    Not a perfect router

      Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

      Clean design, good fit and finish. Two disappointments.
      1- the router requires two wrenches to loosen the collect nut.
      2- the retaining clip on the adjustment screw came loose before I had even used it. Fortunately a saw the little black clip come flying off, tracked it down and put it back in place.

            Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

            I just received it and have not used it but a few minutes, so this review is NOT based on experience with it. However, I agonized over the choice for several weeks. I read dozens of reviews. I compared features and common comments from both professional reviewers and from end-users. The only issue that kept popping up was the on/off switch being susceptible to dust/clogging. My other choice was the Milwaukee 2.25hp router. Since I will be using this Bosch as the spindle for the CNC router that I'm building I chose the Bosch finally because I can get more collets for it (1/8", 6mm, etc.) and that's also why the on/off switch is not an issue for me since I have a CNC-controlled relay for that. Also, it looks like the bearings are user-replaceable and readily available.

              Comments about Bosch 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

              I bought the Bosch router specifically to use in my shop made router table. I use a Router lift made by Jess Em for Incra. This lift takes advantage of the router features and allows me to do all adjustments from the top of the table. The router is a great tool.

                  Comments about Bosch 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

                  First router arrived well packed with accessories included. I was looking for a spare router to speed up bit changes for projects that required multiple bits. Initial use showed it had a bad bearing and the speed was sporadic. I returned it requesting a replacement which arrived in LESS than 7 days. Great customer service and the replacement router works great.

                    I bought this to use in a router table, but routed a profile on baseboard freehand with no trouble. The soft start makes this powerful router easier to use than my old Makita plunge router.

                    Questions & Answers

                     

                    New Vs. 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.
