12 Amp 2-1/4 HP Peak Corded Variable Speed Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit with Hard Case is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 300.

It worked great at cutting the hole in a birch butcherblock counter for an undermount sink. The plunge kit worked great for allowing me to route out small amounts per pass; the motor is powerful enough to cut hardwood like butter (with a good straight cut bit.) It's a well made tool that I'd recommend to anyone needing to do this kind of work.

Although I have not used this Bosch router in all the ways possible, I love it! The smooth action and no lag during walnut edging is excellent. There is very little if any end chipping, all has been because of user error. I had a Ryobi router and in comparison to the Ryobi, Bosch router is way above in quality and workmanship. Plus I only paid $179.99 on sale. Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big step up for me I bought this after my older other brand died. I needed a router that day and have been very happy that this model was available in the store. Was attracted to the 2 separate bases, used the fixed base at first. I would definitely buy it again, but hope that I don't have to. Lots of power, easy to change bits, easy trigger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really, really nice router I've only owned this router for a few days but I am very impressed. The startup is way smoother than any of my other routers and the power is impressive. Build quality seems good though the plunge release is fairly abrupt...I've ended up slamming the bit into my work piece MANY times already when trying to set the depth to "0". I've learned to do setup over a scrap piece (and NOT my table saw bed) as the release goes almost instantly from "on" to "off". Only other things on my wishlist so far are an indicator for center point and easier bit changes. With regard to the second it would be nice to have either tool-less or one-wrench bit changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use nice features First of all I just bought this kit and have only used it a few times but so far I love it. My purpose for buying another router was I wanted a plunge router for making inlays and signs. I looked at reviews on line and the Bosch stood above most. The only negative compairasen that I could really find was the weight was typically a little more but I thought I would give it a try anyway. The first time I used it was with the plunge base which was very easy to control, maybe because of the extra weight or the smooth action in the plunger. The wooden handles are verycomfortable and felt very little vibration when using. The price on the combo kit was also a big plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Reliable, Dependable I used this router for over 8 years. While working in construction as a finish carpenter, I saw and borrowed several different routers. For me, NOTHING compared to this router. There wasn't a job that i did that it couldn't handle. I had multiple jobs that i used it for from simple rounding over the edge to full out raised panels. When it came to flutting, and i did a lot of it, this router is the easiest to hold and manage. After doing several 8ft columns and two mantels with a few custom flutted cased windows and doors, at the end of the day, i was still able to grip it again for those last minute detail work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-around great tool. The fit and finish are great, the bases swap out easily and without tools. Changing bits with two wrenches is reliable, and swapping collets is simple. The fixed base is comfortable, the plunge base is logically situated. I cannot stress how great this package is (especially for the price tag), but I can use this machine in any routing capacity I can think of in my shop. I use the plunge base for perfect circles, and the fixed base for pattern and edgework. Very pleased with the durability and ergonomics.
