    Can I add the plunge attachment for the 1617evspk to my fixed based 1617evs? I saw the plunge attachment for sale as a separate item and was hoping to add it to my tools.
  2. General Routing
    Hello, I am in the market for a router, and have read a lot on this forum and other sites. For now, I am planning for mostly hand-held use, but hope to add a router table sometime in the future. I have narrowed it down to 2 options (for my sanity): 1) Bosch MRC23EVSK 2) Bosch 1617EVSPK No...
  3. Table-mounted Routing
    Got the plate, bought the 1617 EVSPK combo that doesn't have the above-table height adjustment hex wrench. If you buy the RA1165 base, you get the hex key. I've got the RA1161 fixed base, and Bosch says the key can be used with that base. An amazon reviewer who bought the RA1165 base said it's...

    :)Hello folks! I'm new to the mysteries of routing, other than a few attempts many years back. I'm recently retired and have built a workshop to house my two Shopsmiths and their attachments. Last week I bought a nice routing table at Grizzly.com, which I am preparing to assemble. I'm...

    Hello fellow wood crafters! Ok, well maybe I am not a crafter just yet as I am just getting my wood working shop built up in my two car garage. The space is limited as it doubles for storage on the shelves I built along the back wall, has a full sized side by side refrigerator/freezer, a chest...

    I am excited to find a forum dedicated entirely to routing. I am a woodworking beginner: recently bought a miter saw, circular saw, drill, jigsaw, and am using a borrowed table saw until I can justify the purchase of one. For Christmas this year, I have asked for (and likely will receive) a...
