Hey Guys,

I'm still here. Have just been knocked down with a dose of the 'flu and was not really interested in getting out of bed and reading the internet

Thanks for ALL the great feedback.

I need to sit down and try to absorb it all, before trying to sort out my problem.

Thanks for the comments

Good to hear from you. I know exactly how you feel. I was hit twice this season with "pollenitis" , as they call it down here in the South. I didn't want to get out of bed, and didn't for several days.

Get well.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Default Did you ever get this sorted?

Sorry to jump in on an old thread, I have a Ryobi 1600W plunge router (Bunnings purchase - like HD for our American friends) I would like to use on a table, but am rather hesitant.
First issue is the no-lock power controls. I'd have to cable-tie the trigger on to use the separate power controls for the table.

Second is I'm not sure about controlling the height - I'm thinking of the scissor-lift as previously pictured, as it's cheap and may be ok. Or a Raizer from Timbecon, if I think it would work. I may email those guys to get their opinion.

Sadly, as much as I love this router, I was a little mis-informed by Bunnings (and I'm not the only one), as they claimed it could go in a table.

It certainly seems like I'd need to have some serious adjustments done to make that so (mostly power controls - and I'm no sparky).

Would be interested to hear how you got on.

Sadly, the Bosch 1617 is ONLY available in the USA.

I guess it is back to the drawing board for me

It's an M3600G single-speed router and I bought it for mounting in the table I've since built.
Not expensive, from Total Tools, and it may be worth a look for yourself.

I love my Ryobi RRT1600W - I have done a bit with it so far. The variable speed I haven't used a lot, but I love the soft-start and it's been good to work with as a hand-held router.

Default Easy to remove

Hello,
sorry to exhume this thread but you said that springs easy to remove on the Ryobi RRT1600...
Can someone explain to me how?
(I admit that despite the plan I do not know what is the process).

Thank you very much for your help
Nicolas

Good stuff Nicolas. Sorry nobody got back to you on that. If you have the time and inclination, would you post the steps you took to remove the springs? It may help others who are looking to do a similar job with theirs.

Ok :-)

At first I tried to remove the hexagonal screws (74) that are at the base of the columns but the base did not disassemble. I guess that the columns had been mounted in force.
I removed the top cover (46) by removing the 6 screws.
I desolidarized the central part (43) by removing the 4 screws (some of them are hidden by the electric wires). Now we can lift and turn a little the central part (including the engine block), enough to access the circlips (56) that hold the columns.

After removing the springs I reassembled all (do not forget to remove the carbon brushes (41) before, otherwise it blocks the reassembly).
Not very difficult, even for me ^^.

(sorry for the mistakes, I'm french and I don't speak english very well so... google translate is my friend and sometimes there is some failures lol).

Hi, I did not want to make a suggestion, as I have the previous model, which may be completely different. But in a number of routers, I have been able to access the springs by removing the roll pins that secure the base to the guide rods. Less complicated than a complete strip-down.
