No load rpm: 25;000; 11 amp. Classic hardwood handles for comfort and beauty. Includes RA1161 fixed-base with system for adjusting bit height from above a router table.


Often copied but never equaled, the Bosch 1617 revolutionized the mid-size fixed-base router category: designed for a broad range of routing applications. The versatile 1617 was the first router in its class to have a 2.0 (Max.) horsepower rating, linear depth adjustment and numerous other routing innovations the powerful 11 Amp motor with its rated speed of 25,000 RPM handles tough routing jobs. Precision Centering Design makes it easy to keep bit on intended outline when using jigs, templets, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices. Macro and microfine Bit Depth Adjustment System with resettable depth indicator for fast, precise depth adjustment. Large 3-3/4 in. base opening plus 2 in. subwoofer opening accepts large bits. Right or left switch location for user preference and consistency (motor does not rotate during depth adjustment). One-piece Armature Shaft for accuracy and long bit shank capacity. 10 ft. flexible rubber cord. Classic hardwood handles for comfort and beauty. Now includes RA1161 fixed-base with system for adjusting bit height from above a router table. The unit’s RA1161 fixed base features a quick-clamp system for fast, tool-free depth adjustments, and its linear microfine bit-depth adjustment system allows for accurate depth adjustment over the depth range of 1-5/8 in. because the motor isn’t rotated during depth adjustment, (as it is on dated depth adjustment systems on many older routers), the horizontal location of the bit within the subwoofer or optional Templet guides remains unchanged. Optional RA1126 quick-change Templet guide adapter (sold separately) for fast and easy change of Bosch RZ1-series Templet guide (or threaded Templet guides, if optional RA1100 adapter is also used). T-Handle Adjustment Wrench sold separately. Fixed base has threaded holes for mounting to router table positioned in common 3-hole pattern. The base’s advanced bit-height adjustment system allows you to conveniently adjust the bit height from above the router table. The 1617 is durable and built for years of use. The motor housing and bases are made of aluminum, and the power switch is now completely dust-sealed.
