I've used this kit many times in the past 5 years. In general the quality and performance a just fine. The plunge base is a little "sticky" sometimes but it's just a minor problem. The switches however are another issue. They clog with dust and won't work unless you remove and clean them. I own two other Bosch routers and they too have needed their switches removed and cleaned. The Bosch edge guide and circle cutter also work well. Power is adequate and handling is also fine. Switch position could be better.
