Bosch's Precision Centering Design delivers accuracy and control. View larger.
Take care of even the toughest routing jobs with the powerful 2.25-horsepower, 12-amp motor and its versatile speed range of 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. The variable-speed dial allows you to set the optimal speed for the task. And with built-in Constant Response Circuitry, your router will maintain a constant speed throughout the cut, so you get clean, accurate results.
With its integrated soft-start feature, the motor reduces torque upon startup for a smooth transition and easy handling. The 1617EVS's design adapts to let you work with the switch and cord on the right or the left, giving you improved consistency and precision, as well as the confidence knowing that the motor won't rotate during depth adjustment.
Accurate Fixed Base Cuts
This versatile kit provides all the components necessary for fixed-depth routing. Microfine bit-depth adjustment on the base, with an overall range of one inch and accuracy to 1/64 inch, allows for accurate and fast changes. And the Bosch Precision Centering Design 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 fixed base includes threaded holes for mounting to router tables, and its advanced bit-height adjustment system allows you to conveniently adjust the bit height from above the router table. The base also features a quick-clamp system for fast, tool-free conversions, so moving the motor between two bases takes only seconds and requires no equipment.
Rugged Design for Increased Durability
The Bosch 1617EVS Router is durable and built for years of use. The motor housing and bases are made of aluminum, and the power switch is completely dust-sealed for added durability.
This router is backed by a one-year limited warranty, 30-day money-back guarantee, and one-year service protection plan.
