      Comments about 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

      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.

      Good Router

      By Bill3031

      from Alabama

      Comments about Bosch 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router:

      I bought this router to use in a second router table. I'm an old retired guy and A bit of system redundancy works well for me. I decided to try the 1617EVS router in a Bosch RA1181 router table. Not only is the setup easy with this system but all the functionality is there as well. Bosch used several well thought out ideas. The router has plenty of power for not only edge shaping but its use as a jointer works very well. I've ran a good amount of red oak through it and the router4 has not faltered once. There is no appreciable run-out and bits are easy to change. Adjusting the height through the table is a definite plus. I would buy this router again.

        • Needs Two Wrenches

        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.

        • 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,

          Ron
