I use the RA1165 Base under my table. Once I had the RA1165 Base in hand I realized that it was really just the RA1161 fixed based that came with my with my 1617EVSPK sans the wooden knobs and black subbase. I've no idea if Bosch modified the RA1161 at some point in time, but if bet if you pull the subbase off your RA1161 you will see the opening that accepts the hex key.

That is exactly what they did. After seeing it I sent mine back in order to use the fixed base I already had. Just take off the baseplate and you're good to go!

Hi Richard

I don't have the Bosch but MANY of the new routers have the same setup like the Craftsman that have it on all the bases,plunge,D-handle,fix base ,so to say you can use any base for the router table setup with the lift kit built into all of them..
