    I received my "c" machine this week from Amazon it did not have this upgrade. It does make a difference.

    Did you order the N01 or the CW005 from them?

    Ok now I understand. Amazon got those machines before we discovered it.

    I can confirm the heck out of this!
    I just got a chance to put in the new bolt and washers today. Running full piercing cuts on this months POM, without any kind of equipment to monitor sound, I sense at least a 50% reduction in noise.
    Fantastic!
    Cheers!

    Kept putting it off but finally did this simple fix and was amazed at how much quieter the machine is and it definitely runs smoother with much less vibration. If you have not done this yet you need to do it now.

    I did the upgrade and now my machine is no louder than my dust collector, the out-feed rollers don't continually turn, and the nob only turns instead of spinning; BUT, the bits don't slip in and out of the CT as easily as they did. I takes some tugging. I think the split collet might be a challenge to get out. I put the new screw in with no bit in, then a bit would not go in. I removed thew screw and installed a bit, then installed the screw.

    The split collet does sometimes stick, usually I open the hex screw a little more and it drops.

    Usually all I have to do is move my hand away and the collet will conveniently fall in between the two belts making it harder to retrieve.
    Sometimes I'm just totally underwhelmed!
