Bosch 23EVP plunge base issues
I'm on my second Bosch 23EVP (just the router and plunge base) and Im of course having issues with it and it hasn't even been plugged in yet. Im thinking Acmetools.com must have received a bad lot of routers from Bosch that slipped through their quality control. The first one I received had a very noticeable give or slop in the non adjusting side of the plunge base shaft (right shaft). I estimated that with the plunge mechanism locked tight, the right side had about 1/32" - 1/16" give up and down on the shaft. This was of course unacceptable so back it went. Well, I just got my 2nd 23EVP router today and it too has the same problem but not quite as bad. Im guessing it has maybe 1/64" of slop up and down on the right shaft while the left shaft is in the locked position. Here is what I want to try. The right side shaft with the slop does have a cover on top of it held in place by 4 screws. Im half tempted to take the cover off and peak inside the shaft mechanism to see if there is any adjustment inside where I could take out the slop. I really need this router now, but I wont settle for a router that is not going to give me 100% accurate cuts every time. Has anyone experienced this issue? Has anyone taken the cover of their right side non adjusting side shaft to maybe adjust the slop out of their shaft? Just curious if this is even possible.
