How do you remove the Jacobs "hand-tite" 1/4 inch collet from an 1845-02 router?

Don't know about from your Skil router, but with my B&D/Elu model, you just keep turning the collet counterclockwise until it threads completely off. If your bit is stuck, from that point you can tap it out and clean out the collet.

I'm not sure but maybe this exploded parts diagram will give you some clues as to how it is held in place.
