Default Getting started

Just a note to say hello and introduce myself. Also, a quick question, I bought a "D" handle for my Bosch 1617 router but, as you know, Bosch prides itself on providing long electric cords on their products. I plan to shorten the router cord but am unsure what purpose is for the large black appendage that Bosch has attached to the cord just before it's end. Any ideas?

Hello Bill , Hope you like and enjoy the router forums make yourself at Home. Please participate by asking and answering questions, that is what makes this forum work!
Again welcome.
I believe what you're talking about is for security so you can't steal it out of the store you can remove that doesn't mean anything I assume you are talking about the 2 inch long black clip thing on the cord ( chip inside so you cannot get it out of the store)

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

I assume it is a ferrite choke to cut down on RFI but that is only my best guess & 2 cents worth for free.
