Bosch 1617EVSPK 12 Amp 2.25 HP Combination Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit

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
  • Soft start - Reduces start-up torque
  • Variable-speed dial - For matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Constant-Response circuitry - Maintains constant speed under load, provides overload protection
  • Precision centering design - Makes it easy to keep bit on intended cut line when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices
  • Quick clamp system on both bases for fast tool-free conversion - Move motor from base to base with ease
  • 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

Very solid and well made router. Easy to change base and smooth plunge operation. Variable speed works great and has plenty of power for the hard woods.

All you need in a router
I bought this router because it offered both the fixed and plunge bases. The bases are easy to change. The controls are easy to use, especially the plunge base and depth control. It is quiet and moves smoothly. The plastic case is great, but you need to turn the motor around to store it in the plunge base.

Sweet router
Although I’ve not run any large profile bits yet, I’m very happy with my purchase. Smooth and easy to control, this is a high quality unit.

I purchased this router about a week ago to replace a few older craftsman units. I have to say this is a great products with some nice feature. I was looking at purchasing a router lift, however this is not need since the router allows fine adjustment above the table with the fix base! Great win. The unit is very robust but also has very minimal play which allows for accurate fine adjustment.

The multiple speed settings are easy to adjust and access when below the table.

I utilized the plunge base this weekend and will need to purchase the Bosch specific edge guide but overall the ability of the plunge exceeds what I have expected especially the smooth sliding action of the plunge.

Don’t wait like I did!

Purchased this router on line. Mounted it in a router table and it won't depth adjust. Now I have to box it up and send it back to acme tools. No more bosch and no more on line purchases.

Well built with great features.
I am impressed by the heftiness of this well designed tool. I've used the plunge feature and was surprised at the power and ease of use along with the accuracy. The graduated depth dial was most convenient and made the job much easier. convenience

I recently got this router from Lowe’s and used it a handful of times and one day it just wouldn’t turn back on. I replaced the switch and still nothing. Not very happy about this. Should look into a different brand.

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
