Still going strong
I have had this router for almost 5 yrs. and it has been in a router table most of that time.I have made everything from small moldings to raised panels using 3 1/2 " bits and a router speed control,This router has never let me down in anything I have tried to do with it.The power is there if and when you need it.Using it for cutting dovetails with a jig the wood handles on the base are comfortable and provide excellent control over the router.I would buy one again if I were to need a new one.

Always gets the job done
The Bosch 1617 fixed-base router ALWAYS gets the job done. Set the collet and it stays. Wooden handles are comfortable and well placed. Unit is very durable.
