Yes, it comes with screws to mount to router table. Suggest the purchase of Bosch #RA 1165 Undertable Router Base. See page 21 of Operating Instructions.

Does this come with the T-handle for above the table height adjustment? The description on Home Depot doesn't say.

Customer Reviews

12 Amp Corded Electronic 2.25 Horse Power Variable Speed Fixed-Base Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 155.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice router I was in the market for a router that could handle 1/2 inch bits and the Bosch fit the bill. I've always been partial to Bosch power tools so the decision to buy the 1617EVS was a no brainer. I'm currently using it with the Bosch 1181 router table which I purchase shortly after buying the router. The two pair up nicely...very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a second one of these to use outside... I bought a second one of these to use outside of my router table so I don’t have to keep moving the motor back and forth. I have been very happy with the Bosch router. Adjustable speed is great to have and the power of this motor will easily route even your toughest wood.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Can't Keep them Running I have a small CNC machine that requires me to purchase these routers.They are fine machines while they run, but all too soon, the on-off switch has died quickly on all of the 5 of them I have purchased. This part is obviously defective in design or materials or both.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great router until the lower bearing failed I bought the router 6 years ago and used it for several projects with great results. When the lower bearing failed I found the service almost impossible to find and when I did find it the parts were not available. I guess invented for life ends when the tool dies.

Great router that is mounted in a table for use with large Infinity Mega flush pattern bits. Has the power to muscle through 2x4 lumber without issue. Purchased a separate base to leave mounted in the table so it can be used as a hand-held as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Features make use esy I bought this unit to replace another brand and found the adjustments very easy to make. The downside, no template for mounting on a router table. Lack of a template caused an undue delay in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked great Bought it when my Craftsman pro cullit died and I couldn't buy a replacement. I think its a much better router.
