1619EVS Router Review
This tool from Bosch stood out from the pack of big routers because of its superior design as a table-mounted router
This model stood out from the pack of big routers because of its superior design as a table-mounted router. The plunge-lock lever has a built-in override, so when mounted in a table the router is always free to travel up or down. Another table-related feature is that the return spring can be disabled with the press of a button on the router base, which means you don’t have to fight against the pressure of the spring to adjust the depth of cut. The micro-depth-adjustment knob is meant exclusively for table-mounted operation. Despite its obvious appeal as a table-mounted router, this tool feels comfortable as a handheld router as well. The power switch, plunge action, and tool-free template guides make this router easy to use. It includes a dust port, a one-wrench bit change, and a 3-in. plunge depth.
