        Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

        I own 4 Bosh routers. They are more quiet than my Porter Cable. I find that the 8mm collet is handy for using European bits, for instance those that come with the Liegh Dovetail jig.

          Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

          I purchased this router with the intent of leaving it permanently in my new Bosch RA1171 router table.
          Holes in mounting plate and router base aligned perfectly
          The depth adjustment is the finest I've ever worked with, capable of very precise work. Cannot tell it was reconditioned looks brand new.

            Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

            I bought this router specifically to mount in the Bosch router table I purchased. It has a great height adjustment dial that works perfectly with the table. The only complaint owners have is the power switch failing prematurely. The router table has it's own power switch so I will probably never encounter that problem. Love the soft start.

              Building myself a modest router table, and this router will be the machine; seems simple and strong, looking forward to the project!

                This is my second Bosh 1617 router, I have one mounted in my router table and it seemed more trouble than it was worth to take it out of the table every time I wanted to use a hand held router. Both routers work great, the hand router sure makes a mess though. I use it mostly for making dovetails and it does a really nice job but I do spend as much time cleaning up as routing.

                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.
