Bosch RA1165 Undertable Router Base with Fine Adjustment Extension

Details
The RA1165 under-table base is based on the durable Bosch fixed base but enhanced with an above-table bit height adjustment mechanism. The RA1165 under-table base can be mounted to virtually any table surface and common router table plates. It includes hardware for mounting to router table and an T-wrench for adjusting the depth from above the table.

  • Base has threaded holes for mounting to router table positioned in Bosch 4-hole pattern and common 3-hole pattern (hardware included)
  • Wide 3-3/4 in. base opening allows use of larger bits

  • Quick clamp system allows motor to be moved with ease and without tools
  • Two additional protective devices to prevent motor from falling to floor after quick-clamp is released

Convenient addition
If you have a router table but can’t justify having two routers this base is the way to go. Identical to the Base that comes with the Bosch router but designed to be mounted to a router table.

Essential addition to the RA1181
I purchased this Table Base for the RA1181 Router Table, accompanying the 1617EVSPK Router. I can't imagine having to disassemble the table every time I would need the fixed base for the 1617. This extra base will pay for itself in time saved very quickly indeed! It's also nice that I have two hex key wrenches: one in the Table storage bin, and one to keep in the case as backup. It's also very nice not having base handles in the way under the Table. This is definitely worth including with the package, and not overly priced.

Great Lift
What a life saver! I love this lift when it works. There is a washer on the lift between the bolt where the key is used to turn the lift and the manual adjust that keeps popping off and when it does the lift won't work unless reset. I am actually on here today to get a replacement for that as it has already worn out and we have just received and been using this the past 3 weeks. I think a fitted tension ring would have been a better design for this area as the washer (though marginally functional does not support the opposing forces applied in raising and lowering the lift frequently. Aside from this minor issue that is easily corrected I love this lift!

I mounted this base below a old craftsman router table. My only complaint which really isn't a large one was the trouble with aligning the mounting screws. I should have realized a craftsman table would not line up perfectly with this Bosch base. Luckily after some slight adjustments it worked perfectly and allowed for an easy transition between my router table and other router bases.
