    I thought that it had disappeared off the list too but it’s still on there. It’s between the title of the routers section and where all the routers are listed. Looks like it just got bumped out of place.

    I dropped an email today for the 1617 combo router kit. The cordless drill I redeemed for is on back order, so now I have 2 packages of goodies to look forward to getting. Looking forward to doing an unboxing video.

    I’m sure you’ll like the router kit Jim. It’s a very solid tool, I’ve really enjoyed mine. It has been up for any task that I’ve put it to.

    I keep changing my mind. Originally I was thinking a cordless drill/impact combo set. Then I thought about the worm drive saw. Now I’m eying the 8 1/2″ miter saw.

    Considering that the one it is replacing is an 80’s era single speed Craftsman with 1/4″ collet I have very little doubt. The bar is not very high for routers in my shop at the present time.

    Michael you need to stop looking at the list. I was on track for an item and got sidetracked and I was only 25K away. 🙂

    From all the reading Iv’e done on here about the 1617 router, It sure is a popular redemption. Congrats.

    I think it’s on my list also.

    The 8 1/2″ miter saw is a really nice tool. I bought one this past fall and love it. I’m contemplating selling my 12″ SCMS because I like the 8 1/2″ so much and don’t want to haul the big one around anymore.

    I’m saving for some l-boxxes but I haven’t decided for sure yet which ones. I definitely need an L2 for my new PB180 and maybe an L3 for my recip saw but beyond that I’m not sure.

    I hope Bosch will do something for you especially since it is still well within warranty. That really sucks especially since the saw isn’t very old.

    Why not go the E-replacements and get some new parts??

    Ive seen what can happen to formerly stressed aluminum. I dont trust even the parts that look ok.

    Besides, the parts that are busted would add up to a good percentage of the cost of a new one. Safer to replace

    If I knew what happened, I would be more (or less) inclined to trust another 1031. As it stands, I would be a bit handshy around one.

    How about upgrading to a full cabinet saw? I have a hybrid one right now that i really like using.

    ereplacement parts is a good site but if you need small parts the shipping is gonna be a killer for the price tag fora small item… 4 years ago i needed a couple small pcs for my bosch 4212L mitre saw.. the parts were less than $5 but i paid like $40 for shipping… shipping to canada is hte kiler

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I would definitely love to save for a Reaxx. But with a $1300 price tag, I think that is too rich for the rewards list.

    Doesn’t sound do-able. Shame would be a positive addition to have around.

    Is it actually selling for that price or is $1300 the MSRP or something like that. The pre sale price of the 12v jigsaw was Way higher than what they are selling it for now, that why I’m asking.
