DON'T GET ANY BETTER!
I already had a Dewalt plunge router that I love but got tired of installing it and removing it from my router table, so I was in need of another fixed base router to leave in my table and since I already have some Bosch power tools and a Bosch router table, I was familiar with the brand and never had problems with them, so I decided to go with Bosch again and I am glad I did. I bought a $10 cheaper Bosch router, which I guess is also a good router but when I saw that I could get the same router except it had a varible speed and 1/4 hp more, I returned it for this one. That extra 1/4 hp is nice when using a bit such as a large raised panel bit but you need to turn down the rpm's, so a varible speed is almost a necessity. I was going to add a speed control until I found this router. [...]

It's a "Smoooooth Operator"
I use it in hand and in table. I am 75 years old and grew up in wood. I really like Bosch products and have purchased and used many of them. I really like the ease of handling and the smoothness of this router. Charles Rowe

Excellent router for router table
When mounted in the router table, it is easy to change the height of the bit in the Bosch fixed based router, and very fine adjustments of bit height can be made easily. At times I would like to raise the bit higher than the router allows, and so at these times I have to raise the shaft of the bit somewhat within the router to achieve the desired height. Thus it is advisable to use bits with a one-half inch shaft.

One fine tool
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.

[...] Would deffinately order from them again. The price was very reasonable. I had no trouble installing this router in my Rockler Lift FX. It took a few seconds to get it installed and ready for use in my router table.

Should work fine for me.
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.

Well designed router
This is a reconditioned product and it looked brand new to me. It had no signs of use and I suspect it was a returned unused item. I'm using this router in a router table. It has plenty of power and is pretty quiet as routers go. A good buy in my opinion. I've bought from CPO before and they have great deals on quality tools.

A great little router
I've had this router for over a year now. I bought it when my old [@] router started to die. This Bosch is a great little router, especially at the reconditioned price. I use it both in my table and by hand and in both cases it does exactly what I ask of it. I can see how it might be a bit underpowered if you use it with hardwoods, but for me I just make more shallow passes. As opposed to othe routers, making depth changes on this one is a snap - particularly useful when it's in the table. I could not be more pleased with this.

Excellent customer service
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.

IBosch router
I use the router in a table.
I like the fine adjustment through my table
I have had two of these and have had trouble with the course adjustment on both of them.

I just returned one for credit because the course adjustment would not hold when I turned it over in my table

Once installed in a router table, can the 1617EVS height adjustment be made from above the table? If so, does a tool or special wrench come with the router? Thanksw
Marty on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes with the supplied key
Do you have to use a wrench to change the bits?
redneck on Feb 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you do . A collet nut wrench and shaft wrench are included with the kit.
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

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.
