John, if you want a Dremel for craft work then that is a good choice. If you want to do routing then a trim router is a much better choice. If you are not sure you can find a cheap trim router for as little as about $20. Since your 1617 will already handle the tasks this sounds like a "more tools" thing. No question that the Bosch Colt is a nice unit. DeWalt offers a trim router for less money that is popular with members. I have a Ryobi trim router that I bought from a flea market for $20 and almost never use it. Although they are lighter weight trim routers are not as stable as a full sized model; something to think about.
