Features

The BOSCH® 1617EVSPK 2-1/4 HP Plunge and Fixed Base Router Combo Kit is an ideal tool for carving and cutting wood. The router power tool is powered by a 2.25 HP, 12 amp motor that can be set for speeds from 8,000 to 25,000 RPM -- kept consistent by Bosch's Constant Response™ circuitry -- to suit a wide range of jobs and wood types. The soft-start motor minimizes the router's torque on start-up to prevent an initial loss of control. This router power tool is excellent for precise work, like mortices, with both coarse and microfine bit height adjustment and wide bases with large openings for good visibility. The large base openings also allow for larger bit sizes. The precision centering design helps to keep the bit on target and makes using templates easy.The quick clamp system on the bases makes changing the motor without tools fast and simple. The router power tool is adjustable in each base to allow for left- or right-handed access to the dust-sealed power switch and soft-grip handles make it easy to control. The fixed base can be mounted to a wide range of router tables with the typical 3-point pattern. The included carry case is sturdy and contains all the router components. This Bosch 1617EVSPK plunge and fixed base router kit is a flexible tool for your woodworking needs.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This router is a workhorse! I have two of these router and have used them for years. If I ever have to replace one it will be with another 1617evs. Very versatile and can handle delicate hinge mortises to hogging out lots of material in a single pass. The only problem I've had is dust in the on/off switch. A little light cleaning and they are ready to go again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all around Bought the router about a year ago when I started getting into DIY loud speaker design, using it for cutting holes with a circle jig, flush trim edges of the speaker boxes, and to put round overs. Throughout the year I've used it on many different applications with great success. No complaints here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going strong after nearly 5 years I bought this kit back in 2012 as I was just getting into woodworking on a more regular basis. There were a lot of options to choose from, but this frequently came up as one of the most highly reviewed router kits available, so I took the plunge (pun intended) and purchased it locally. Let's go ahead and clear the air immediately with the only two things I'm not particularly fond of. 1) the wooden knobs on the fixed base tend to come a little loose and need occasional tightening. 2) Sliding the motor in either base can be a little frustrating at times. Now, neither of the issues above is a deal-breaker by any means, and the first one is completely negated in my case because I have the fixed base mounted under my router table. The plunge base is a joy to use, very comfortable and intuitive. Both the 1/2" and 1/4" collets are high quality, and have never loosened on me after being initially tightened. I've also used this router to make raised panels and ogee rail and stile doors, and found it had ample power for the task. The variable speed and fine adjustment on the fixed base make it an excellent option if you're looking for both a router table and plunge router solution. Accessories from third parties for this kit will, however, require the approriate adapters from Bosch. For example, I have a Porter Cable dovetail jig, and needed the Bosch collar adapter to use the supplied collars from Porter Cable. After that, no problem. I love this kit so much I doubt I'll replace it for anything other than failure. I may end up getting a second motor, just so I can keep one in each base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of set-up and adjustment I am currently building an Executive desk for our son which calls for multiple shaker style rail and stile joints on the pedestals. I have the router mounted on the Bosch RA1181 table and with this combination I have had excellent results and a perfect fit every time. I especially like the feature of fine tuning using the through table. Only wish I had purchased this quality set-up years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and easy to use It's a well made router. It performs very well, it's easy to handle, and it has enough power to handle the tougher species of wood. The clear plastic shield can collect dust and make it hard to see sometimes when working freehand, but a coat of good wax every now and then stops that. I bought a 1611 EVS when they first came out on the market many years ago and it works as well today as it did when it was new! I expect the same experience from this one. In other words, I see the same level of quality built into the 1617EVSPK as I did when I bought the 1611EVS.
