Quality router
I have only used it for one small project, putting slots in pine boards for picture holding. The router easily mounted into the three holes in my aluminum router table insert. I did have to drill a hole through the insert for the above table adjuster tool. It was easy to measure where to put the hole and drill a 1/4” hole. The height adjustment is super easy, just open the latch on the router and turn the above table tool then close the latch. The motor’s soft start is nice and it runs very nicely. The motor controls are easy to get at by feel and after routing a few boards it was automatic.
The main reason I bought the Bosch is because I bought a Bosch jobsite saw last summer and love it. High quality and easy to use.

Great Router so Far
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.

Bosh 2 1/4 router
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.

Boy, was this an easy decision.
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.

wow nice
what a great router, The table base is great and with a quick turn on top I can adjust the height. Using the really nice wooden handles is easy on the hands and glides around the edge of wood very nice. If you need a router GET THIS ONE, you will be glad you did. I have had a few routers over the years, The craft.... made routers cant even be in the same catagory.

Bosch is the best
Read all the reviews and Bosch router(s) were pretty much on top. I wasn't disappointed. Bit pricier than competition but worth it. I use it in Bosch router table and it performs great. Adjusts easily, plenty of power. Only con, would be nice if you didn't need two wrenches to change out bit.

Good for router table
I bought this router and base to permanently mount it in my router table and cabinet. I already had one of these routers with a plunge base but didn't want to keep switching it out of the table, so I was already familiar with the motor.

Mounting the router table base to my Woodpecker table was quick and easy and fit perfectly. Being able to adjust router height from the top of the table is a plus and the whole Bosch outfit cost less than many router lifts.

The only real minus to this table mount is that you still have to reach under/into the table to loosen the clamp that holds the router into the mount to raise and lower the motor. It would be better if the motor could be adjusted up and down without doing that. On the plus side to that arrangement is that once you close the clamp the motor is secure and won't creep on you. Just recheck that bit height hasn't shifted when tightening everything up.

For me that minor inconvenience is more than balanced by the cost savings of not having to buy an expensive lift.

I also use a table mounted on/off switch outlet so that I don't have to reach under the table and fumble with the switch on the router. That's good practice no matter what router and lift combination you use.

The router motor itself is powerful and realtively quiet. Being able to quickly switch to a half inch collet is a big plus as half inch shank bits are the best way to go in many cases.

All in all this was a very good buy.
