Question Bosch GOF1600CE/ MR23EVSK plunge base

Hi
may i ask if anyone else has had trouble with the above plunge base having play in the motor carriage even when the base is locked down on the stop turret with the plunge lock lever fully pushed in towards the motor? If so may i ask what is the cause of this? I am beginning to really appreciate the combination of power and weight offered by this router and have a fixed base as well.
regards
Peteroo

Is it possible the locking latch is not holding the motor securely in the housing...?

Either the bushing(s) in the body around the plunge tube must not be a very good fit if you can wobble it like that or what Nick said.

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.

does it flex on/at the columns at the base slide/mounts or where the motor mounts in the base???
are the column rods solidly in place where the mount to the foot of the base???
