Good choice among mid-power routers.
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.

Bosch 1617 EVSPK Router Combo Kit
This router is all what I was looking for. It allows me to work on the bench and at the job location. It arrived earlier than expected and came in plastic case housing all parts, which is perfect for carrying around and I can find it when I need it. Although I ordered the refurbished kit, the two bases were new while the motor was the only part that showed it had been used.

I am glad with my purchase and look forward to using it with many projects in the future.

very fine product, good as a new one
it is every bit as good as a new one, I use it for hanging doors and it performs purfectly. The only drawback is it gets a bit heavy after using it all day. Yes, I would buy it if I had it to do over. I will check there reconditioned tools when buying again.

Wonderful upgrade
I have used both bases, easy to move motor from one base to the other. Lots of power using a 1" straight bit in very dry Hickory. Very easy manual adjustment on the plunge base to make multiple passes prior to your final depth cut. The adjustable speed is nice, lowered the speed for detail work with an 1/4 " bit didn't noticed any loss in performance. Much quieter that way (I work in the basement below the family room.....) Love this tool. Good tools make any job easier.

Does this router come with a clear base? or is one available?
Donald on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, unfortunately, we do not have a clear base available for this unit.
Does it comes with different insert sizes (for different bit sizes)
Hank on Mar 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: According to the product description, it is adjustable to accept different sized bits.
After several weeks of research I have decided to purchase this product from CPO in order to get the most recent model available, the lowest price and free shipping. My local Lowes offers the same price, but they are stocking a slightly older model that does not have the dust-proof switch cover. It is my understanding that Bosch has modified this model to include the dust cover and provide the depth adjustment while mounted to a router table.

I want to verify that the unit shipped to me from CPO will in fact be the newest model with these 2 features. Can any recent CPO customers, or staff confirm this for me? The reason I ask is that other suppliers include a long hex wrench in the product specifications/included with listing. I did not see this in CPO's list of included parts.

Please help, I am anxious to order and begin working with this unit

BEST ANSWER: For assistance with this question, please contact our sales department (1-866-577-3014) or customer care department at (1-800-714-0918)
Is the plunge base for the 1617ev available by itself. I already have a Bosch 1617.
Frank on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The plunge base model number is Bosch RA1166 Plunge Router Base @ $89.99 in stock.
DOES IT HAVE ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL?
SAWDUSTCONER on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This unit has a variable speed dial for matching speed to workpiece and task.

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.
