If you've got a Bosch router hanging in your router table and are tired of reaching under the table to make height adjustments, here's good news. The new RA1165 base, $60, includes above-the-table adjustment. It's compatible with the motors in Bosch 1617, 1617-220V, 1617EVS, 1618 and 1618EVS fixed-base routers. Above-the-table adjustment still means reaching under the table to release the lever that locks the base. And you'll need to drill a hole through your table insert to poke the hex wrench (included) through.
