About This Product

The Bosch MRC23EVSK 2.3 HP Electronic Modular Router System is an advanced set-up that provides a fixed base and a plunge base for the MR23EVS router. This system allows for outstanding operator control, with the trigger-control system that has a power switch in both the plunge-base's and the fixed-base's handle. The plunge base's Afterlock microfine bit-depth adjustment at any plunge setting allows for precision, with an adjustable turret stop makes it easy to set any cumulative depth. With a smooth plunge action and a spring-lock plunge lever, this router gets accurate results. The fixed base has microfine bit-depth adjustment, with a continuous depth range of 1-5/8 in., allowing for accurate and fast changes, while its precision-centering design allows the bit to be centered with the sub-base or optional template guides. The router has a 15 Amp motor and adjustable speed settings. The variable-speed dial allows the operator to match the speed to the material. Constant Response circuitry delivers a constant speed throughout the cut. Users can glide along the intended cutline using dovetail fixtures, templates, jigs and other guidance devices.

      Answer This Question

      A:  "Hi there! With regard to your question. Bosch routers like 1617 or MR23EVS are both one powerful. It's your application that will vary. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST. "

      by|Nov 22, 2022

        A:  I opted for the MR23EVS because it’s a 15 amp motor vs 12 amp motor on the 1671.

          Q:the answer from bosch says this mr will work with the 1181 router table, but when you look at the operating instruction for the table, that model is not listed and the message is to get an bosch adapter plate. Which is it??
          by|Jun 30, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Hi there! Yes, the MR23EVS router is compatible with Ra1181, you just need to use the fixed base to mount it under the router table. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

          by|Jun 30, 2022

            A:  The only problem I had was that one or two of the mounting screws were too long and they bottomed out before they were tight. A quick trip to HD fixed the problem. I mounted the plunge router base to my table.

                Bosch…. 15 Amp Corded Variable Speed combination Plunge and Fixed Base Router Kit with Hard Case, I’ve had this router for a couple of months now and I love it, This Router is loaded with features and is top notch, it more than met my expectations, It is absolutely a pleasure to use this router, what I like best is the trigger control built right into the handle, the variable speed control is easy to use and is very helpful, The LED is very bright and lights up the entire work area, it comes with two collets ¼ in and ½ in, Both the fixed base and the plunger are easy to use, the 2.3 Hp motor provides plenty of power and the soft start makes the job a little easier, the swivel cord is 10 ft long and the Router can be mounted to a table This Bosch Router is a Great product.

                Soft Start is a stand out feature from my past experience and the whole router is smooth and accurate. I really like the weight as I thought it might be on the heavy side, definitely worth upgrading to this model. I've only had it for a little over a week and building a router table and cabinet with a flip open top for easy bit changes and adjustments. More than I expected, this is so smooth in its operation, I know I'll use the router more and more now that I have this one.

                Use it to cut tenons for bread board ends for a custom table I am making. So far so good, I have only used the plung attachment because I have a fixed router in the router table. The variable speed is great for different types of hardwood or soft pine. Also like the fact it has 1/4" and 1/2" collets. I use 1/2 bit for several applications

                COMPLETELY DEFECTIVE
                I’ve purchased 3 of these routers in the past 3 months. EVERY SINGLE ONE has failed within an hour of starting to use them. I’ll be doing some light routing (no more than 1/8” cuts), then the router will simply shut off. If I unplug it then plug it back in, the LED lights turn on. When I pull the trigger, I’ll hear a click a second later, but the motor won’t run at all. Very rarely, it might run for a second before shutting itself off again. My uneducated guess is the overload sensor (which is mentioned in the user manual) is defective. Once it stops working, the router is a glorified paperweight. It doesn’t matter how long you let it rest unplugged, it’ll never work again. Switching bases does nothing (so the problem isn’t with the trigger switch). It’s astonishing to me that Bosch continues to sell these obviously defective routers. Looking at the other reviewers here, it seems I’m not alone. Note: between power tools and kitchen appliances, I own more than a dozen Bosch products. So I have a lot of experience with well-designed and reliable Bosch products. This router is neither.

                  DOES IT ALL !
                  Works great in a router table and also easy to handle, hand held. Good dust collection, it is quiet and well balanced. Grips and trigger are comfortable. Very smooth plunge action. It is also quiet.

                    Bosch MRP23EVS router
                    I bought it 2016. When I bought it I also purchased 4 years warranty. Since I am not a professional woodworker it has been used not more than 10 times. Today I needed it to make some decorative trim and it worked for 3 pieces and than it stopped. I have light but motor starts one time when I connect it runs for 2 seconds and stops, light is on all the time. I have tried plunger base but problem is the same. I would not buy this again. After little research on google I realized that a lot of people have the same problem. I think that Bosch should reimburse all the customers that have this problem or fix it for free regardless of the warranty because it is clear that this is bad engineering.
