Default oiling fine adjuster on Bosch MRC 23(GOF 1600ce)

Hi
may I ask if anyone has oiled the fine adjuster on the above plunge base router?


The local Bosch people here in Australia will not tell how this is done.

Oil or grease and wood dust are a bad combination Pete. I would something that dries without any stickiness. Same goes if you lube the plunge tubes.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Maybe you can describe what's going on...? why Bosch won't help...?

In any event, this diagram indicates a top screw and 3/4 screws hold it all together in the plunge base and different arrangement for the fixed...pick your poison...you can also see some c-clips in the mix...

Are you having problems with it...? Why do you think it needs "oiling" ?

Others will jump in for sure...

...and welcome to the forum...

Hello and welcome to the router forum.
Dust is us Usually the problem tooth brush and air and clean the adjustment screws maybe a little dry lubricant and wipe that down you will not need much

Welcome, Peter. I hope someone suggests a specific dry lubricant, because I need to know this, too.

It seems I never finish what I

Product called "TriFlow" with PTFE...2 oz bottle should last a while. Doesn't need much to lubricate...as has been said to me "when you think it isn't enough, it's already too much"
