[Home Depot] Bosch 2-1/4HP Combination Plunge/Fixed-Base Router ($236.88 at HD after PM) 1617EVSPK

Hi all, pretty good deal for an all round solid, well-reviewed woodworking router. RONA is selling it for $263.20 - PMed at HD to bring it down to $236.88 which is a really really good price for this unit.

Sells at HD for $349

Amazon sells it for $299

It’s rarely seen for under $260 according to CCC but I’m not sure if I’m using that site properly so I’m going to end my message here :)

Happy hunting.

Any reason why a fixed router is needed if a plunge one can be used also as fixed?

I have this router combo - love it.
The fixed base has finer adjustment for height/depth.
I actually mounted the fixed base to a router table insert. The plunger base is used for anything I can't do with the router table.

Did you go into the store for a price match? Their online match (on the phone) isn't accepting any more callers....

Used stocktrack to find it in store and did the PM at the checkout. Gave up doing anything over the phone since you can’t get through to anybody.

I was able to grab one for 10% off at Home Depot. Was waiting for this to go on sale.

Now I just need the router table to match.
