I have had a Skil and currently own a Bosch 1617EVSPK and Porter Cable (a few of them).

I would pick the Bosch 1617EVSPK any day of the week if all I wanted was a powerful, well-built router. In terms of most off the shelf compatibility, the Porter Cable is better, but it just doesn’t feel like the Bosch.

You can get the 1617 at the big box stores or, like I did, on Amazon for cheap.
