Customer Questions & Answers

would this router be sufficient for creating tongue and groove boards out of hardwood (specifically pallet boards)?

Asked by: newtorouters
The "Plunge" permits you to do the "Groove" and the tongue can be mastered by setting the Height of the router to the face of the tongue board, to it's desired depth on both faces. Pallet boards MAY be a little rough due its wood nature not to conform to a precise cut with smooth edges.....

12 Amp Corded 3-1/2 in. Variable Speed Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit with Hard Case (12 Accessories) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and easy to use It's a well made router. It performs very well, it's easy to handle, and it has enough power to handle the tougher species of wood. The clear plastic shield can collect dust and make it hard to see sometimes when working freehand, but a coat of good wax every now and then stops that. I bought a 1611 EVS when they first came out on the market many years ago and it works as well today as it did when it was new! I expect the same experience from this one. In other words, I see the same level of quality built into the 1617EVSPK as I did when I bought the 1611EVS.

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 Ease of set-up and adjustment I am currently building an Executive desk for our son which calls for multiple shaker style rail and stile joints on the pedestals. I have the router mounted on the Bosch RA1181 table and with this combination I have had excellent results and a perfect fit every time. I especially like the feature of fine tuning using the through table. Only wish I had purchased this quality set-up years ago.

It has plenty of power, and the RPM adjustment is very useful. I also mounted this to a router table with no issues. The fine tune adjustment with an Allen wrench is helpful. Its slow start is an added benefit too. All grips are comfortable during hand use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Router, easy to learn how to use Very first router i've purchased, but learned how to use it very quickly. Only thing, it didn't come with the 1/4" collet like it said it should, but i contact Bosch and they sent it to me. Great customer service is worth the extra money spent on the tool.

The combination of fixed and plunge make it so that it will do everything one could want a router to do. I especially like the wooden handles. There is something about the wood that appeals to me.

Easy to adjust depths, especially with the plunge base. It is easy to switch from the fixed base to the plunge base. I am still learning how to use it, but I am pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Plunge & Fixed-Base Router Great product. The plunge mount appears to work smoothly, so far, and the fixed-base mount attached easily to my Bosch RA1180 router table. The ordering and delivery process was easy, and I am very pleased with this experience.
