Answer: 
Hi Franne. The collet is machined to precision tolerances to fit bits with 1/2 in. diameter shanks but you can use bits with 1/4 in. diameter shanks by inserting a 1/4 in. adapter into the 1/2 in. collet. Hope this helps!

I know the Bosch model has been discontinued, but would the faceplate be similar and could it be mounted to the ryobi router table?

Answer: 
DISREGARD this question. I have a RYOBI RE180PL, and a Bosch router table. Both of which I purchased years ago and have never had the room to use until now. I got the two products mixed up. Thanks for taking the time to try to answer my question anyway.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the diy'ers and beginning wood workers. (Video included) I've never owned a router, but they always seemed like a great tool to have around the house for not only installation of door hinges and lock, but for larger jobs like cabinet building and molding. I was not sure if I wanted a plunge or fixed base router, and I was not willing to spend $400 for two different name brand styles. I seen this a noticed that it had the best 3st of both worlds for a smaller price, so I decided to give it a shot. At first, I was worried that 8 would not be able to figure it out, but within 20 minutes, I felt like a pro using this. It was extremely easy to use, and all the adjustments were easy to make. The router is actually very powerful, and the speed can be adjusted from high to low for different types of wood. As for the router bits, it takes 1/2' and also has an adapter for 1/4' which makes this router very versatile. They give you a wrench, and makes but changes very fast and easy. It's also comfortable in the hands but does feel a bit bulky. the plunge action is very smooth, but like some others had mentioned, the locking mechanism does get a bit lose after using it for a while. There is however a screw that can be tightened in the back that will help snug it up. All in all, I have used this to cut holes in bi-metal doors, signed and some molding, and I am extremely happy with it. Once I get my skills sharpened, I will probably spend more for a more professional router, but until then, I'm happy with this. September 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!1 I was working on a project that required production level use notching 4x4's for a handrail. I have one little BOSCH fixed base, I bought one of of these Ryobi plunge base models and borrowed an older model Rockwell fixed base. Of the three, I loved the RYOBI! The BOSCH was a little too light for the work, and the Rockwell scared the heck out of me because it was too hard to control. So I went back and bought another RYOBI RE180PLG1! I was using templates for most of the work and the RYOBI worked beautifully! It was smooth, easy to control, and the adjustment features made it a breeze to cut to the perfect depth every time. I've read some bad reviews here, but I have no complaints. You must use the appropriate speed setting for the bit otherwise you get some vibration and chattering. I did notice that one of the two units seemed a bit more "torquey" than the other, but I have not one complaint. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable and very precise tool Couldntaskformorewhenitcometothecleancut I get with this tool October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Value for money Great value for money! Only thing to note is that if you intend to use it with a table, the handles are not removable. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice machine 4 a very nice price. Very versatile A router that is both extraordinarily capable and very easy to control. With the variable speed feature and the 2 hp motor, one can easily dial in the ideal speed for the bit and material at hand and not run out of power when the going gets tough. 1/2in and 1/4in bit shank adaptability is also a great feature. Easy high and low stop adjustments for plunge work, etc. Have done some real work with it, and must say I'm impressed. June 26, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool. This is my first router, and it works great. It did exactly what I needed. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad. Bought this 1/2 inch collet router at half price in the clearance section and then ordered adapters through Sears online for using my collection of 1/4 inch router bits. Why? I need a plunge router from time to time and this seemed a good way to get one and save a little money to boot. May 17, 2016
