        Comments about Bosch 2 HP Fixed-Base Router:

        I have had this router for almost 5 yrs. and it has been in a router table most of that time.I have made everything from small moldings to raised panels using 3 1/2 " bits and a router speed control,This router has never let me down in anything I have tried to do with it.The power is there if and when you need it.Using it for cutting dovetails with a jig the wood handles on the base are comfortable and provide excellent control over the router.I would buy one again if I were to need a new one.

            New Vs. Reconditioned

            What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

            Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
            • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
            • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
            • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
