    for our safety I wanted to let you guys know…
    I will go in the shop and check out my grinder if that one is affected.

    Thanks for the notice, just checked mine, it’s okay,
    Good thing to do, I think I will visit the Bosch site and check out other recalled items, just in case.

    I don’t have one of those but I sent a message to a buddy that has a bunch of Bosch grinders in his shop, There’s a good chance he has at least one.

    I also called Bosch about how they’re going to handle it, They’ll send you out a shipping label and box to return and repair it for free. Cool!

    Is the recall only on the Slim grinders? Seems like the guts would be fairly similar across the board and others could be effected.

    Look at the Madman post above. But here’s what’s wrong; Potential personal injury due to overheating and melting of the brush
    cover.

    I just send mine in last week after reading the recall they sending me new one Gws8-45 for it I have all my tools registered so they actually send me email but there was delay on sending the shipping labels about 2 weeks they lost it in process so I call them to get the shipping labels. I know this 1380 slim was getting hot quick so I wasn’t using it on heavy applications anyway .I have my 10 years old hilti for abusement and tile cutting etc and bosch cordless grinder I use that on almost everything such a powerfull grinder for battery runs great with 6.0 ah batteries. I’ll let you guys know when I receive the gws8-45

    great that bosch is sending you the newer model instead of repairing the 1380slim or switching it out. looking forward to your thoughts about the new grinder

    nice ozturkebrahem. great that bosch took care of your old grinder and replaced it.
    when you tried it out – let us know if you like it more than the 1380slim
