Product Overview

Details

The Bosch 1617EVSPK 2.25 HP Combination Plunge- and Fixed-Base Router provides all the components necessary for fixed-depth routing and plunge routing as well. It has top-level power, thanks to a 12 Amp motor that combines muscle with varied 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 long the intended path. This tool is also one of the quietest routers in its class.
Precise Routing - This router employs the Bosch Precision Centering Design, which allows the bit to be centered with the sub-base or optional template guides. This makes it easier than ever to keep the bit on the intended cutting-line when using guidance devices such as jigs, templates or dovetail fixtures. The router comes in a comprehensive kit that provides all the components necessary for fixed-depth and plunge routing. Microfine bit-depth adjustment on the fixed base, with an overall range of one inch and accuracy to 1/64 in., allows for accurate and fast changes.
Powerful Variable-Speed Motor - The Bosch 1617EVSPK steers through even the toughest routing jobs with its 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.
Features:
  • 2.25 HP, 12 amp motor delivers 8000 - 25,000 RPM
  • Variable-speed dial - For matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Soft start - Reduces start-up torque
  • Constant-Response circuitry - Maintains constant speed under load, provides overload protection
  • Quick clamp system on both bases for fast tool-free conversion - Move motor from base to base with ease
  • Precision centering design - Makes it easy to keep bit on intended cut line when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices
  • Microfine bit depth adjustment system on both bases - For fast, precise bit depth adjustment
  • Right or left switch location - For user preference and consistency (motor does not rotate during depth adjustment)
  • Tool-free template guide adapter system - For fast and easy template guide changes
  • Wide base openings and 2 in. sub-base openings - Accepts larger bits and provides better visibility
  • Plunge-base has contoured soft grip handles - For enhanced control and comfort at all plunge depths
  • This item may ship in the original manufacturer's packaging

Another great Bosch product.
Typical Bosch performance. They feel like quality products. Really like the wood handles on the fixed base, haven’t used the plunge base yet.
Have also used it in my Bosch router table. Like it also.(RA1181)

Be Prepared for Accessory Expense
First Bosch tool I have purchased. Although I haven't been able to use it yet, it looks like a powerful and dependable router. I am disappointed that it requires several basic additional accessories not included like an insert adapter and special Bosch inserts to make it useful. It would be helpful if these were included with the product --Bosch, please send these items along.

I first bought a Bosch 1617EVS and the 1171 router table, which was a great combination, but there were times when I needed a second router, when I was doing a job, and needed both the router table and a separate router, and didn't want to be switching out the router between the table a using it as a standalone. So I bought this set to use in those instances. From buying the first 1617EVS, I knew what I was buying, which is a router with a lot of power, and good control. I have used other routers over the years, but none were any more capable, as comfortable to use, or had more precise settings and power than the Bosch. They are the best routers I have ever used.

I had to purchase a new router after another brand I had for years died. After thinking about the other brand I chose this kit and am really happy I did. Very smooth, precise, easy to work with!
Thanks Bosch!

I bought this router a while ago and it performs perfectly everytime. I also purchased the router table to go with the router and there isn't anything that i can't do with this conbination. Bit changing is fast and the whole unit lets me finish my projects quickly.

Great Router Combo
I have used it for a couple month as a plunge and fixed and attached to the Bosch table. Works great, doesn't even breath hard on 3/4" stock. Used it for dado cuts, circle cuts and it works great. Able to make fine adjustments. Highly recommend it.

After several weeks of research I have decided to purchase this product from CPO in order to get the most recent model available, the lowest price and free shipping. My local Lowes offers the same price, but they are stocking a slightly older model that does not have the dust-proof switch cover. It is my understanding that Bosch has modified this model to include the dust cover and provide the depth adjustment while mounted to a router table.

I want to verify that the unit shipped to me from CPO will in fact be the newest model with these 2 features. Can any recent CPO customers, or staff confirm this for me? The reason I ask is that other suppliers include a long hex wrench in the product specifications/included with listing. I did not see this in CPO's list of included parts.

Please help, I am anxious to order and begin working with this unit

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.
