I think it's been over a year since there's been a good deal on this Bosch combo kit. Good price for a new, reliable router.

Still my number 1, go-to router. It just seems to be one of those reliable tools that isn't too small or too big. And it will eat any other router out there under $250.

I now use 4 of these regularly, in different variations, (Pantorouter, Slab Flattener, Table Mount, and a deep mortiser.)

This may not be "THE GREATEST DEAL OF ALL TIME...TIMe..TIme...Time...time... " Lol. But for $189, I'm definitely grabbing another.

Thanks OP!!!

OK price but if you have some patience this will come around sub-$170 at some point, usually on the "spend $200, Save $50" offers. Excellent router kit.

Which store are you talking about that offers the "Spend x, save x" deal?

Amazon does those 50 off 200 deals every so often but they also typically raise their prices just before the deal goes active.


I have a 1617 and I really like it but I think I want to wait for a deal on the Bosch MRC23 series kit for handheld use.

Can anyone give me a comparison on this router vs the DeWalt 618?

This kit has sold on Amazon for $169.xx in Oct or Nov the past two years, whether or not they raised the price before the sale I don't know, but the resulting sale price was lower than the OP.

Is this the DeWalt that has a high failure rate when mounted up side down in a router table?

Edit: Yes, apparently it is.

Geat machine and maybe not the lowest price, but definitely a deal with both bases.

Thanks for mentioning this. I was gonna pick up the DeWalt cheaper than this at a pawn shop today but now I won't bother

You are correct, but last time it did was 2019. The price did not drop in 2020. This was the first time it's dropped below $200 in over a year and half. I guess it really depends on if you're willing to wait.

The Bosch can also be adjusted from the top when mounted upside down on a router table via their key tool. I have the DeWalt mounted and it's a pain to do micro adjustments. Been waiting to upgrade to the Bosch.

Not true. Spend 200 / save 50 in Oct 2020
