    Comments about 12 Amp 2.25 HP Combination Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit:

    I bought this to install into a router table extension I am making using a router lift. I bought the kit so I can utilize the bases to permenantly mount one in a tramel and one with a bushing for dovetails. Great deal!

    Comments about 12 Amp 2.25 HP Combination Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit:

    After 20 years in the cabinetmaking business, I feel I know a bit about tools. Bosch makes good tools. By "good", I mean well-designed, well- constructed, close attention to fits and finishes, and highly functional for their intended uses. We use Porter Cable routers in my shop but have one of these 2.25 HP Bosch routers also. For my home shop, I chose the Bosch because it's just so well made and well designed. It doesn't have quite the weight and power of the PC Speedmatic but is quite adaquate for my home shop needs. I'd like a trigger switch on the plunge base but can certainly live with the rocker switch on the motor. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the fixed base comes with a hex key that fits through an access hole in the base to allow easy height adjustment when using the router in a table.

          Refurbished is hit or miss; this time the router was scuffed up a lot, looking like it was used a lot. But anyway everything is working fine.

          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.
