Description

In Detail

Bosch Professional 3 Year Warranty (Registration Required)

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 well

I 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.
If I was only going to buy one router I'd definitely not choose this, the middle size black and green router is more flexible, nearly as accurate, nearly as smooth, equally powerful and utterly bomb proof (our site teams have these and we have 6 in the shop). If I just wanted a workhorse the large yellow and black router is good enough for most tasks and they are tough, we must have 20 or more of these. If you need tonnes of power then the big green and black router or something from America are your best options in my opinion.

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 router

This 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.
I have the fixed base for mine semi-permanently fitted to my riser table and the plunge base fitted to my mortise jig. Given how fiddly both are there is a good potential for Bosch to sell spare bases as I for one would buy a plunge base so as I could leave the current one on the mortise jig. As I can't justify the cost of having another one of these machines the lack of bases for sale don't make up additional total tool sales for Bosch in fact given how little 'free hand' routing I do I will end up buying a cheap and cheerful 1/2in router when my old faithful cheap and cheerful Axminster White ones dies.

great machine

I 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.
