    That's a great price for a very slick unit.

    on their website, you can go on a mailing list when it came in stock, the one time it came in stock briefly, the email went to my spam and I never got it.
    I saw this post the other day, looked on their site, still didn't see it listed, got their catalog yesterday, not listed, but I jumped on that link and ordered one, figured worth the try, I wanted this, I have a mlcs router table extension.
    wooohooooo! look what just showed up!

    the Milwaukee router is too large, I don't have an adaptor kit, but I think I want to keep the Milwaukee for other tasks, so Im going to buy a porter cable router motor for underneath. I think its the 890 series.
    Ill never be able to work under the table and install it myself, so I have to wait until my son is free, and Saturday hes coming to install the floor and TV. Ill have to book him again.

    thanks, dan, never would have known about this if you didn't post it.

    gonna take a day off from the woodworking today and go shop around for a router. Just look, probably get the best price on amazon, but its fun to shop around and I can get some input from some tool people.
    Im leaning towards the PC 890 series. 2 and 1/4 horsepower.

    The Bosch 1617evs is a great router IMHO. Looks like it would fit.

    PC 890 is a great choice.

    Carol, I notice in your book, pictures of Bosch 1617 and Porter Cable routers. I'd be curious of you opinion on which one is best, or are they equal, or whatever. I've alway heard Porter Cable router were very good routers, but have never owned one. I plan on purchasing a second router eventually so I don't have to dismount my Bosch from the table to use it as a hand held router. My concern about the Porter Cable, which is not the original Porter Cable company, and other items of that brand name appear to me to have deteriorated IMHO, is the router as good as it use to be?
