I have the Dewalt 618 kit w fixed base and plunge base. It is a great router. It will handle both the 1/4 and 1/2 in bits. The plunge action is smooth and it handles like a dream. I also own the Bosch 1617 combo with the fixed and plunge base. I liked how the Bosch felt and purchased it. I plan on mounting the fixed base Bosch into my router table.

I don’t think you can go wrong with either set. I don’t know too much about the other Bosch you mention other than it gets great reviews on other forums.

I also own a Porter Cable H100 router that I use for routing signs. It is a quality router too.

Find one that feels good to you and get it. Each brand has their quirks. The Dewalt 611 is a great router too!

Again, whether you choose Dewalt, Porter Cable, or Bosch…it comes down to what feels good in your hands.

Good Luck,
