    Happy with the product

    By RouterJockey

    from Prineville, OR

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

    I am happy with the product, especially the ability to adjust the bit height from above the router table. I have not used the plunge router accessory yet, but it appears to be better made than the one I had previously (a bargain brand). I would have given it 5 stars, except that it is lacking one feature that would make it better. A spindle lock is really handy when you have the router attached to a table. That way, you only need one wrench to change bits.

        I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another refurbished tool from CPO. The router came well packaged and if it hadn't said it was a refurb I would never have known.

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

        After my 35 year old Sears, single speed, fixed base, router went up in blue smoke, I knew the time had come for a new tool. I read many reviews about routers and the Bosch was highly recommended, especially the plunge aspect. The tool is well built, but heavy. At least for me, it is not easy to set all of the adjustments on the plunge base. The variable speed and soft start are excellent features. The case is molded plastic and large enough for additional accessories. I have not used this tool in a router table yet, but I believe it will do very well as a stationary tool. If you are just going to put some edges on your wood projects, you can spend less, but longevity of the tool probably will not match this Bosch. I bought this as reconditioned, as are all of the tools I get from CPO, but I have yet to have a failure; knock on wood.

        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.
