Detailed Description

Bosch 1617EVS 2 HP VS Router

Bosch's routers are sweet machines, with all the power you need for routing on any scale and state of the art features that rank them among the most user-friendly routers on the market. 12-amp soft-start motors run at speeds from 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. Constant-torque circuitry guarantees full power at any speed regardless of load. Model 1618EVS is a D-handle design, providing positive control of the machine, and putting a trigger switch right under your index finger; it's fine for any hand-held work, and is ideal for use with dovetail jigs and other template-guide operations. Model 1617EVS has 2 close-in polished wood handles positioned low on the base for superb control.

Depth of cut is set with one of the best systems we've seen on fixed-based routers: a threaded micro-adjuster gives you visible, repeatable accuracy on a scale smaller than 1/256". A quick-release clamp locks the motor in the base for very rapid macro-adjustment in 1/2" increments. The motor rotates 180° within the base to get the power cord out of your way, or (on 1617EVS) to put the switch and speed control at your right or left fingertips. Bosch's quick-connect Clic Template Guides mount accurately concentric around bits, and sub-bases are mounted with pan-head screws so you can center them perfectly for jig guided work. Precision-milled magnesium base and lower motor housings are not only much stronger than aluminum but so light that the 1618EVS weighs only 7.5 lbs.

Deep-bored spindles allow safe, stable mounting of every bit shank without bottoming out, no matter how long; standard 1/2" & 1/4" (optional 8mm & 3/8") collets hold bits securely and release them reliably. Model 1618's reversible auxiliary handle makes the router equally comfortable for left or right-handed use.
