Product Overview

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

Unique Features
I have two of these, with one dedicated to the RA1171 Router Table and the other with both fixed and plunge bases. This is a powerful, easily operated router with hex-key height adjustment, ideal for a router table. This feature alone sets it apart from other routers. The only drawback is the choice of screws that mount the router to the base, a cross between straight and Phillips head patterns. I replaced mine with a Phillips head screw. Such a minor complaint shows how flawless the router is.

Quiet
I bought this router for several reasons, soft start, variable speed, and the height adjustment. I love all of those features and got a bonus its quiet, my old router would wake up the hole neighborhood, not this one.

Fantastic router!
I bought this router originally to use in my router table, but found it worked so well in my hands, I ended up buying a second one! Very powerful under load, balanced well too.

Excellent router
Bought when on sale, handles anything I can throw at it. Should've bought the plunge base combo.

Strong router but where's the dust collection?
A router does a couple things. It routes, and it expels dust/wood. This routers primary use is for leveling wood in my shop. The features are good, but in execution containing the dust is a huge problem for a small shop. Looked all over YouTube for something for dust collection and there is nothing. This router would probably get 5 stars for an under table usage, but not for free hand work. This unit should have come with a dust collection port.

So easy to use!
I've been looking for a decent router to mount to my newly constructed router table for some time and I've found it. I love the above table height adjustment! To be honest, it's beyond decent. I was originally going to keep it permanently mounted to my table but I found that is such a great router that I purchased another hand hold receiver so I can use it for everything router related...specifically my dovetail jig. Kicking myself for not buying it sooner!

Great Handling!
I bought this about two months ago for a floor project. I had to route tunnels to put in tubing for in floor heating. It worked great. The router speed kept at a constant and did a great job.

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: I use a MuscleChuck with mine and it works fantastic. Simple turn of a hex nut, bit comes out, new one in, a simple turn and you're back at work.
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

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 120 days.
