Default Bosch 1617 baseplate screw

Bosch 1617 baseplate screw

What kind of bit or tool do you use when you want to remove baseplate ?
Is it possible for you to get in a market ?
Or... you can get it only through Boach ?
I am glad if I could have informations.

Hi Benny. Those look like what we call Torx head screws. Fairly easy to come by over here and Europe I think. You may just try a search on that term. A size T-20 is what I have in my Freud for the baseplate screws. Those look about the same. Next smaller size would be T-15 and next larger common size would be T-25.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Just to add to John's post

Looks like a combo Torx,a strait screw driver blade should work on them also..
just need to use the right blade size..

You can use a straight screw driver, but be careful....it will strip easily....I just purchased an extra base for my Bosch to mount to a second plate, and I almost stripped one, while removing it.....

I went to specialty shop in down-town.
I could get it.
Just fit.
Thank you very much.

I wonder why driver in Home-Centre does not fit.
The reason is the one in Home-Centre is notorious Japan-Made, I guess...

-----
I am too coward to use straight one.

Glad you found one. I admit I was a bit puzzled over your post indicating the one from Home Center didn't work.
Just be careful, those little screws strip out very easily. One of them on one of my Freuds was stripped when I got it. Freud was only using two or three of the threads so I replaced it with the next longer screw. I think they are M4.

Thank you for your advice.
Many tipes of head is the evidence of stripping-failure, isn't it.

I will change base to Jasper's...

I have not known a meaning of "strip".
I can find it at 11th. explanation among(?) 12 expalanations in my Dic.

Thank you.
Yes, I am glad I could get it.

At that time, shop-assistant said "I can not understand why it does not fit".
We did a bad choice, didn't we...

Anyway, I will be careful not to strip.
