        I bought this router to go in my router table.
        just got finished doing a set of shaker style doors with it. The router table base was great and the ability to make adjustmaents from above the table was a time saver.
        The router was smooth and powerful along with the nice soft start motor. I probably will not be using this touter much for handheld work since I have enough other routers for that but for my purposes this was agreat purchase, would gladly do it again.

          The micro adjustment is great you do not have to guess. Second the router is lighter than my old one so easier to handle. When mounted in a router table you can adjust the height through the mounting bracket.

            This is my 3rd Bosch Router. I have the same model with a plunge base that was getting the switch fixed, so since I already had the table and used it quite a bit, this package has made it easy to leave the set-up and do other tasks.

                Q:

                does it work on 220 Volts, since I plan to take it outside the US

                • A:

                  The Bosch 2-1/4 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router is wired for 120 volt power. You can purchase a third party power converter if you want to use with 220 volt power.

                Q:

                I have a 1617 with plunge attachment. Can it also be interchanged with this? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but my 1617 is in for repair and I need the plunge ability now.
