Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set I had bought another manufactures router and on inspection I ended up returning it. Decided to bite the bullet and get a good one. Glad I did. Handles well and easy set up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well The Bosch Router works very well. I had read many reviews that stated this item was well built and unless you wanted to spend 1000$ this one was the one to buy. The only thing I would say made this lose a star is the electrical cord prongs are to easily bent, and changing router bits can be time consuming. The router was easily adjustable and the motor housing unit is very easily removed. Have not tried this router on a router table yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This router does it all A true classic, this router has seen many versions and has been refined over time. The accuracy of the adjustments are unmatched, the soft start makes it easy to work with and the option of both the plunge and fixed bases, combined with the 1/4 and 1/2" collet, make this router immensely versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router How many routers do you need? Three? Fixed base, plunge base, and router table. This router does them all. 2.5hp has plenty of oomph so far, and it is so quick and easy to change between the bases and router table. Bosch makes great tools. This is no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Router Works great, a lot of power and also variable speed. I only used it for notching 6X6s so far but it worked great. I plan on using it with the Bosch router table to create kitchen cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Router. Easy to switch back and forth between bases, and plenty of power for what I do. @beavercreekcustoms ok Instagram
