IIRC the switch problem was fixed a while ago. A lemon still slips through, but all in all, the 1617 is a great router. The smoothest I’ve used.

If the switch does quit on you, compressed air has been known to fix it. Using an auxiliary table switch helps a lot too.

@MonteCristo; the original 1617’s had a magnesium body that corroded; this is probably what you’re experiencing. Bosch recalled the early 1617’s and replaced the housing with aluminum. Call bosch; they will make it right.
