Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent Router, Plunge Base Has Some Slop I bought this router to replace my 1617 router (which is a workhorse) which I mounted in a table. Instead of fussing with removing and reinstalling the router for handheld use, I opted to buy the new MR23 router which came with a plunge base. The router itself is very nice, but the plunge base has some side to side wobble, which seems to rock back and forth on the side which has the spring (the side opposite of the depth stop). I bought the fixed base so I can use this router for edging applications since it is nice and solid. All in all, I like the router and the trigger being in the handle, but the slop in the plunge base is unacceptable. I think the 1617 definitely had a much better built plunge base. I'm not sure if Bosch makes a power adapter so the MR23 router can be used in a router lift (I use a Jessem) due to the unique power terminals, if they do, I would seriously consider switching the routers out so I can use the solid 1617 plunge router and mount the MR23 in the table. Some of the other routers of this same model I have played with in stores either do not have the same wobble, or it is not as bad. October 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight for me! I have a chronic illness and can not lift heavy things. When I saw a demonstration at the Woodworking Show, I loved it. It is not as heavy as the other routers that are out there. Just so you know, I am a woman that love building stuff with wood. It is a great product. This one was the first time I have ever use a router. July 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Quality multipurpose uses!! Router is very easy to use and is a great fit for a person looking for versatility within one unit. It is a solid unit so keep that in mind when using it the first couple of times, it takes a bit to get used as far as the weight but is definitely a good thing. October 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple, durable and easy to use I have been using this router for about 1 month. It's great for an average woodworking doing household pieces and furniture. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great router combo, A+ I purchase this combo 2 years ago. I am very happy with the performance, ease of use and overall quality of this product. July 25, 2014
