Handle a broad range of routing applications with the versatile Bosch 1617EVSPK Plunge and Fixed-Base Variable-Speed Router Kit.

Take care of even tough routing jobs with the powerful 2.25 HP/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 routing task and material. And with built-in Constant Response Circuitry, your router will maintain a constant speed throughout the cut, so you get cleaner, more accurate results.
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.

It works great, smooth start up, powerful enough with variable speed for all of my needs. It does have some weight to it, but I like that it allows me to keep it on track.
I haven't had any of the problems that others experience with the motor binding/locking in the bases.
The only real 'negative' that I'd give was the fact that you have to buy so many various accessories for basic functions like edge guided routing or templates.
The 2 HP unit has plenty of power to be used in a router table a nd if you can only afford one router don't skimp for a few dollars more you get more power, variable speed and the bosch 2 HP variable speed router with the micro fine adjustments.
I have had the 1617EVS fixed based for over 6 months and the extra cost to buy the plunge router attachment added up to more than this whole kit with the storage case costs.
17Feb2014. I read tons of reviews and my decision came down to the Bosch 1617EVSPK and the 618PK DeWalt. I chose the Bosch out of pure trust in the reviews and two features I talk about below. I have run around 5 different bits on the regular scrap materials in the garage and this is as quiet as my top of the line miter saw from DeWalt. It is multiple times quieter than my circular saw. I'm very impressed with the full speed noise as I can do router work while the baby sleeps inside of the house. Very awesome. The only problem I have right now is when I loosen the collet, it free spins for a rotation, then it gets tight again. Kind of a pain when I am testing it out and learning. I imagine this is something with all router collets as you are loosening something spinning 24k rpm. The plunge base is strong. Although, it is a consistent resistance all the way to the bottom allowing for muscle memory to make a consistent plunge cut. Adjusting the depth stop on the plunge base is a little different that what I am used to but I haven't used it yet, so I will have that figured out in a day or so. The fix base is very nice. The wooden handles make this router very classy and might have helped win me over. The course adjustment is very nice to speed up the bit movement. The fine tuning is just fine. It works great for handheld use. This also has the "above the table" adjustment that supports full table mounting. This is another feature that supported my purchase. Long term is always considered when I make purchases.
I'll update more after I put more hours on this but I doubt I'll be making any changes.
