Bosch 1617EVS 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router

Details
The Bosch 1617EVS 2.25 HP Electronic Fixed-Base Router produces exacting cuts every time, thanks to a 12 Amp motor that combines ample power with adjustable speed settings. Users can glide along the intended cutline using dovetail fixtures, templates, jigs and other guidance devices. A precision centering system and 3-3/4 In. base opening enable swift maneuverability along the intended path. This tool is also one of the quietest routers in its class.
Powerful Variable-Speed Motor - The Bosch 1617EVS steers through even the toughest routing jobs with the powerful 2.25-horsepower, 12 Amp motor and its versatile speed range of 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The variable-speed dial allows the operator to set the optimal speed for the task. And with built-in Constant Response Circuitry, the router will maintain a constant speed throughout the cut, resulting in clean, accurate product.
Smooth Startup and Simple Operation - The Bosch 1617EVS delivers an integrated soft-start feature, so that the motor reduces torque upon startup for a smooth transition and easy handling. Its design adapts to let the user work with the switch and cord on the right or the left, for improved consistency and precision, as well as the confidence knowing that the motor won't rotate during depth adjustment. The one-piece armature shaft maximizes accuracy and long-bit shank capacity in the router.
Features:
  • 2.25 HP, 12 amp motor delivers 8000 - 25,000 RPM
  • Coarse and microfine bit depth adjustment system with the ability to reset the depth indicator - For fast, precise depth adjustment
  • Variable-speed dial - For matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Tool-free template guide adapter - For fast and easy template guide changes
  • Large 3-3/4 in. base opening plus 2 in. sub-base opening - Accepts large bits
  • Exclusive precision centering design centers bit precisely - Makes it easy to keep bit on intended cut line when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices
  • Right or left switch location - For user preference and consistency (motor does not rotate during depth adjustment)
  • Classic hardwood handles - For comfort and beauty
  • One-piece armature shaft - For accuracy and long bit shank capacity
  • Soft start - Reduces start-up torque
  • Constant Response circuitry - Maintains constant speed under load, provides overload protection
  • This item may ship in the original manufacturer's packaging

Operates Great
I installed the router in my router table the day I recieved it and it works as great as expected from Bosch.

Has the features I wanted.
I bought this last week at work. It was the only one of the 4 brands of routers we sell that could be adjusted from the top of the table. I found that the standard 3-hole mounting was not the same as the holes on my router table so I made a template and put holes in the table for mounting and access to the above table adjustment. My first use I found that the bit apparently vibrated loose and began rising up into my work. I may not have had it tightened enough but I reset it and re-tightened it and had no issues for the rest of that session.

I replaced my old dependable Router with the Bosch 1617EVS Router. Man what a difference 20 years makes. The Bosch Router is so smooth and easy to operate. I will be using this router for many projects and years to come! I do like the fact it has two Collet sizes for more adaption of use with new and different bits. This Router has sold me on Bosch woodworking tools.

Hope it continues okay...
Just bought router especially for live edge coffee table I'm making. I was excited to get started on this project after year and half of waiting for slab to dry (and other priorities. Used it first day without any problems for an hour or two then it happened. I went to turn it on and nothing. checked the plug, yes plugged in. Fuses, breakers? everything check. Don't tell me I have to send it back! Until I tried the switch one more time. Presto! Since it is brand new and I know its not a clogged rocker switch I'll just make sure the switch 'clicks' all the way.
The motor is very quiet with nice slow start.
Still learning all the settings and adjustments. This is not my first router. I finally upgraded from a fixed speed craftsman router that won't die. I found it hard to upgrade when I have a tool already.
Can't wait to mount on my router table and be able to use the top mount adjustment.

Exactly what I expected.
I only needed the motor but had to buy it with base. Would have been better if I could have just got the motor and saved a few bucks and not have to deal with an additional base.

Great router with room for improvement
I really like this router. It works great for what I need it for. My drawback is that it would be nice to have a switch at the handle for safer on/off. However if you are using it as a table router then I have no issues at all. I am very impressed with the power and how smooth it is.

I had a very old router on my table and it finally died on me. I looked at many routers and reviews before deciding on this router. Ive only had it about a two weeks and I am very impressed with the ease of set up and the micro adjustment. Love this router. Great quality and power.

First Router
This is my first router, so this is a beginners intial review. I purchased the 1617EVS along with the RA1171 table. Everything matched up perfectly. The router seems to be stout and easy to operate. I'm feeling confident in choosing this router for my first.

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
