    How many of them did you order?

    Like with drills YOU can't have too many different routers and bits.

      None I like the bosch 1617 kit's plunger. It is a good buy for someone who needs a big router for the table. I would be curious as to how the Freud would handle out of the table. I prefer big fixed base routers for table work. I am still lovin my 5625 milwaukee in my benchdog table!!!

        $130 is a good price for a big router... I guess how it handles in free hand use is subjective, but I found the nearly identical FT2000E to feel "big" during hand use. It works, but compared to a Bosch 1617, FT1700, or MW5615 BodyGrip, the FT2000 felt cumbersome. I've never needed that kind of power for the bits I use freehand, so I much prefer the feel of a more nimble hand router. The FT2000 is strong in the table but it lacks above table features and has a fairly narrow throat opening.
