Default Need source for Bosch 1617 plunge sub base

Looking for a new plunge sub base for my 1617. Apparently the material these are made from is very brittle in the cold winter temps we're having as my shop is not heated. This material reminds me of the bakelite they used for pick guards on old fender guitars. Had a little hang up sliding my router along a jig I use to radius stock and the sub base cracked and is now in two pieces. I can not find the sub base on ebay or google. Tried several Bosch sites as well. I find others but not the one I need. Any help would be greatly appciated. Thank you

It shouldn't be very hard to make one. I'd use 1/4" lexan and then it wouldn't break again.

Making a new one sounds like a great suggestion, but what Stick said; it just shouldn't have broken. They're phenolic aren't they?
Like Phil points out, Acrylic or Poly-carbonate are probably better choices re the temperature(?)...

Thanks for the replies. Finally located one on replacementparts.com $15 plus shipping.
May eventually make one but wanted to go ahead and get mine back together asap. The ebay link takes me to all the listed plunge bases but no sub bases on there that I can find. Thanks again, always good to come here for advise

Too bad it's acrylic. Polycarbonate/Lexan would be longer lasting. Though, to be fair, acrylic is probably a big step up from what ever the original base was made of.

You are right-on Quillman.



I have had Pat Warner sub bases for years and they are Top Quality.
