Not A Precision Item
The guide body looks like it's an aluminum casting, and there are no machined surfaces. There is some degree of slop when tightening the wing knobs which may change your setting. Practice with the guide until you have a knob tightening sequence that won't allow the setting to change. Also, the guide plates extend 1-1/8" below my 1617's base plate, so thinner stock will have to be clear of your work surface. Within these limitations the guide works as advertised.

Must have for the 2.3 amp
This is a must-have item for any routing projects that need to get done quickly on site.
The mounting angle was a little awkward at first but it's very easy to get used to after a few minutes of using the guide on your router. No problems so far, %100 satisfied.

Awesome tool for home renovation!
I just ventured into the world of routers to reproduce some trim pieces on a 100 year old lemon I own.
This table is fantastic mated with the 2.25hp Bosch router. Flawless cuts, was very easy to gain a handle on operation and quick adjustments. I plan on building a workbench so this table can sit flush with the main work surface for longer run pieces and more easy control of larger pieces etc.

What did I do without this?
I typically would use my router table but when I needed to use the hand grips on a work piece this product worked great.

Can we ask Bosch questions, how small a circle can it accurately guide?

how can i deattch the parts
meissa on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Here is the step-by-step manual of how to attach and deattach the parts for this guide:
Do you know the spacing between the two rods on the Bosch router guide? It appears they slide into holes drilled through the base of the router. I ask this because I have the plunge base for my DeWalt 611 Compact Router, and it has holes drilled for a similar sort of router guide. It is a tease to have the holes in the DeWalt base, but no accessory router guide available from DeWalt at the present time to fit into them. Only their DNP618 edge guide, which has only a 5-inch reach, instead of 8+ inches with the Bosch router guide.

BEST ANSWER: The guide does indeed slide into holes in the base where each is anchored with a thumb screw.
A question to you…is it not possible to replace the rods in your guide with longer rods, even if they needed to be machined in a metal shop? I wonder?
out side of rod to outside of rod is 4.31”…about 109.3mm
rods are a scant 3/8”….371”…about 9.4mm
and inside to inside they are about 3.579” or 90.9mm
They are quite rigid and won/t offer much leeway when the guide frame is close to the router, maybe only a few thousands of an inch.
cpo is a great company and it would be worth a phone call to them and ask about their return policy…just in case it is a you decide to try it and it doesn’t quite fit. Like I say, it will need to be about a perfect fit because the Bosch guide is extremely rigid and precise leaving very little leeway, if any, anywhere. Probably why 1/256” (0.1mm) is a quite easy adjustment, 1/512” is easy to read on the dial, but does vary slightly each time I adjust it. In other words, the thing is insanely accurate which leaves very little room for errors in the router base plate. If its close (.020” or something less) it would worth a try in my opinion.
Best to you and have a save 4th.
