Over at Amazon, the Bosch 1617EVSPK woodworking router combo kit is back on sale.
It was $169.15 for Prime Day, but sold out rather quickly. At the time of this posting, there’s a ~4-week shipping ETA, which suggests it’s been backordered.
The Bosch router combo kit comes with a 12A 2.25 HP motor, wood-handled fixed base, and a plunge base.
The router motor features a variable speed dial and can operate at 8,000 to 25,000 RPM. It’s compatible with 1/2″ and 1/4″ router bits, you just need to use the correct collet – both are included.
This is the router combo kit I purchased, and I’d buy it again today without hesitation.
While $169 and change isn’t the router combo’s all-time low price, it’s better than the typical sale price of $179. The router combo was $177 to $179 last year on Black Friday.
Most other retailers have the router combo kit priced at $199 right now.
Sale Price: $169.15
Bosch has come out with newer and more modern designs, but this model remains my favorite. I’ve used the same motor in my router table and with the handheld bases, and it’s great either way.
