      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Bosch Bulldog Drill Problem

Recommended Posts

 

I've been using a Bosch 11213R Bulldog powerdrill without any problems, and then this past Wednesday, over the course of drilling about 1/2 a hole, the thing stopped working.

 

When I first started drilling, the power would come on only when the trigger was depressed half-way (it would shut off if fully depressed). Then, after half a hole, the power ceased completely. The battery was fine - the problem instead seemed to be related to the trigger.

 

If you have had a similar problem, what did you do?

 

The drill must be more than 10 years old (Perhaps over 20 -- I'm borrowing it.)

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

I've used George for the repair of electric and pneumatic tools for over 25 years. I cannot say enough good things about Tool Pro's. He gives great service at a fair price.

Not at all. Best Friends Espresso is about 6 miles from Tool Pro's. Chicka Latte is less than 10 blocks away from Tool Pro's.

 

Sadly, Heather, the chick with the huge knockers from New York, who works the PM shift at Chicka Latte will soon be moving to Thailand for a new job.

 

 

Everyone with a broken tool in Seattle will miss her

Every climber, especially those just starting out who don't have gear racks yet, should own at least 2. They should be issued with the new chalkbags on the 1st day they go climbing. It's nice to have backup battery power anyway.

Thank you for your contribution Don. Back at ya. :poke:

 

....sheese, I get sucked into the Raindawg sideshow too easily. I was trying to resist his troll over here: http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1024250/1 I don't really believe that stuff I wrote about beginners owning 2 drills and all.

 

How did the tool repair work out?

They don't make the switch/trigger anymore, and I haven't had any luck finding a replacement.

 

Perhaps I'll add a simple on/off switch.

i've had some small luck cleaning up the contacts on powertool triggers when a trigger replacement was impractical or impossible. they get rusty and jacked up after a while.. a steel bristle brush or some 200+ grit sandpaper can bring them back to life.
