Default Bosch 60326C870 POF 1400 ACE Router

Hi everyone,
I'm thinking of buying a Bosch 60326C870 POF 1400 ACE Router and it will be table mounted.
I have read somewhere with the 1200 version there isn't a button to lock the power on making it unusable on a table. Is this true of the 1400 version - I've looked at the manual and can't see anything about this

Hello again Martin. You must hail from the UK as that is where my search says that router is sold. It would be different at least as the electrical parts go as we are 60 cycle, 15 amps, 120 volts on our circuits here in North America. It may also have different features. At 1400 watts it would be similar to the 1617 sold here but I don't know how similar they are. Maybe one of our UK members knows if there are differences.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Hi Martin, I believe the 1400 is the same as the 1200, you have to hold the trigger.
If you can stretch your budget to the Triton MOF001, that's an excellent 1400W router for table mounting: compared to the green Bosch, you gain above-the-table bit changing and height adjustment, an easily removable plunge spring, and most importantly a 1/2" collet.

Like Andy stated a 1/2" collet is important. I wouldn't buy a router without a 1/2" collet. It's even more important when using it in a router table.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.
