Questions & Answers

Does this electronic VS router utilize a soft start? Thank you

Asked by: Kayaker
Yes
Answered by: TDavis
Date published: 2016-11-04

Is a 0.25 inch collet included in the package as well as the 0.5 inch?

Asked by: PennsylvaniaJohn
Yes. As an FYI, I had an issue with the 1/2" collet which was already installed in the router. Apparently the factory over-tightened it and as a result, it absolutely would not accept standard 1/2" cutter bits. Point being, be sure to check that you can install cutters into each collet not long after buying it.

Customer Reviews

12 Amp Corded Electronic 2.25 Horse Power Variable Speed Fixed-Base Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Features I have two of these, with one dedicated to the RA1171 Router Table and the other with both fixed and plunge bases. This is a powerful, easily operated router with hex-key height adjustment, ideal for a router table. This feature alone sets it apart from other routers. The only drawback is the choice of screws that mount the router to the base, a cross between straight and Phillips head patterns. I replaced mine with a Phillips head screw. Such a minor complaint shows how flawless the router is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet I bought this router for several reasons, soft start, variable speed, and the height adjustment. I love all of those features and got a bonus its quiet, my old router would wake up the hole neighborhood, not this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic router! I bought this router originally to use in my router table, but found it worked so well in my hands, I ended up buying a second one! Very powerful under load, balanced well too.

I selected this router based on 2016 buyer guides, customer reviews, and personal choice. I have had a few Bosch power tools through the years and I have yet to retire or discard one. It was a choice between this one and a Porter-Cable 2.25 HP fixed base unit which I actually bought and returned because the base for the in-store model would not accept a larger diameter bit I intended to use for my first project. The Bosch fixed base had a larger opening and would accommodate all the bits in a separate bit set I purchased. As a novice router user it was important to have an unobstructed view of my work through the fixed base. It was simple and easy to use, didn't break the bank, and has the versatility to use on a router table that I plan on purchasing. I recommend this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfect I changed out an old Craftsman (30+ yrs) due to bearing issues. I installed the Bosch into the same table using the (3) screw hole pattern. My first use was moulding using a 1-1/2" Ogee. I dialed the speed down to 3, then from the front I unbuckled and easily adjusted to match the old moulding. Buckled up and turned it on. It ran smooth and cut smooth. That is all I ask for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good router Great router for the money especially when you get a fixed base and plunge base with the same unit. Love the variable speed control. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is I would prefer the on/off switch to be on one of the handles rather than the top of the router. A solid 4 stars though. Well done Bosch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second Bosch Router This is actually my second Bosch Router. I built a nice Router Table and use it more than handheld. It was inconvenient to keep changing from Table to handheld, so I bought another Bosch Router so one can remain in the Router Table and the new one can be handheld or use Plunge Base.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't wait to see what all this thing can do! I've only used this on one project so far, but I'm sure I'll use it in some capacity on every project I do in the future. Thus far I've used it for edging. Next I think I'll call upon it for joining, or maybe hogging, or maybe an inlay, or maybe... you get the point.
