Will this motor fit a Bosch PR001 fixed base>

Asked by: ARBuilder
Thank you for your question. The 16176 is too large to fit in the PR001 fixed base. The PR001 fixed base is designed for our PR10 and PR20 Colt palm routers. The part number for the fixed base for the 16176 is RA1161.

if i buy the bosch router table is this the router for it?

Asked by: grouchman
Thank you for your question. Yes, the Bosch 16176 router will work with our Bosch router table with the RA1161 fixed base. Or we also offer the 1617EVS router that comes with the motor and fixed base.

Customer Reviews

2.25 HP Electronic Versus Router Motor with 10 ft. Cord is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition to a router kit I recommend this to anyone who wants to simplify router use by not having to remove their Bosch from the table whenever they want to do do free hand work. This is my second Bosch 1617 motor, the first lives in my router table, this one is for free hand use. I already have the fixed and plunge base, so this saves money and effort Bosch gear is near the top on performance, power, fit and finish. I don't understand why the same motor with the short cord (perfect for the table) is more than this one with the long cord, but such are the vicissitudes of tool life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little machine Fit perfectly in my Rockler Router Lift and purrs like a kitten. Have completed the first project and it worked flawlessly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased for my CNC router table This Bosch router is powerful yet quiet. Previously had a Dewalt 2 1/4 HP router it lasted about 2 years on my router table, I will wait to give a five star rating on my recently purchased Bosch 2 1/4 HP 1617 EVS model after I see how long it operates on my table. Require's two wrenches to tighten router bits, so I have to use one of my fingers to hold the router bit from falling and also hold the wrench which holds the router shaft from turning, while I use the other wrench to tighten the Collet nut. But you can also put a wooden block under the router bit to hold it up as well, other than that its a solid product. And I like that it is quieter than th Dewalt router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router! This is a great router, I already owned one that I use in my Shark CNC machine so I purchased another one to use on my router table and as a plunge router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding and prompt service This was a replacement motor for a table router. Works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Router I've had a Bosch 1617 for 13 years, and used it all the time in my router table as well as the plunge base. Now that I have the new soft-start variable speed motor, it will be dedicated to the plunge base. This is a high quality, precision made router system, that should last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I have owned a Bosch Router for several years. About a year and a half ago, I purchase a lifter mechanism for my router table. Only the motor is installed in the lifter. Removing the motor from the lifter is a pain. So I purchased this motor so I could use it with the Bosch router bases I have. If I was not happy with the Boxch router, I would not have bought an additional motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas gift This was a gift for my husband. He loves it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a router.
