clutions Ok guys ... we'll give it a shot. The truth is I just never thought about it. I just figured that was something I'd have to live with. I take if from Mike's post that it was a trial and error thing. Not that I have a REAL problem with that (it's so minor in the grand scheme of things) I thought (first error) that someone might come up with something I hadn't thought of.

Thanks again for all the response.

Francis; Bosch's Customer Service, and product support, is second to none. That's from personal experience...and I had no issues with uh, accents/comprehension. Just sayin...
(The tech I spoke with was extremely knowledgeable.)

Another route (see what I did there? ) might be to stop by the lumber yard or wherever the Bosch reps are doing a demo...I think the Bosch website has a calendar of appearances.

clutions Mike > I understand that ... short of spending hundreds of dollars on a router-lift with a DRO I thought there might be something I was doing wrong. I've talked to other folks with the same problem and get the same the same answer. Fortunately I'm in no real hurry when I'm working on a project, but it's a bit frustrating to have to make multiple adjustments for a 1/16 of an inch or so. ... and at 71+ I don't want to spend all my time making adjustments ... LOL

Thanks for the response though.

Mike Francis, the way to make your final height adjustment with all brands of table mounted routers is to do it while moving the bit up. If you go too far lower it and try again until you get it right. This ensures proper support when the clamp is released; your bit should never drop.

Stick486 why haven't you called Bosch customer service???

clutions Don't know why I've missed this forum for so long. Have enjoyed browsing it for the last couple of days. Anyway this is kind of base related but more of an adjustment issue. Whenever you need to make a fine adjustment you need to un-clamp the motor. After making the fine adjustment and re-clamping the motor it shifts the adjustment a wee bit (I know, high tech lingo) which means I have to keep checking it after clamping and possibly re-adjusting multiple times. I've lived with this for years but it seems there are some folks here that may be able to help. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Francis
