CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 137 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by router works great It has been years since i have used a router for any of my projects. I use to use an old craftsman router and it worked ok but this one is so much better. I have not even come close to using it for everything that it is capable of but i am sure it will do whatever you want it to. It is the smothest and quietest router I have used. If you are looking for one I would definetly recommend this one. December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a professional grade tool with enough HP (2.25). I have performed several routing tasks with it, and the additional accessories (router guide and bushings) with beautiful results. I have five other (non-Bosch) routers with only 1HP ratings. All my work with it so far has been hand routing with both the plunger and fixed bases, so I am going to add a special router table for it soon. Since it will accept both 1/4" and 1/2" bits, I can use the dozens of 1/4" bits that I have been using with my other routers. May 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic purchase I am a novice, and have tried to borrow my brothers router for small jobs. With the realization that I needed a tool of my own, I purchased the Bosch combo with fixed base and plunge base. Tool radiates quality right out of the box. Seems to be sturdy built before you plug it in. Then when you do... Feel the power. This tool makes me want to use the router, and not dread a project that I know I'll need to use it. Ive since found other ways to use it for more finished looks and better fits than before. Don't settle for a cheap tool if you want quality results. I liked this purchase so much, it sold me on a Bosch Jigsaw as well. Top notch in my opinion. April 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with the product I am happy with the product, especially the ability to adjust the bit height from above the router table. I have not used the plunge router accessory yet, but it appears to be better made than the one I had previously (a bargain brand). I would have given it 5 stars, except that it is lacking one feature that would make it better. A spindle lock is really handy when you have the router attached to a table. That way, you only need one wrench to change bits. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value This router kit represents a great value to the woodworker. The interchangeable bases allow the user to accomplish most any routing necessary. The "soft" start is nice as it is a very powerful router and this feature allows the user to maintain control while shuffling from switching the unit on and beginning to work the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use This is the first router I have ever used. It is light enough to make handling it very managable. So far I have used it on 3/4" finish plywood. It cut like butter. The bit adjustment is very easy. I am buying a Rockler universal router base to attach to it to make a larger base for stability. (but it works just fine without it) June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosch router kit 1617EVSPK, plunge & fixed base, great combination. Bosch quality and power with versatility too. Router can be used as fixed base, mounted to router table, or install router motor in the plunge base, all switch with relative ease. Note: To use threaded template guides you must additionally purchase Bosch #RA1126 quick change template guide adapter which attaches to router base plate, and #RA1100 threaded template guide adapter which clicks into quick change adapter.
