Bosch router table question
I need some help picking out a router for my new Bosch RA 1171 router table.
I have several routers in my shop. I had planned on using an old Bosch 1613 EVS plunge router.
But evidently thereís a change in the current 1613 series. My old router wonít fit the pre drilled holes pattern on the baseplate.
The only router I have that will fit is a PC 690.
The list of compatible routers is: Bosch 1613, and 1617 series. DeWalt, DW616, and 618. Hitachi M12VC. Makita RF1100, 1101. Milwaukee 5615, 5616. Porter cable 690, 7529, and 892-895 series.
Also Ryobi, Skill , and Craftsman models, which I really donít want.
I want to do raised panel cabinet doors. I have the door cutter set already. Iím sure that I need variable speed for the raised panel bit.
What would the best of the listed routers be?
And could I use one of the plug in router variable speed control cords that are available, with the PC 690 router?
