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.

    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
        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!
        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.

        Easy to Use
        This is the first router I have ever used. It is light enough to make handling it very managable. So far I have used it on 3/4" finish plywood. It cut like butter. The bit adjustment is very easy. I am buying a Rockler universal router base to attach to it to make a larger base for stability. (but it works just fine without it)

        Just right for DIY
        I have a Bosch 1617EVSPK combination router, have used it for several projects - medicine cabinets in which the shelves go into slots, hinge mortising for three new bedroom doors (with a door hinge mortising kit), and a mounting base for a Hanukkah menorah made from an old wooden hockey stick. I realized after these that some of them would have been a lot easier with a router table, so got this one. It was easy to assemble except for leveling the mounting plate, which is pretty tricky. I still don't have it quite right, but it works fine at this point, having just done a bunch of rabbeting for a table frame. It is a pleasure to use. I was able to insert and change router bits without removing the router or the mounting plate from the table. The wrenches get in from under the table and the bit drops in from the top. In order to be able to do this you have to position the router the right way on the plate. Since it mounts with three bolts, there are three positions. Only one puts the height adjustment access aligned with a hole in the mounting plate, and that also puts one of the openings in the base in a good position to get wrenches in without removing anything. Height adjustment was really easy. The 1617EVS router comes with a T-wrench for this. No extra accessories needed. The fixed base works just fine. Two things could be better, otherwise it would get five stars. The dust collection port is not too effective, and lots of chips accumulate under the table and off to the side, but it is not a big problem, just a little extra cleanup when you are done. Also, it would be nicer if the switch would be on the right side of the front panel instead of the left, since that would make getting the wrenches in position easier. Nice addition to a very small shop, only about 110 square feet, but I found a spot for it.

          router works great
          It has been years since i have used a router for any of my projects. I use to use an old craftsman router and it worked ok but this one is so much better. I have not even come close to using it for everything that it is capable of but i am sure it will do whatever you want it to. It is the smothest and quietest router I have used. If you are looking for one I would definetly recommend this one.

          Overall a great multi-purpose router
          I've never owned a Bosch tool before so was a bit apprehensive buying. I had the old Porter Cable plunge many years ago and it was a very nice router but sold all my equipment and have now recently bought a full shop again. I couldn't resist this kit finding it on a good sale and I think I also had a 10% coupon off one item. But even at the full retail price, the Bosch router with plunge still remains a good value. I have used it several times now and really love how it handles. It is a very smooth tool, with it's soft-start a very nice feature. Adjusting the speed wheel fixes any rough cuts or burning I have had so far. There is plenty of power, though I have not yet tried it mounted on a table. If I were to complain about something it would be the location of the switch. This is not only Bosch but most other manufacturers as well that place the power switch in pretty inconvenient locations, making it a bit awkward at times. One other nitpicking suggestions would be for Bosch to replace the outdated looking wood grips and use something with a textured or rubberized surface. Overall, these are pretty small details that wouldn't influence my opinion of this being a fantastic router. I would highly recommend it to any woodworker who needs one!

          Strong, Reliable, Dependable
          I used this router for over 8 years. While working in construction as a finish carpenter, I saw and borrowed several different routers. For me, NOTHING compared to this router. There wasn't a job that i did that it couldn't handle. I had multiple jobs that i used it for from simple rounding over the edge to full out raised panels. When it came to flutting, and i did a lot of it, this router is the easiest to hold and manage. After doing several 8ft columns and two mantels with a few custom flutted cased windows and doors, at the end of the day, i was still able to grip it again for those last minute detail work.

          Bosch router kit 1617EVSPK, plunge & fixed base, great combination.
          Bosch quality and power with versatility too. Router can be used as fixed base, mounted to router table, or install router motor in the plunge base, all switch with relative ease. Note: To use threaded template guides you must additionally purchase Bosch #RA1126 quick change template guide adapter which attaches to router base plate, and #RA1100 threaded template guide adapter which clicks into quick change adapter.
