Hi, new to the community here. Currently I am living in Pakistan, I approached the local distributor here for a router and handheld circular saw. The GOF 1600 CE router they had come with a 12mm collet. I was looking for a 12.7mm (1/2 inch collet). I found the part number 2608570108. On the collet page it lists GOF 1600 CE as a compatible machine for this. When I look up the part number on the parts portal, I only see GOF 1200, 1300CE and 1400CE as compatible machines for this. Is there an error somewhere?

On the website https://www.bosch-professional.com/pk/en/products/gks-9-06015A2000 the saw blade bore diameter listed for this circular saw is 25.4mm. When I read the user manual, it was listed as 30mm. The blade max diameter is 235mm I was looking at the EXTRA blades for woodworking, they are compatible with 235mm and 30mm bore circular saws.

For the life of me, I couldn't find a vacuum adapter/dust extraction cover for the place where the chips come out from. I found one for GKS 235 turbo 1619P01627 but nothing for the GKS9.

GKS 235 turbo was the other available circular saw. That has a bore size of 25.4mm, would probably require rings to fit.

Am I going crazy over these minor details? The bits I have are from bitsbits in USA, they are all 1/2 inch size, they don't fit in the 12mm collet. Is there a work around for that? I appreciate any help anyone can offer.
