Variable Speed solved my problems

I was attempting to use larger router bits with my fixed speed router. After a little research, I found that you need a variable speed router for larger bits like raised panel bits. I did more research and picked the Bosch 1617EVS mainly because I own other Bosch tools and appreciate the quality of them. Once again, I wasn't disappointed. After I mounted it in my router table and began using it at low speed, I was thrilled to find it didn't bog down and worked smoothly. My panels came out great! I love this router.

Solid and smooth

By 

from Massachusetts, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

I bought this Bosch because I wasn't happy with my DeWalt router because of the sticky plunge action and man what a difference between the two. The Bosch feels so much better in your hand, smooth plunge action, minimum noise level and adjustment is also smooth. I am glad I bought a Bosch brand.

Plenty of power and very high quality construction

By 

from Woodhead IL

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

Bought this to replace an old Craftsman router. It didn't fit my router table, but with a little machine work and careful planning, I made it fit and now my table is better than ever. Bit is easy to change and router is held securely to its base that is fastened to the table. The slower startup speed is a nice feature. The motor is quiet and very powerful. It blasted through a 3/4 oak board with ease.

Great router

Does exactly what a router should do

By 

from Baton Rouge

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

I have not used the router for complex work nor have I used it with a table. The hand held work works great and it has the power to cut deep and smooth with little effort. The large handles give great control for a 2 1/2 hp router.

Good, controllable workhorse

By 

from Fredericksburg, VA, United States

Comments about Bosch Tools 2.25 HP VS Fixed-Base Router:

I've had one of these for several years. It is strong and accurate in both the fixed base and the router table. The slow start and variable speed features are excellent. I have only two complaints: 1. The motor body sometime soon binds in the base making it hard to adjust the height, and 2. This router is screechingly loud. Hearing protection is essential!
