Default Stick is this a good deal ?

http://www.amazon.ca/Bosch-1617EVSPK...7+bosch+router

Regular price of $650 seems a little over inflated , even in Canada ? But $290 seems ok

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

That's 250.04 USD. Going for $219.00 here. But beats $650 for sure!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Hi Rick,

Last october I shopped around for this kit and the best price I found at the time was $289 (Summit Tools here in prov. of Quebec). I shopped in the tools stores and on the internet across Canada. So my guess is that $290 is a good price.

My .02$ (cnd)

Best regards,

Jean

this is all I have to compare it to...

Factory Reconditioned Bosch 1617EVSPK-RT 12 Amp 2.25 HP Combination Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....
