    Q:Am I able to use this with 100 or 150 ft extension cord? If so, which gauge is required?
    by|Sep 14, 2022
    3 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Adam, This isn't a router question because the router doesn't care if you connect it to an extension cord or a grapefruit, as long as it gets 12amps at 115volts. The question is can you get that power from your house to where you need it. There are variables to this but assuming just the router(12amp load) and all your electrical connections are good(no loose connections) and you have true 115-120volts at the panel a 12gauge wire should be adequate for 100'. The closer to 120volts at the panel and total distance(including wiring from panel to the outlet the extension cord is plugged into) you'd be borderline using 12gauge for 150' (10gauge is safer for 150'). The risk is overheating the electrical and a fire hazard somewhere in the circuit. You also risk damaging the router if the voltage drop is to high. At very least you should use a meter to check voltages, at panel as well as end of cord. *note- I believe 100' cord is the recommended max in most local codes. Periodically check for heat buildup in the circuit during use.

      A:  Hi there! When using 150 feet extension cords, you'll need a: 12 Gauge for 10-12 Amps. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

        A:  Yes, but remember that you loose volts with distance and you need a large enough size wire to handle the amperage. I believe that router takes 12 amps at peak which means you probably need to have a 12 gauged cord at 100 feet.

              Q:Will this table fit palm/compact routers or just full-sized?

              Answer This Question

                Love/Hate Relationship
                I like the steel deck, but the fence is really difficult to get squared and lined up with the bit perfectly. Also, the channel for mitre dealie is too wide. I did some beautiful cabinet doors with it, but that fence was a pain.

                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 needed to replace 6 basement windows in my 90+ year old house. I bought this router table and a new Bosch router as well, along with the appropriate window sash bits and dug in. I am very pleased with this table and the vacuum hose port. Normally when I use a router I have wood chips everywhere but the vacuum port eliminates this problem. Plug you shop vac into the power strip along with the router and when you turn the power on, the vacuum starts along with the router. I opted for the aluminum top because it will be stored in my damp basement and I was afraid the other tops would not fare well over time. The windows turned out great and the table was easy to use. One problem I did have is that the 4mm screws to mount the router to the plate were too long for one of the three locations (4mm X 20mm). A trip to HD fixed the problem with 4mm X 12mm screws.

                My Bosch router platform
                This is an excellent router platform. I also bought a Bosch router to ensure compatibility. Works great and very stable. I have used it many times in the last few years and very durable. I call it a router platform because a table it is not. Too low to use on the ground and too high if used on a workbench. What I did was build a custom table that makes this the best portable Router table on the market. Love my Bosch Router platform/table.

                  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.
