To reduce the risk of serious injury and/or damage to your Festool product, always read, understand and follow all warnings and instructions in your Festool product's Instruction Manual. The collet wrenches go on the left, the “T” Allen wrench (for above-table adjustment) snaps into a holder between the two bases on the bottom.

This is a German tool company, probably manufacturing for Worldwide distribution in Asia, and therefore it is very unlikely that it has an imperial diameter. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. I make my own furniture and just graduated from the Ryobi series where the depth adjustment would jam up every time. Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like there is a standard for router bodies to fit into router bases and tables, and that standard is 3-1/2".Hi folks, Can anybody tell me if the 'Bosch 1617 evspk' is the same as the 'Bosch gmf 1400ce' over here in the U. I know for me, I bought this Router to be mounted in my router table, but I loved it standalone too. There may be a project that requires one or two extra feeds/passes, but for safety reasons, I would probably do that anyway with a larger router or shaper. I never used the cases that came with these routers mostly because the routers are always being used. Plunge depth is controlled with the familiar depth rod with locking knob and sliding indicator and turret.

The Bosch 1617 is rated between 2 - 2-1/4 HP depending on which motor is involved, all are rated at 12 amps. I would have expected to pay in the mid-200-dollar range for a Router of this caliber and performance so for me I can’t see a single thing to complain about cost wise. My understanding is if you don’t get a larger router of a diameter as noted above (the Metabo HPT formerly known as the Hitachi M12VC is popular) you’d need a spindle, either 65mm or 80mm diameter which has an ER-20 collet. Bosch manufactures several optional accessories for this router, included was a chip deflector, 2 chucks, wrenches for the bit and collet changes, and the extended T handle wrench for above table adjustments. Bosch included a microfine bit-depth adjustment to give better control to bit height, something imperative, especially when using the router for operations like joints where every small degree of measure makes a large impact.

Bosch offers a special base unit ( RA1165) designed to be left in the under-table installation so you can install the motor only for those applications. Beyond the legalese, you find clear descriptions of the features and how to use them, supported by well-done illustrations.

HP motor gives the Bosch 1617EVS a slightly heavy feel when lifting it but in operation, it feels deceptively light.Even under this very abnormal load, the Bosch Constant ResponseTM Circuitry kicked in and prevented substantial RPM loss. Pretty clever, actually, if actually transporting the kit to a work site, which I might be doing when helping a friend build his kitchen cabinets some day. I also had trouble with the soft aluminum housing getting scuffed up when inserting it into the fixed base. I have had the opportunity to use a number of branded routers, with my favorite two being Porter-Cable and Bosch.

Things like complex joinery like mortise and tenons and dovetails become fairly simple with a bit of practice.

The Bosch Precision Centering Design allows the bit to be centered with the sub-base or optional template guides.

These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. All I know is I want to attach a spindle that can accommodate at least a 12mm tool, and I would prefer it if it fit the mount I already have. Though it powers through the tough jobs with ease, the Bosch 1617EVS is more than capable of doing fine work as well.
