      Used it to save money by making my own router table, and now all the molding that I am using in my remodel. Saved a ton of money on the router and I am making better pieces than I can buy for a fraction of what the stores charge.

          Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

          Absolutely my go to router for free hand, plunge, and router table use. I own 2, and one is mounted in my main router table. It is almost 10 years old and still going strong. Ibuild guitars which require extremely accurate routing. The Bosch 1617EVS sets up easily and delivers accurate, repeatable results, without bogging down, even in dense hardwoods. The EVS (Electronic Variable Speed) is a must.

            This router has plenty of power to rout my raised panel doors and drawers. I still have the first one I bought and it works fine but wanted a second one to allow me to keep one dedicated to a table. Also the price at CPO could not be beat.

            • 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router

              Q:

              I want to replace the base..the original is cracked. How do I get the up/down adjustment assembly off the old base?? I appears that a small Allen wrench fits into the bottom of the rod. I removed the C-ring, but it doesn't want to come out.

              Thanks for any help,

            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.
