    Smile Great Customer Service - Bosch Tools

    I have a Bosch router that is one of the best routers I own, other than the magnesium motor housing grows a grey corrosion that I have used a couple of jars of Mothers Mag & Aluminum polish over the last 12 years to try and clean the corrosion off. If you leave the router motor in the D-Handle base, the corrosion will lock them together and you have to beat them apart. I sent an email to Bosch customer service asking if there was anything I could use on the motor housing to stop the corrosion? I told them I had owned this router for at least 12 years. They said to send it in and they would replace the magnesium motor housing with an updated aluminum motor housing ............ Yeah! I just had a call from them telling me that my bottom bearing was making some noise and my on/off switch was arcing a little ............ and by the way ............ we'll also replace those for free while it's here. This is why you buy the good tools!

    Cool man, one of my best friends just retired as the VP of sales for Bosch. Fantastic company to work for and they take pride in everything they make. Another tidbit...Bosch makes 90% of all jigsaw blades on the market. They just slap another brand name on them.

    They have factories all over Europe. One in particle is up in the Alps, you'd think it was a high end ski resort. They employ everyone in towns around them and give them benefits up the wazoo. However, my friend says they have guys for 30 yrs, been putting the same screw in the same hole. That would drive me insane.

    You use those SDS bits in it ? Least I think that's what they call them....those suck imho. The Bosch hammer/drill is one of the best out there though.

    I have a small Bosch rotary hammer that with a scrapper blade has taken up thousands of sq ft of ceramic tile. My big rotary destruction hammer is a Milwaukee.

    The Bosch hammer drill is a wonderful thing.
