Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality, perfect kit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this kit, as many people do, to attach the fixed base to my router table and use the plunge base for handheld work. This is the only currently router in my shop and it performs very well. Soft start is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding tool! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this a couple of weeks ago and am in love with how it looks and runs. It looks like top quality craftsmanship all in one tool (technically two if you count the plunge base!) Definitely a great router for its price. This was my first Bosch product that i’ve purchased for my woodworking hobby and needless to say it won’t be the last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome tool [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] received mine for Christmas a few years ago, and I cannot say enough good things about this setup! Plenty of power, easy-to-use and easy to setup. Absolutely love the fact that I don't need to purchase a separate router lift to use in a router table! #tellitlikeitis

Bosch 1617 EVS router will not fit Bosch RA1181 router table.

Per the router table instructions, the Bosch 1617 router holes in the base plate will align with holes “B” in the table mounting plate. They don’t align and I cannot get any 3 holes to align. I did remove the plastic base plate from the router per the instructions. Any ideas?
Asked by: PaulB
Make sure you are using the fixed base to mount it. I don't think it will line up if you are trying to mount the plunge base. I found it easier if you remove the wooden handles to mount it.
