How does this make sense? Am I missing something? I swear, between Makitas impossible to use website (for figuring out accessories among other should be simple tasks) and Bosch not having simple to find info on (this is pretty specific, but I almost lost the plot that day) guide rod bolt thread..

(Blanket party is a term used for assault and battery)
