The Bosch 1617 Router has been out for quite a few years now and has been a solid performer the entire time. When you look at routers, there are two brands that come up quite a bit and have some loyal followers. There is Bosch and Porter Cable. At least those are the two that I have been looking at for a few years now.
The main reason that I really like this 1617 router is it is about as universal of a router that you can get. It works as a stationary base router, you can get a plunge kit for it, plus it works with most router lifts.
If you are new to routing, or want to get started, there are somethings you need to think about before you jump into it. I unfortunately did not know what I needed to think about when I started, so I have made some poor choices in my past. Now I feel that I have reached routing nirvana.
