I am planning to upgrade my table mounted router. I need to increase the horsepower for larger panel raising bits. I am looking at the
Bosch 1617EVSTB Router Package. I am wondering if any of you have experience with this one. I like the fact that it comes with its own base to raise and lower from the table top. This seems as if it would save a lot of $$$$. I have been a huge fan of Porter Cable over the last few years, but I understand that the 2 1/4 horse now comes with plastic gears to raise and lover the motor…..this does not sound that it bodes well for longevity and precision. Any advice is appreciated.
