Thumbs up Bosch Rules!

I've been having a problem with a new Bosch circ. saw (6 months old...under warranty).
The issue had to do with the sole plate not being perpendicular to the blade or not making a true 45.
Bosch has been outstanding in getting it fixed. The service centre just called to tell me that they've tried two replacement bases without being able to correct the defect. Bosch says they're just going to replace the saw for me!

yes they do...
at some point in time that saw was dropped - hard... DAMHIKT...
Bosch CS has always been in a league all their own...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

I don't think so, Stick. The original box was in perfect shape and the saw did that right out of the box. The techs are mystified.
In any case, I loves Bosch!

Yup if I could do it again I'd go with Bosch routers . If things don't go well I'll be jumping ship and trying them

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I am also a Bosch fan. So far every Bosch tool has performed perfectly right out of the box, but I know their customer service has a great reputation among this group.

I love my Bosch tools. Whenever I need to buy/replace a handheld power tool, I always look at the Bosch first. Currently I have two 1617 routers, and a 12V Lithium Ion Drill. I am looking at eventually get their 18V Drill kit.

My only Bosch tools are a saber saw and the Colt router. But they are such fine tools I kick myself for not buying Bosch before.
It's good to know that their CS is as top notch as their tools.
