The Bosch 1617EVSPK gives you the best of both the fixed-base and plunge router worlds! It features a 12 Amp, 2-1/4 HP, 8,000 to 25,000 rpm (No-load) motor with plunge base and fixed base in a rugged well-organized carrying case. This kit features the exclusive quick-clamp system, allowing tool-free movement of motor from base to base. Other key features include variable speed, soft-start, and Constant Response circuitry that maintains speed under load. The depth adjustment system features coarse and micro fine bit depth adjustment with re-settable indicators. Both bases have large base openings with 2- in. Sub-base openings, accepting larger bits and providing better visibility. The routers' right or left switch and cord locations provide both choice and consistency, and the motor does not rotate during depth adjustment.

Additional Features

  • Versatile kit that serves a broad range of routing applications
  • 2.25 HP/ 12 Amp motor 8000 to 25000 RPM - most powerful in its class
  • Variable speed dial for matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Soft-start reduces start-up torque
  • Quick clamp system on both bases for fast tool-free conversion allows moving motor from base to base with ease

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid and Smoothe I use the plunge base a lot do add keyhole slots to our products. The action on on the plunge base is smooth and handle very well. The router itself is very quiet and nice. The only things I don't like are: 1. I wish it came with a set of bushings. 2. I wish there was an LED light for when I need to see the blade meeting the wood.  March 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Router I bought this product a couple months ago and am sure glad I did! Very powerful machine and easy to use depth adjustment. The plastic shield is okay, it doesn't have a very secure fit. I got tired of putting it back on every time it popped off so I just left it off. March 7, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great power I purchased the 1618evspk and decided to use it as a base mount on my router table cause I wanted more power and a changeable collet. Really disapointed when I discovered it has no shaft lock button to change bits. Have to use both wrenches and is a pain in rear! March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a machine! I owned one of these years ago and loved it. Recently I need to put a rounded edge on some oak baseboard and bought a new one. Still the same great machine - smooth, powerful and accurate. February 25, 2014
