  • Best router under $100

    Thoughts?

    About to send it on the Bosch

    Bosch Blue LIne usually are good tools, but I do not know that router. I myself use bigger plunge routers and just bought a Triton MOF001 for 199€, what I already like is the depth setting features, especially the ability to mount it under a table top and adjust the depth from above..., lokks solid and gave a good impression by now, still no long time experience, but look and feel, sound etc. is much better than my previous "home depot router".
    What I like about the Bosch shown is the small size, which may be handy for quick and tiny work.

      I myself use Bosch PR20EVSK. I'm satisfied about the features and benefits of it. I have found no problems since I have unpacked the kit and have been using for about one and half years.

        Not to knock bosch, I have their 1617, but if you plan on using normal(porter-cable) bushings you need either a different base plate or their proprietary bushing system. It's not really a big deal performance wise, but had I known and planned for that I would have bought a porter-cable from the start.

        I do use a small trim router like that more than my 1617 when I build my boards. Way easier for trimming decks and routing fin box holes.
