Several of the reviews refer to this being the greatest router, which calls into question the validity of the reviews since this is just a router table, correct?
Asked by: Holmes
Thank you for your question. That is correct! This is not the router motor itself but it is the Router Table which model number is RA1181.For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Can a trim router go in the plunge base

Can a trim router go in the plunge base
Asked by: Cooper
No. The trim router is going to be smaller and won't have the same guide tracks to set it into the base.

15 Amp. Corded 27 in. x 18 in. Aluminum Top Benchtop Router Table with 2-1/2 in. Vacuum Hose Port is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 444.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product I just bought the table today and have a few comments. Commpared to the Ryobi Tables this one is far superior. The Feather boards are sterdy and strong. The plastic base looks cheap but is very stiff. My opinion having a large base to mount to a table beats the four point sheetmetal legs. Took me 1hr to assemble and I consider myself to be very mechanial, just a lot of hardware. Router plate is very strong and takes a few minutes to level up. The on off switch is small but in a beter location than the Ryobi. A very clever design. The Brush steel top is very corse and has alot of mass. The fense is made of an anodize extruded aluminum that is far superior to the Ryobi. It comes with a side comparment that stores all the extra hardware and most accesories. I would recommend this for the woodworker that wants something better than the a cheap "good value, good enough" version and the $900 Rockler "Superduper, do it all, digial, I want to be Norm Abram" version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My last router was just not doing the job I needed it to do and one of my projects on "the list"... 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this router table with excitement however a only 2-3 months later noticed the router plate... Bought this router table with excitement however a only 2-3 months later noticed the router plate was sagged at the center. I was also using their 1617EVS router. The miter slot is NOT really a miter slot in the normal sense and only their featherboards are designed to work. I had a Kreg featherboard that i used on my table saw and tried but it doesnt work. The slot is too wide. Furthermore, whats even worse their non-existent customer servie (Bosch that is). Called them and emailed them. First representative didnt know much and forwarded me to a technical advisor. Well almost 3 weeks later since initial email im still waiting. This being my first customer service request with Bosch well I doubt I will ever buy any of their products. Sad to say I really like some of their products but with no customer service their products are all but useless to me.

Old to woodworking, new to routersWas debating between this combo set and the Dewalt combo set, ended up taking this one because the Dewalt adjustment ring you need for the fixed base, needs to be removed for the plunge base, but the Bosch is built in, as well as more micro adjustability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit in Ridgid R4512 The router table fit with minimal adaptation into the extension of my Ridgid R4512. The table is about 1/16" narrower than the fence rails so I placed a 5/16" washer on each bolt on the rear rail. Holes needed to be drilled on the long edge to match the extension wing and, if you want it to face to the right correctly, a 1" spacer board between the wing and router table. Otherwise, it fits perfectly reversed if you are only going to use the saw's fence with it. Lighter weight than the Bench Dog top, level, well machined and well priced for what it is. One downside was that my Kreg router plate (and most others) won't fit as this has it's own size mounting plate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most! For the price it certainly has a lot of features and durability. Lets start with the strengths: -Table size is nice and large. -Jointing function works well. -Fence is solid. -Dust extraction is very decent. -Plug in for shop vac on table -Feather boards and guard is nice. (Do not have to unscrew guard all the way to release) Weaknesses: -Plastic inserts will break over time when swapping out. -Getting the base plate level with the table takes a long time -Have heard that some tables come warped (mine was fine). -Must remove router to switch out bits. (this is common with all but the more expensive tables and/or lifts) -No quick removal of fence. Have to unscrew all the way :( -The riser/pads that sit between the guards and fence on the screw or between the feather boards and screw always cause a balancing act so they line up right and don't fall out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the price. I've had this router table for about a month now, and I would say that it is a decent general purpose router talbel that is adequate for non-critical woodworking. There are a couple of issues with this router table, however. The first is that some of the locking knobs don't tighten down very well, as on the fence and the feather boards. There were a couple of times when routing a board, the fence would move a little bit on me. The feather boards also need constant tightening when running boards through. The other issue I have with this table is that the cast aluminum table top is not perfectly flat. There is a "hump" in the exact middle of the table, which presents a problem in some critical work like cabinet door making. For most other general purpose woodworking, this router table is fine for the price I paid for it. Plus is is very portable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great router table, mostly I purchased this table along with the 1617EVSPK router package, and the RA1165 Table Base. The base was a little confusing to install, but I got it figured out by following the base instructions carefully. There are strange issues with the table, though. The first is the base plate: there is a hole ground so close to the collet opening as to actually create a depression in the hole; it may not cause any issues, but seems odd in that it does not match any pictures in the manual. Second, the spacers for the featherboards are huge, nothing like the ones for the guard or as shown in the manual; they flopped around until I tightened them on the fence, and requires that I not loosen the featherboard too much or risk having them fall down. Finally, the front left of the table at the miter slot is quite roughly finished, even though the top is smooth; this seems to be a quality control issue. I thought about purchasing the older cabinet version, and time will tell whether I decide that I made the right decision.
