Default CPO Bosch

Well, the VS Bosch Colt came in yesterday, two days shipping from GA to DE.

But there was no nut or collet in the case

Called customer service, said it could take " Up to a week to ship"........

Hopefully their QC will improve for 2010...........I'll let you know.............T

Hi Tripp - Sorry to hear about your issue with CPO. I've got about half a dozen tools from them and they are good about fixing issues, some just take a bit longer than others but they get'er done.
I don't think they carry parts so if something is missing or needs replaced it gets outsourced and direct shipped. I got a little Ryobi grinder from them awhile back and the screw hole to mount the safety shield over the right wheel was stripped out. Needed the entire wheel cover replaced.
They replaced it from some outfit in Columbus, OH. My last semi-functioning brain cell can't recall the name of the outfit but it was the same one I had previously ordered a power switch for my Ryobi table saw from. Just took one e-mail complaint from me.

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

Hell, everybody makes mistakes, but after reading all the reviews, and finding such a great deal, I just shook my head.

Only have a couple 1/4" bits, so I guess it gives me time to get some more before the collet arives.......... Anyone have any experience with these?

They look pretty trick......possible overkill if used by hand and not in a CNC machine???

Well a week later, and the collet and nut showed up.
Not too happy about a week turn around time for a problem, but I guess everyone is trying to cut corners.....Looking forward to the test drive tonight

Did a couple of cross grain cuts on plywood at 1/4" depth.

All I can say is smooth.......new bits helped too, but I'm hoping it gets better with experience.

Don't really like how you can't zero the router to the scale in the base easily, but I guess thats what a Starrett combination square is for!!!!!
