Factory Reconditioned Bosch 1617EVS-46 2.25 HP Fixed-Base Electronic Router

Details
Often copied but never equalled, the Bosch 1617EVS revolutionized the mid-size fixed-base router category. Designed for a broad range of routing applications, the versatile Bosch 1617EVS was the first router in its category to have a 2.25 (max) horsepower rating, linear depth adjustment and numerous other Bosch routing innovations. The powerful 2.25 HP, 12 Amp motor handles tough routing jobs, and its versatile speed dial allows the speed to be optimized for the task at hand from 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The soft-start feature reduces start-up torque for smooth and easy handling. The Bosch Constant Response circuitry helps maintain a constant speed for clean, accurate and consistent results.
Features:
  • 2.25 HP, 12 amps, 8000 - 25,000 RPM
  • Variable-speed dial - For matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Coarse and microfine bit depth adjustment system with resettable depth indicator - For fast, precise depth adjustment
  • 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

Nice recon tool
Only have used it a couple times so far. Quality seems equivalent to new. Mounted it in a router table and am ready to go.

This is a great router. It comes with 1/2 & 3/8 collet. I wish there was a 1/4" also.

Easy installation into my shop made router table and benchdog router plate
This made a real easy installation to my shop made router table using a benchdog router plate. The router slips out easily to change router bits and the handle makes raising and lowering the router very accurate. Plenty of power and variable speed.

Nicely made
I installed a 3" router bit on this after I installed it on my
Jessem router lift I ran the 3" bit at its lowest speed
taking about 1/8" a pass to make a large cove
in some hardwood anything more then this or a fast feed rate the motor bogs down and stops.
Now this is a seriously large bit to test this on and I may find the router is really nice with smaller bits.
I think a 3 hp router would do better for this.

I need to learn how to adjust speed/feed rate with differnt types of bits, this is my first multi speed router
so I do not have a lot of exp with them. The router seems very heavy duty And for most things would work really good, but I got this for Lock Miter Bits and I do not believe you can take more then one pass with them. We'll see. Keep in mind this review is tied into my skill level and really not so much the tool.
You should always consider that reading reviews.

I hope to get a lot of use out of this. But I may have to get a 3hp router at some time and a differnt router lift.

Bosch makes a great router but CPO is a FAIL.
I received the router, a reconditioned Bosch 2.25HP in a very timely manner. I already own one of these and can attest to the high quality of this product, which I use daily. However, when I received this router from CPO and removed it from the box, it became very apparent that the router had sustained damage somewhere before it got to me. The baseplate was cracked and one of the broken pieces was floating around in the box. The amount of impact that it would take to break this sturdy plastic base has me concerned that the entire router must have taken a very jarring hit, and this may have long term effects on the machine that are not apparent at this time. I attempted to contact customer service through their online email form multiple times but never received a reply. I then called the customer service phone number and the CS rep said she would send me an email to which I could reply with the issue and include some photos. I did as she asked, but after not hearing from anyone at CPO after a few days, I replied to the email again, attached the photos again, and sent it. It's been about a week and a half and I haven't heard from anyone at CPO. So, awesome customer service, CPO. Thank you.

A shopper on Mar 7, 2018

cowman on Oct 5, 2015

AverageYo on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The router does not come with a case.
does this router use standard guide bushing like the porter cable 690, to use with leigh dovetail jig?
veto on Oct 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, this router does not use the guide bushings that will go on the Porter-Cable. It uses Bosch guide bushings.
