Questions & Answers


is there a way to attach the model i bought to this table? see pic

Asked by donut October 11, 2020

Hi there! RA1181 Bosch Router Table is not compatible with palm routers, as they are too small to be mounted on. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

What's the difference between this model and the RA1141 model?

Asked by JSB October 10, 2020

Other than the size, I think the major differences are 1) this model has Aluminum Top so it is more durable while RA1141 has Laminated MDF top. 2) this model has fixed lags while RA1141 has folding legs which is easy to move and store. 3) Easy Click router mount system on RA1141 for quick router and bit change (I don't own this RA1141 model, just base on overview, other pictures and reviews)

Will the Porter-Cable 450pk (

Asked by Jake September 22, 2020

Would this fit an old Porter Cable 5182 router or an old craftsman 1/2 HP router?

Hi there! The RA1181 Router Table woks with Porter Cable model 690, 7529 plunge and 892-895 series fixed base only. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Can the 11amp 2.5 HP Ridgid router be mounted on this table and can you use the routers above table height adjustment tool?

Asked by RoutingNewb August 10, 2020

Routing Newb, Hello and thanks for the great question. Looking through the Owners Manual for this Bosch RA1181 Router Table, viewable at the same Home Depot Web Page as this Router Table, I don't see any mention of Ridgid Brand Routers. I viewed Ridgid Tools' Web Page and the only Router featured is an edge trimmer, a small router. You could always go the route ( no pun intended) of creating or fabricating your own mounting plate to suit your Ridgid Router to this Router Table. If you do so, you could further accommodate your Router by adding the hole by which to make above the Table adjustments. When fabricating a mounting plate, very precise measurements and cutouts are required. Seeing as how the Router you mentioned is not a current model, you might consider a new Bosch Router to go with this Router Table. Home Depot has great Pricing on Bosch Routers. I hope this helps. Sincerely, heatman5

Will an old Black & Decker NO.7614 1 1/2 HP fit this mounting plate? It has a six inch base.

Asked by Doc August 1, 2020

The RA1181 Mounting plate is pre-drilled to accept various brands. However, we have not tested it yet with Black and Decker. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

What is the weight?

Asked by Doc July 31, 2020

Hi! The RA1181 weighs 30.0lbs. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

What is the total dato depth it will cut

Asked by Jeff June 13, 2020

The 1617EVSPK router has a depth capacity of 2.25". For plunge, it is 2-1/4" and for fixed base, it is 1-5/8" depth range. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Will Porter Cable routers work with this table

Asked by Jf May 29, 2020

Ordered this with Bosch Gravity Rise Stand TS 2100. Though stand was made for table saw, it works well for router table after drilling holes to adapt. Order came to shop on schedule. Very pleased with Home Depot service. Thank you!

Garbage Router Table
This is a terrible router table. The insert plate is of an atypical size, which disallows the use of any upgraded insert plate. Be warned, if you buy this router table, you will be left with a unit that can't be upgraded. You'll just end up buying a different router table down the line anyway. The router height adjustment that you'll be stuck with, if you purchase this table, works, but not very well. After a long enough time, you'll want a fine adjustment from a different lift, but won't be able to use one because of Bosch's crappy design. Good luck finding a router plate insert that's 11-3/8" wide! DON'T BUY THIS ROUTER TABLE!! Fun fact: Bosch deleted my review from their website; I'm guessing because they don't want people knowing this gigantic flaw in their product. I think people should know this prior to purchasing, as it matters a LOT to the consumer.

The only issue I had with this is the instructions for the assembly of the router table. Had to muddle through it, and take a couple of screws and bolts on and off, but after it was assembled it proved to be a sturdy router table ... I would recommend this but to take your time in the assembly of the table.

Easy to assemble. Rock solid stable. Feature packed. Did a lot of research before buying. This is the absolute best value. Been using it for a month and still love it. Made my first ever raised pa em door with this table and a Ridgid router. Had to drill one hole in the mounting plate for the Ridgid height adjustment. So it IS compatible with the R2200 Ridgid router.

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.

Review of Bosch 120 Volt Corded 27" X 18" Router Table
Quality :
Value :
After reading many reviews I selected the Bosch Router table as "best of breed" for the money. Believe me, I studied this for a while before making my purchase. I also went through several You Tube videos and was aware it took time to assemble this table. First, and much to my disappointment, the router table top and legs were scratched. It would have been impossible for the retailer to make the scratches because of the packaging so let me assume that Bosch send out the product on a day when their quality inspection team was on vacation. Second, and very important, is that there are a number of screws. It took me longer to determine where the screws went than it do to do the assembly. Why in the world would you not package the screws by the area in which they are destined to go rather then put them all in a single bag? Lastly, I will say that Home Depot was receptive to make everything right and agreed to take the product back with a full refund and a discount, but the time I invested in putting the table together helped me to decide otherwise. Bosh, I spend a lot of money on tools and accessories. I'm in Home Depot 2-5 times a week, but this is the last product of yours that will adorn my workshop.

Great router set!
Quality :
Value :
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.
