Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bosch 1617 Router This is an excellent router for general woodworking if you do not need a plunge router.This machine has plenty of power for most jobs you will do.The variable speed control is critical on a general purpose router and this one works great.They also make a plunge base for this machine which makes it outstanding,although it's a bit balky changing over to the plunge base ( hangs up,hard to slide at times).This is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. This machine also has a soft start feature which will keep it from twisting out of your hands when you turn it on. July 21, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Still going strong I have had this router for almost 5 yrs. and it has been in a router table most of that time.I have made everything from small moldings to raised panels using 3 1/2 " bits and a router speed control,This router has never let me down in anything I have tried to do with it.The power is there if and when you need it.Using it for cutting dovetails with a jig the wood handles on the base are comfortable and provide excellent control over the router.I would buy one again if I were to need a new one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great little tool Just used this handy little router on the gunwales of a wooden boat. I was able to freehand two different radius curves on a 3/4 x 1 1/4" edge, something that would be tough to do with a larger router and time consuming by hand. It paid for itself in one job. In my applications, a variable speed on this small router is not necessary, but the soft start is really appreciated. September 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to beat for use, effectiveness, and value. Have owned for about a year and thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed. Very comfortable and controllable. All this adds up to a very useful tool. Only regret is they either did not have or offer the plunge base when I bought. Looks like I need to break down and purchase this. October 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always gets the job done The Bosch 1617 fixed-base router ALWAYS gets the job done. Set the collet and it stays. Wooden handles are comfortable and well placed. Unit is very durable. June 16, 2011
