welcome to the forum teds. 2-1/4 hp should be plenty for general routing. I have 2 PC 693 1-3/4 hp routers and have had no issues with lack of power.

A person can never have too many tools!

Hi Ted:

I have the Bosch 1617EVSPK 2-1/4 HP router kit and serves me well. No issues with the router bogging down.
