Thanks, Jim. Usually tapping the collet works for me but I've had a few times where I ended up clamping the bit between pieces of scrap wood in my vise and using the wrench to turn the armature back and forth until I could work the bit out of the collet. Even then the collet didn't want to come out till it was tapped. I've tried oil and grease on the outside of the collet but now and then it still sticks.

Even with the problem I love those trimmers way better than any others I've used. They may have fewer features but they're designed better.
