For product information
Both bases feature the Bosch Precision Centering Design for accuracy and control.View larger.
With the integrated soft-start feature, the motor reduces torque upon start-up for a much smoother transition and easier handling on your part.
Accurate Fixed and Plunge Base Cuts
This versatile kit provides all the components necessary for fixed-depth routing and plunge routing, as well. Microfine bit depth adjustment systems on both bases allow for accurate and fast bit depth adjustments. The microfine adjustment has an overall range of one inch and is accurate to 1/64 inch.
Both bases also feature the Bosch Precision Centering Design, which allows the bit to be centered with the subbase or optional template guides (sold separately). 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.
Both of the included bases, fixed and plunge, feature quick clamp systems for quick tool-free conversions, so moving the motor between the two bases takes only seconds and requires no tools. The plunge base features soft grip handles for easier operation, and the fixed base includes threaded holes for mounting it to router tables. The fixed base's advanced bit height adjustment system allows you to conveniently adjust the bit height from above the router table.
Rugged Design for Increased Durability
The Bosch 1617EVSPK Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit is durable and built for years of use. The motor housing and bases are now made of aluminum, and the power switch is now completely dust-sealed for added durability. The rugged carrying case keeps all of the components protected. This routing system is backed by a one-year limited warranty, 30-day money back guarantee, and one-year service protection plan.

I have had this for a few months now and I really love it. This is my first router, and it seams to do the job. It feels comfortable. Read morePublished 23 hours ago by Barry Solomon

I am a little disappointed with the ability of this router when used with dovetail jigs. In order to use the bushing, had to purchase a quick connect adaptor, which accepted the... Read morePublished 11 days ago by recluse
Very nice, much quieter than my four craftsmen routers. The no jerk slow start took some getting used to, plunge base is smooth to operate and comfy handles.Published 15 days ago by Robert Carlisle
