Default Bosch Router 1161EVS anyone used one?

I ran across a used Bosch router that is is almost new shape. It is a monster plunge router. It runs on 220 and the guy is asking $100. for it.
From what I can tell there is not a lot of info on line about it has anyone ever used one and what is your opinion.

I once saw a 220V router from across the pond for sale cheap on my local Craigslist and contemplated picking it up... but then I got to thinking about all the things I *don't* know about UK power... I mean, I know it's 220 but I'm guessing one leg is ground and one leg is hot. Here with our 240v, both legs are hot at 120V, just out of phase.

If the case was wired to the UK's "ground" leg, here it'd be at 120V. Using *that* router would be a *shocking* experience!!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

That may be true if it came across the pond I never thought of that.
It does have a standard 3 prong 120 plug on it. . The guy that has it, set up a dedicated 220 plug for it and said it is a great router but he is an older gentleman and he said it is just too heavy for him to handle that is why he is selling it. I am thinking it may be a great router table motor. I am interested in it but may check into it further before I buy it.

Hi

If it is a 3 Pin Plug then it is a uk model from over here, the 3 wires in the plug are

:- Brown or Red for the same Pin is Live

:- Blue is Neutral

:- Green and Yellow is Earth

It will also have a 13 Amp Fuse

Hope this helps

Dave

But Jim, it's clearly marked "double insulated"
