Combing large router power and a maneuverable, lightweight package, the Bosch 1617EVS Fixed-Base Electronic Router is sure to become your "go to" router after just a couple of uses. The 2.25HP motor offers all the power you need for most common routing jobs, and the precision depth adjustment system makes this router as user friendly and versatile as they come. The large base and sub base openings allow you to use the larger router bits that are so popular among woodworkers, and even long shank bits aren't a problem thanks to the single piece armature shaft design. When it comes to using a router, precision is king; and the Bosch 1617EVS features an exclusive bit centering design that keeps the bit perfectly aligned when using templates and jigs. Combine that with a constant response circuitry motor with soft start, and you've got yourself a great combination of power and versatility in the Bosch 1617EVS Fixed-Base Electronic Router.
