            This is a fantastic and very versatile router with plunge base. The design seems to have focused on making every little aspect of either the router, the fixed or the plunge base very controlled and precise. The handles are wide and comfortable for prolonged work, and variable speed is has enough spread between 8-25k rpm to work with range of wood from soft to hard woods. I needed the router type that can work with both 1/4 and 1/2 collet without having to buy an adapter. At 14 amp (1700 Watts) motor and top RPMs it leaves nice, clean, razor-sharp edges and cuts even on the hardest types of wood. It is definitely worth buying a router table with it, as it expands the functionality of the tool tremendously. I loved every aspect of the tool, the built quality is superb, with high level of precision and materials used. https://youtu.be/WQbvR5Ztr44

              I was shopping for a router, found the Bosch and decided it was the one. Then Home Depot suggested this to go with it. They hit it on the head! I'm doing a lot of rabbets and dados on furniture projects and I wanted cleaner more precise cut than my dados on my table saw was giving me. With this addition on my router I'm able to dial in depths perfect and repeatable. So far mostly rabbets, from 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch and this device made it so much easier than trying to haul around a side of a bookcase to the table saw. If you are planning on doing any router work off of a router table, you can use this, in fact I would go as far as suggesting you need this. Just because sometime it does make more sense to bring the tool to the project than to bring the project to the tool.

              My last router was just not doing the job I needed it to do and one of my projects on "the list" is a home made router table. So buying a new router became a mission for me. Besides reading tons of reviews, watched many YouTube videos, I also went to the woodworkers group I belong to. I was expecting a wide range of suggestions of which is better, in fact I was expecting suggestions for the very high end ones. Out of about 25 responses, 24 suggested this router and the one who didn't suggested one in the $1000 range, but also said this router was a good router too, a high praise for this guy. When we received our router, I went through the manual, then my wife and I went into the shop and went to work with it, We are working on making furniture that needed precise dados and rabbets. This router did them faultlessly! Can handle both 1/4 and 1/2 bits, comes with a fixed and plunge base and more than enough power to do the job! You looking for a router, look no more, you have found it!

              Wonderful Router, easy to learn how to use
              Very first router i've purchased, but learned how to use it very quickly. Only thing, it didn't come with the 1/4" collet like it said it should, but i contact Bosch and they sent it to me. Great customer service is worth the extra money spent on the tool.

              Great router set!
              I received this router set primarily for using with a circle-cutting jig so the plunge base was a must have. I knew once I owned it that I would use it for much more. I researched, read reviews and talked with a few wood-workers that I know. All recommended the Bosch or Porter Cable routers for general use. I ended up with Bosch because quite frankly, I love the wooden handles on the fixed base. Yeah, I'm that guy. The soft-start feature helps keep the router from torquing when you switch it on and the optional dust collection kit is really well done. Especially for the plunge base. I'm more than pleased with this set and after borrowing mine, my finicky brother ordered the same set of routers. I may have been equally pleased with the Porter Cable or a few other notable brands but this Bosch set feels good in my hands, functions really well with the depth controls and adjustments intuitive and easy to operate. The router also feels solidly built and mills away wood without straining, and changing bases is very easy. Two complaints that I read on various sites were the switch becoming fouled with dust and the handles being slippery, loosening or just being difficult to hold on to. The switch issue was addressed by the factory some time ago and with regard to the handles, mine have not loosened up and more importantly they feel great in my hands and I feel that I have great control of the tool because they are so comfortable. I realize this is personal preference so take it with a grain of salt.

              Easy to set up and work!
              Have only used this product for straight edge work; have yet to try radial cuts. This router guide is simple and quick to set up and start working. Place two rods into port on base (fixed or plunge), move to desired distance, and screw two wingnut-like screws by hand to hold distance. You can then move the router in either direction with ease. I didn't notice any skipping or bouncing. This edge worked very well with Bosch 1617EVSPK plunge router (see image) up to about 8-12" in from edge. You could likely build your own edge guide for less $$, but this is the answer if looking for a quick and easy solution!

              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)
