Default Bosch 1617 EVSPK 2.25 HP Router Combo Kit

It seems like the question is asked several times a week - "What kind of router do I need?" Or, "I want to buy a new router but I don't know which one".

Instead of typing basically the same response time and and time again, I decided to create a pdf file of the specs for the Bosch 1617 and include some of my personal pictures of the router in use.

I have attached the file for anyone interested in a new router. I have two complete combo kits and use them often - either in a table, or cutting dovetails or routing dadoes or edge trimming. I have never had any problems.

Thanks
Mike

Wow Mike
That's a lot of work! And, very well done. It should save a lot of time in the long run.

Default Thank You Mike

Mike,

Thanks for all the time and effort you gave to provide such an awesome, informative article. I have been attempting to gather the same info for myself, and one does not realize the time involved to put it all in one package.

Thanks once again, just GREAT!
Don
