Default Bosch Colt Plunge Base

I have purchased a plunge base for my Bosch Colt Router. The plunge action is stiff and Jerky. I haven't attempted yet to adjust the plunge action.

How can I correct this problem with a minimum of risk of creating greater problems?

Hey Ben,

Until I get 10 posts I'm not a real member and can't use the PM service to invite you up to see the shop. email me and we'll make an arrangement.

My big Bosh Routers do the same. A good cleaning and a bit of light oil usually fixes them.

+1 on using it for a little while. I have one of the Colt Bases too, and mine works well after a little break-in period.

Ben, now that you have had the Colt plunge base for a couple weeks is it working ok?
