "newer" craftsman routers. I also noticed, very interestingly, that they have an exact look-alike of the Bosch 1617 router in their Sears Professional range. (search for "1617-12" on sears.com). Therefore I hypothesized that one of these QuickRout things would fit that router.
Well, I tried asking Sears which one would fit, and I seem to have thrown them into a tizzy - one guys said any one would fit, and another felt none would fit.
Any guesses or experiences? Does Bosch have anything special about its collet?
I also noticed that Eagle-America has the Eliminator chuck for Porter Cable AND Bosch listed on its site though the latter is not in stock while no other site seems to talk about Eliminator chucks for anything other than PC. Any clues about why this is so? Does any quick-change chuck actually exist for Bosch 1617 - intentionally or unintentionally !?

Can't answer your question except that my Bosch 1617 will not fit a Craftsman table that supposed fits all Craftsman routers. If they changed the baseplate and the mounting holes, they might have changed the collets also.
Though it beats the heck out of me why they would do this; who would buy a Craftsman over a Bosch?

Ah, hmm, but... Good point, but I bought it for $70 and sold it on eBay for $80.

Only $80? I hope you charged $30 or so for S&H.

I charged actual shipping and $5 for handling. It took me an hour to pack it up, so I didn't make a whole lot there,
