Product Description

Color: NA


Bosch has combined power and performance to create a plunge router that's ideally suited for virtually any application. The powerful 3-1/2-horsepower Bosch 1619EVS offers variable speeds of 8,000 to 21,000 rpm and a soft-start feature that minimizes startup torque. With a router this big and powerful, it's especially nice to have the motor start up gradually, as opposed to jumping to life the way other models do. Complementing the powerful motor, the 3-3/4-inch base opening allows this router to accept large bits, including raised-panel bits. The 1619EVS maintains a constant rpm, too, no matter what knots or gnarls a bit encounters, thanks to Bosch's Constant-Response Circuitry. And the convenient front spindle lock makes changing bits a snap between applications. But perhaps the most unique feature of the 1619EVS is its exclusive under-table setup system, which lets a user make depth adjustments as easy as 1-2-3. --Carl Thress

From the Manufacturer

The Bosch 1619EVS electronic plunge router is the most versatile and precise router above and below the table. It features a powerful 3-1/4-horsepower, 15 amp motor and 3-3/4-inch base opening, allowing it to handle any routing task, including raised panels. A new Bosch-exclusive system easily defeats both plunge lock and plunge springs for effortless under-table depth adjustments--without having to buy expensive accessories! The motor features a variable speed range of 8,000 to 21,000 rpm (no-load), soft-start, and Constant Response circuitry that maintains speed under load. The plunge mechanism features dual plunge post bearings for smooth and accurate plunging action. The router's one-piece armature shaft provides accuracy and long bit shank capacity. The 1619EVS also has the Bosch-exclusive precision centering design for centering optional templet guides. Bit changing is easy thanks to the convenient front spindle lock. The unit includes the tool-free templet guide adapter, dust extraction hood with adapter for 1-1/4- and 1-1/2-inch vac hoses, 1/2- and 1/4-inch self-releasing collets, and comfortable drop-forged wrench.

Bosch quality can not be beat.
It fine adjusts easily but even with the plunge spring disengaged it is hard to make the coarse adjustments.
The router is well balanced and stable with plenty of power to spare.

I must say that combining the 3 1/4HP, with an opening that is 3 3/4 inches wide, and the unique spring disabling mechanism, make this beauty the number one under the table piece of equipment. The 3 and 1/4HP gives you more than enough power to handle even the large 3 1/2" popular kitchen cabinet panel raising bits. The larger opening, gives you plunge capabilities with the larger bits. Larger bits require multiple passes. Their are two ways to make multiple passes, one is move the fence, the other is use the adjustable turret, and sequentially plunge the bit. The Bosch 1619EVS enables you to do that. That is not an option is usually available on other routers due to their reduced openings.
The other thing to rave about is the spring defeat mechanism. Push a lever and the spring disappears from action. It free plunges, while still remaining in the base. (The new Australian model does that, but you have to remove the spring. No fun in a dusty environment.) This is important, because, when you have a router mounted upside down in a table, and you want to plunge the base, what often happens is that you lift the entire table. Now you are trying to compress a spring upside down, while holding the table down, and locking a mechanism all at the same time. It is enough to make you go to a fixed base router. :-) The problem with that is, except with the Porter Cable 3 1/4HP fixed base, their isn't any other routers out there that give you 3 1/4HP without going to a plunge base. In a table you preferably want the additional horsepower, even though you usually don't need more than 1 1/2 or 2 horses.
The soft start feature, and having the smart electronics, combined with more power than you need, enables you to have a constant bit speed.

I upgraded to this machine after burning out two on/off switches on my Bosch 1617EVS router.
For the most part, this 1619 resides under a router table. With the extended handle that comes standard with the router, under table adjustments are quick. Roll the large diamer handle between your hands, and the router can be moved up or down about 2 inches in 15 seconds.
I've made about 40 raised panel doors with this router so far, and I really like the power it has. My panel raising bit is 2.5 inches in diameter. I remove about 5/16 in my first pass, and then take off 1/16 to get a nice clean surface. Taking 5/16 in one pass with this large bit does not bog this machine down.
The on/off switch is built into the handle which makes for convenient free-hand operation. The switch is difficult to reach when the machine is mounted under the table, but an auxillary switch on the router table solves that problem.
I also like the built in lock on the spindle. Bits can be changed with only one wrench.

Superb Router! I have mine in a router table. It handles everything extremely well - from the smallest bit to the largest panel cutter. It is relatively quiet, and never bogs down with the electronic speed control. Soft start is excellent, although I don't use mine out of the table much. The depth settings are easily accomplished, repeatable, and accurate. The speed control is a bit of a stretch under the table, but otherwise I can find no fault with this router. It is one of the best tools in my shop. If you want a powerful router with finess, that does just about everything, this is it. A quality 5-star tool in all respects.

There is a bolt that holds the step adjuster to the base. The bolt is held to the base by a compression washer which is visible when you remove the base plate from the router.

Mounted upside down in a table, this washer is the only thing supporting the entire weight of the router. The adjusting rod locks into this step adjuster allowing you to adjust the height of the router from under the table. There is a button that you push to release the spring pressure. A nice feature considering the weight of the router.

This washer slipped off of the bolt and the router dropped like a rock in my table when the machine was running. Luckily I have a paddle switch which allowed for a quick power down.

I returned it to the store and the sales gal called Bosch to see if they have revised this part. I will find out tomorrow if they have redesigned this little bolt. If it was machined with a washer type head to prevent it from slipping through the base, the problem would be solved but there is no way that the compression washer will hold the weight of this machine under a table. Even if they machined a groove in the bolt and used a snap ring to hold it, that would work.

In fairness, it would probably work fine as a plunge router but I would not buy it for use under a router table. If Bosch has not revised this part, I will get a refund and look into another manufacturer. Too bad because it really is a nice machine and it has all the features you would want in a router.

If I hear any positive news, I will update this review.

03/26/2009 - Bosch explained to the store that they had a series of these washers that were undersized and they found their way into the production line. They shipped 2 new washers to the store and we reassembled the router.
