Default New vs Old 1617...?

Ran into this video...apparently 1617's are different nowadays...?

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1QeRpzKfnTo

I happen to like the round wooden knobbies and don't like the slide contacts...

Am I a dinosaur...? Is this old news...?

Your thoughts...? I was planning on waiting to continue building my retirement inventory but maybe I should get while the getting's good...?

Thanks in advance...Nick

EDIT...Ok...just reviewed the video and noticed comments that are 3 years old...DUH...I guess all the images I've seen show the wooden knobbies ... Why am I lost...?

Nick; there's several versions of the Bosch 1617. The straight 1617 doesn't have some of the newer features...more HP and electronic speed control(?)
I recently bought a 1617 EVS...2 1/4 HP and elect. sp. control, but not including the plunge base (for RT mounting).

Thanks, Dan...apparently that is the case...now I'm wondering why I didn't see this while I was looking..."seek and ye shall find"...guess I didn't seek right...

Back to the drawing board...

Okay...the Boschtools site shows the EVSPK in the style and features I expected...CPOOUTLET shows the same (new or reman)...where'd the three year old video come from with all the new stuff...?

I gotta get out more often... :-). Feel like I just met Rod Serling...

...call to Bosch tomorrow !

...but willing to get better educated with input from you guys n gals...

Thanks...

Not nearly.....

dude...
that Bosch in the video is a MRC23EVSPK and not a '17...
and it's a pleasure to use...

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

My 1617EVSPK which is just under 2 years old has the round wood knobs on the fixed base, the plunge base is different.

Thank you...
