Question Bosch 1615EVS switch problems

I use the 1615EVS in a table but I have trouble with dust getting into the switch. So far I have been able to disassemble the switch and clean it. However this is a pain. Does anyone know of a sealed switch or have any suggestion on how to correct this problem?

call Bosch tech support...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I remember a few years ago some forum members contacting Bosch CS about that problem and Bosch sent them a redesigned switch at no cost. I can't remember which model it was but that may not matter.

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.

About two years ago I had the same problem which was intermittent. I called Bosch and they sent a replacement switch at no charge and the problem was cured.
