Default What size wrenches for Bosch 1617

I can't find my wrenches to change bits. I'm not sure if I even got them because i could have put the bit in before mounting it into the Lift with a crescent wrench. Anyway they're nowhere to be found now and I have every wrench to every router I own in one spot except these.
I would also like to find a bent one for working in the lift if I knew the size.

16mm for the shaft..
24mm for the collet nut...
both wrenches are very thin...

if you did not receive your wrenches contact Bosch for replacement...

Thanks Stick, I guess I'm going to call over to Lowe's to see if they have them in stock and run over there tonight if they do. I didn't realize that they were two different sizes and I just can't remember putting in the bit for the first time. This is the first time I've needed to change the bit.

Ya I guess your right Stick, because I can't find a lock to keep the shaft from turning like on the PC. I just don't know what I did with them. Well I guess i look a little harder.

Lowe's doesnít carry them in stock and it will take too long ship.

I found them, I guess I threw them in the Bosch box for some reason. Good thing I didn't toss it yet. I usually hold onto the boxes of things i buy just in case I need to send it back for some reason.

I decided to mark all my router wrenches so I know which is for what and realized that Iím still missing a couple of wrenches. One I know I bought is an offset wrench for my PC 890 and canít find it anyplace. I donít know why it would ever be moved from the table.

I also canít find the wrenches for my old 1/4" Craftsman router that I inherited from my dad. I use it probably more than any of my other routers because itís always ready to go with a 1/2 in straight bit in it. Now that my PC is freed up, Iíll probably use it more.

If you got rid of all the other than Bosch routers you'd create more shelf space and there'd be no wrench confusion!
