Bosch recently introduced routers that they claim have the highest power-to-weight ratio in the industry. We believe them. The 1617EVSB variable-speed router features a stout, 2-1/4 HP motor coupled with an aluminum base and housing. The result is a well-balanced and smooth-operating machine that offers fast results in demanding applications. We love the nicely finished hard-maple handles that make this router feel like a fine-woodworking tool. Something Bosch engineers are proudest of is what they call the precision centering system, which makes the router bit track at true center. It's an important feature for multiple-pass applications, like jig cutting, and fine woodworkers will particularly appreciate it.

  1. Variable Speed solved my problems Review by Chip

    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.

  2. Great Router Review by Jon B.

    I got this router to add some detail to my woodworking projects. With a second fixed base mounted to a router table, this router serves double duty. The micro adjustments are great for making fine adjustments. The tools feels great when in use, nice balance and plenty of power. (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  3. Easy to use Review by Mickfig

    I bought this router for my Krieg router table. It is easy to set up and fine adjustments are quick. Well worth the money (Posted on 9/26/2013)

  4. Very user friendly. Review by marintheman

    This router is used in conjunction with the Bosch router table I recently purchased. The two go very well together. (Posted on 9/26/2013)
