Default New Router and Table

Last Tuesday my Bosch R1617EVSTB combo arrived.
This set has the 1617 Fixed-base (RA1161) and the table base (RA1165).

I had the Bosch RA1181 Router Table already assembled and mounted the router on Saturday morning with no problem. Did some test cuts and the rig works fine.

I also was able to find the RA1002 Fine Adjustment Knob which is no longer made.
So I can fine tune the height from above on the table base and also on the fixed base.

These are welcome additions to my workshop.

That sounds awesome. I haven't had the pleasure of owning a Bosch tool yet, however, their reputation precedes them.
