Normally $219- 250 range. Arguably legendary corded router that can last a lifetime. 179 is close to its all time low of 178.49 back in 2014.

MLCS makes a 1/2 bit kit that are medium quality and fantastic value. Get yourself a set, then add on specific bits when you need them. I've bought like 4 bits outside of my original set over 8 years. If you're working without a dado stack in your table saw, then I highly recommend getting a 23/32" straight-cutting bit, it makes dados for 3/4" plywood construction a breeze, and you get a tight fit in one pass.

Thanks OP, but I saw Home Depot had the same offer and I get additional 3% off when using my Capital One Quicksilver card going that route and it includes a carrying case.

This is a pretty good deal, though I think the lowest it's gone was $159 last November. https://slickdeals.net/f/15368524-bosch-2-25-hp-router-combo-kit-1617evspk-159

Got one. I'm surprised by the case and the quality and everything. My previous router is a Ryobi trim router. I'm in love with it.

This is a great deal. I ended up getting the non plunge base version as well and the Bosch table so that I did not have to move the router in and out. that was on sale in Dec for about 109 after a 20 off promo

I have a small palm router, but looking to upgrade to a full router table setup. Is this the right size for a powerful router table setup?

Yes this is great. I also have both this set up and a battery palm router and while you could use this (Bosch) for all, it's great to have an easy quick palm router for the edge routing.
