The GMF 1600 CE Combo is a universal router supplied with a single motor and 2 bases; fixed and plunge in one tool gives you the best of both worlds. The fixed base is perfect for repetitive and precise work or free hand intricate work, lockable switch on the fixed handle for table use. The centre of gravity is lower with handles closer to the work piece making the router easier to control. When inverted, there is provision for height adjustment from above by drilling a hole in the router table top. No tools are required to change the bases. The plunge base is for precise plunging or dowels, multi-pass cutting of channels and rebates. Among the finer features are powerful 1,600W motor with Constant Electronic power booster, Soft start and variable speed, simple cutter change with the motor unit removed from the base, LEDs light the cutter and work. Fine depth adjustment system gives outstanding precision. Lightweight, robust compact aluminium housing.
Supplied with a robust L-Boxx case, side fence with fine adjuster and a range of accessories including dust extraction cowls for the fence and fixed base

Nice to use but don't last wellI agree with all the reviews. It's a very nice tool to use, we have 3 of them for precise work but ours go for repair pretty often. They are unbelievably smooth to use and very accurate.

New Bosch not as good as old?I bought this 2 years ago after doing a great router course in the Skill Centre. The model was changing, so having ordered in March, I took delivery in June 2012. I was so fed up with the delay that I did not bother to register it - my mistake because now it does not work. Last time I used it, it ran intermittently and now nothing in either base…………… and hardly used!

Great routerThis router is low vibration, not too noisey and great in use. Depth setting is very accurate and in plunge mode highly repeatable. The box is strong and will I suspect last for years, a minor potential niggle with the box is that as supplied neither base can sit in it with above plate dust extraction fitted, a bit of padding can be added into the recess for the base to fix this, it would be better if the recesses were less deep or shaped to accommodate the dust extraction.

great machineI saved for months to get this router and it was more than worth the wait. For years I've bought Bosch ( not the forest green) and the quality has never let me down.
