Default Bosch Router kit

I found the Bosch 12 Amp 2-1/4 Combination Horsepower Plunge and Fixed Base Variable Speed Router Kit 1617EVSPK with 1/4-Inch and 1/2-Inch Collets for sale at Amazon for $199. That's the same price as CPO.

Is this a "don't miss" kind of deal, or just an everyday price?

I need a good free-hand router. I currently have a Triton MF001 in a shop-built table and a Freud (model unk) in a Freud table, but both are a bit too big for freehand work.

Thanks,

I bought the kit with fixed and table bases. Paid about the same as you for it. The reconditioned deal you find on ebay occasionally is good (40-50 off) with a new warranty. Used them to construct a router table and a captured tread staircase and then promptly knocked the magnesium fixed base (with the motor in it) off the bench and broke it. Put it back together with JB-Weld but am trying to replace the round base-plate with a rectangular trim base-plate. I saw it somewhere...could anyone provide a link to the procedure for creating a trim base that allows you to cut against a template/fence then turn the base 90deg and trim another 32nd off? Don't want to waste my base plastic doing something stupid.I can't figure out how to get it accurate to the 32nd.

That is a good deal, https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-Combina.../dp/B00005RHPD ,Charles.

Free shipping too.WOW!!!

They must be clearing out the old ones making room for a new model. Buy 2 at that price.

did you know that Amazon, Wally World and the chinese all have jumped into bed together...
did you know that people that get counterfeit goods (mail order) got them through Amazon more often then elsewhere...
did you know that Amazon plays dumb on this issue..
did you know that Amazon doesn't really vet their 3rd party vendors..
did you know that Amazon when they dump a 3rd party vendor they let back in under a new name in nothing flat..
did you know that Amazon is multi tier vending...
