About this deal

The kit includes 1/2-inch and 1/4-inch self-releasing collets, templet guide adapter, and comfortable drop-forged wrenches. I already have a router for my router table, this will be for inlays, edge routing on large projects, and other things.

Saw the Bosch 1617 router combo at Lowe's for 219, but it was not the 1617evspk, which comes with a free edge guide/ circle cutter and also lists as 2 hp, may be the same motor, but I want the newer, updated router .The fine-depth adjustment on the fixed base is excellent and easy to use, offering very precise adjustments.

Not enough to change my rating though, since all it took was a little compressed air around the switch to get it working again. I had considered hanging the router off of the splinter guard side, but not using a subbase to fasten it more securely to the router.If you have a bad back and a enclosed router table and use your router daily, a lift may be worth the money to you.

It has softer start than the Bosch and a light which the Bosch doesn't have, newer models of the Bosch may have better soft start and a light. This fixture makes that very straight forward, and very repeatable when doing multiple routes of the same dimension (second image, routing cut outs in progress for the inner front panel of an LF module for a high end speaker system. The second time I had to use Electric cleaning spray, found at your Pepboys, near the brake cleaner sprays.

Additionally, the Porter Cable jig I am looking at has guides that will fit the Dewalt but from other forums, not the Bosch directly. Users can glide along the intended cutline using dovetail fixtures, templates, jigs and other guidance devices. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. hp combination plunge-and fixed-base router has the power to get results, with a 12 A motor and adjustable speed settings.
