Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent router. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased this a year ago to mount under my table saw . Use it as a quick shaper. Excellent tool. (I own several Bosch tools, some more than 20 years old, which are used regularly. Bosch is a quality tool. Well worth the purchase price for a contractor)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Router [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This router replaced an older tool I inherited from my father. This router, though simple, is a workhorse. I use it regularly and it never fails. Small jobs or big jobs, it’s up to it. It’s comfortable in my hands and plenty powerful. It’s a great router.
