Lighter weight than the Bench Dog top, level, well machined and well priced for what it is. One downside was that my Kreg router plate (and most others) won't fit as this has it's own size mounting plate.
Almost a year and a half later the aluminum top has oxidized so bad it is unusable without an auxiliary top to prevent pieces catching on all the dimples in the surface.
Not exactly the quality I expect from Bosch.
Between the router table,table saw with dado blade and cross cut saw your in business.
Remember that tools that cut and shape are only as good as their blades.

Matched up with new, Bosch 1617EVS, dedicated router. Had other routers, but would have cost as much to adapt as this was new. No adapter nor raiser needed. Smooth adjustment and operation. Purchase offset wrenches. Not necessary, but
easier. Table is nice and large for bench top type. Great easy adjust and slide tall fence. Table is solid and flat. Mounting plate is solid but took some time leveling. (Tip)- Level closest three screws, then middle two then back two. Fine tune after. Well designed guards and feather boards. Makes me wish I used them. Dust collection good. Attached a panel to the back of table. Any uncollected dust (minimal) is contained under the table. Five second clean up with vac. Base, although plastic, is sturdy. Bolts down easily.
With proper motor-great system.

manual for this router table, and on page 14 is a schematic of the
baseplate. The next page shows known compatible routers‹and there are Ryobi
R161 and R162 routers listed. Perhaps you can go to the Ryobi factory
website, and see if the baseplate of the R163 matches the R161 or R162, and
that should answer your question.
