Tool Parts at Ohio Power Tool

Our Bosch miter saw took a spill off the back of the truck the other week and the impact busted the handle up pretty nicely. Usually for this sort of thing we go to toolpartsdirect, but we had just read at CopTool (the blog arm of the tool retailer Ohio Power Tool), that OPT also sells tool parts. We thought we'd give them a shot and contacted them with the part numbers, made the order, and in no time, they were on their way to our place. The service was extremely fast and within hours of our original inquiry, we were contacted with pricing and shipping info. As it turns out, toolpartsdirect doesn't even carry the parts we needed.

Once the parts arrived, the repair took about a half an hour. We got lucky that the only damaged parts were the plastic casing and that nothing too complicated needed replacing. Our advice if you do anything like this is to take pictures and draw diagrams as you disassemble the broken parts. No matter how good you think your memory is, you're going to forget where some screw goes or which direction a spring sits or some little detail that's essential.
