Default Dewalt 625 - dust assembly

HI
just got the Dewalt 625 router and started to put together
bit disappointed on the quality - the Fine adjustment guide is very poor

not sure what the number dial is going to do as its all loose - is this normal

The dust extraction has an image showing two of the plastic parts - BUT i have 4 parts
not sure what to do with these 2 - image attached

Also the trend kit was broken with the cutters just loose - so thats being replaced, as I was not sure if any damaged

...not off to a good start then.
"not sure what the number dial is going to do as its all loose - is this normal"
Are you referring to the speed control on the router or the micro adjustment on the edge guide?
My guide is a Bosch and the numbered dial is simply a continuous reference...allows the user to keep track of any adjustments made. Mine is just tight enough to avoid accidentally moving the reference knob; ie not a sloppy fit.

Thanks , Yes on the Edge guide, I have bent out the plastic tabs underneath, and dis-assembled and its a slightly tighter fit , not great
but it does move the fence by 1mm a full turn, according to my vernier, which I also only got today, so getting used to reading that as well, NOT digital , batts are flat and no spares when needed
So the adjustor should be 0.1mm per gradation
anyway, it least as you say , not a sloppy fit, which mine was and still is, so i may play with that a little tomorrow

its quite cheaply made pressed alloy
images attached
moves slightly when tightening the locking screw underneath

If you'll notice on the Bosch guide there's four thumbscrews on the assembly riding on the shafts.
Two grip the shafts, as you make the adjustment, and the other two allow you to make gross adjustments of the whole assembly.
With all four secured nothing can move. Rock solid. I just assumed they were all designed this way?
...apparently not.

On anything with a threaded adjustment the amonut of travel with one full turn of the adjustment knob is equal to the pitch of the thread on the rod. If it's a metric thread of 1mm pitch then 1 turn equal one mm of travel. If it is Imperial and say 3/8 by 16 thread pitch then 1 turn equal 1/16th inch of travel.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

great video , thanks interesting , been looking at a few youtube videos today
The edge guide i have - the part where the two rods fit in , there is a thumb screw underneath that locks that edge guide to the adjustment section
So you have to loosen that OFF , which allows the edge guide to move with the adjuster , i suspect, once i start using it , it will be OK

Nothing in the manual? I hate it when manufacturers just make assumptions.

nope, downloaded a couple of different manuals
there is also a long screw in the package which may be used

the dewalt manuals are pretty poor relying on mostly pictures only
i often used the video unboxing for most of my other dewalt tools - but the dw625e cannot find one

Is there a Customer Service ph. # ...or a chat line?
We have a DeWalt Service Center, in Vancouver, but It'd be day out of my life to take the ferry over there to do a face to face thing. They're pretty decent folks there, but again I'm a Bosch fan.
