Found the Bosch 1617 EVSPK on sale today at Lowes. $189 is the lowest price I've seen for a new tool. Yes you can get it for less refurbished, but you can drive over and pick this up today.

Available on the Lowe's web site for same money, so it's not a local deal. Must be a change in the minimum from Bosch--CPO also dropped it to $189. Refurbs at CPO are still $175, so i'd expect those to drop to the $150 range soon. I'm glad i don't have a need--or even a want right now!!

Why would the price drop?

Do you think Bosch could be coming out with a new model?

Either way it's good news if I get around to build a router table and want another router.

It may not be a price drop to Bosch, they might be selling to the retailer or distributor at the same wholesale price--or maybe they reduced their wholesale some. Like many manufacturers, they contract to a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) with the retail market so there is a level playing field among authorized distributors. That has apparently been $219, and has been lowered to $189, at least (as Stick pointed out) for the moment. The retailers, of course, are free to charge more than the minimum--and there are those who would pay it. Me...i'm too cheap!!

I think Lowes is marking down most Bosch tools - a couple of weeks ago, in Florida, I saw the 1617EVSPK for $189, the JS365 jig saw for $99, the JS260 jig saw for $79 and the 1HP Colt for $99.

These prices are still showing up on Lowes website.

I also saw the 1HP Colt at my local woodworking store here in the Niagara Region (Ontario) for $129. - that's Canadian

This price is available at CPO and Amazon as well. Bosch also has a promo of $20 off $100 on select tools. I just bought the Bosch 470 jigsaw, which qualifies for the $20 off, and I paid 145 total including shipping. That is new, no reconditioned were available. I have been wanting it for a while and with the reduced prices and the $20 off, you can't beat the price. The Bosch deal ends on March 29th so time is running out.

Yes. And since I can't stand Hollandaise sauce, the bacon issue is irrelevant...the sauce has touched it. ;)

I know it's heresy, but I'm not obsessive about bacon...as long as it's not overcooked, smothered in other crap, or touched by Hollandaise sauce. Other than that I'm good (I've probably forgotten a few reject factors)

I don't understand the obsession with bacon either. Sure it's alight but way overrated.

WRONG BACON always gets my attention. You just can't have wrong bacon. Bacon is one of the main ingredients. Don't you know everything is better with bacon.
it's not covering the muffin nor is there very much o it...
that makes it wrong...

Herb when I go to CPO I am still showing 189 for the 1617 evspk. That is the model with the plunge and fixed base. There is another model which has the adjustable base and it sells for 219 I think. But their price on the 1617 evspk is still the best I can find since they don't charge tax. Amazon charges tax in Ohio.
