With respect bill the new ones and next generation ones are selling for less than 200. I got mine for 170. It is a great router however. Anyone would be lucky to have it

@Kaleb: The M12V was around $300 when I bought it and came with the accessories. I suppose I should drop my price because of the current crop of routers out there.

@Rick: You sound like me with my three Bosch 1617EVS routers. I also have a new PC in my new router lift, three trim routers and an old Craftsman I inherited from my father. That’s why I’d like to find a home for the M12V. ;-)

Now you sound like me…...Besides the two M12V’s, I have a DeWalt trim router, one old Craftsman I used to have mounted in my table (till I replaced it with an M12V), and one Porter Cable, which I’m going to give to my son…..I think we are router poor…..........But then again, A1Jim has about 35 routers…..So we have a ways to go to catch him….......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my case, having three 1617EVS routers is one of those “stuff happens” things. When I built my first router table, I bought one based on reviews and it worked great. A year or so later, I wanted to upgrade from my contractor table saw to a 3hp cabinet. An acquaintance is the Jet rep where I lived; Jet was running a deal with a reduced price for the JTAS10, plus extension table, router lift and router – yep, the 1617EVS. I still didn’t have a plunge base router and needed one a year later, so I bought the 1617EVS-PK with motor, plunge and fixed bases. So, I ended up with three 1617EVS, three fixed bases and one plunge base. The neighbor I had at the time, a fellow woodworker, accused me of watching Norm too much!

Having said all that that, let’s see…..A1Jim…35 routers…nope…won’t even try to catch him!!!
