Won't fit Bosch 1617EVSPK Plunge Base
Posted November 30, 2013
In searching for a guide-bushing set for the Bosch 1617EVSPK Fixed-Base/Plunge Router Combination setup, I found Rockler's #59031 bushing kit & its recommended router plate (#35062). However,not one of its multiple hole patterns even comes close. I should've sent it back, but I went for the gusto & attempted to re-drill and/or elongate other holes. I got close to a fix, but not good enough precision. I've enjoyed excellent Rockler products for many years, so I don't really mind eating this one, since I messed with it.

I bought this router plate to work with my Rockler Dovetail Jig. It fit my Bosch 1617EVS router with no problems and worked flawlessly with the bushing that came with the Dovetail Jig.

I just installed this plate on my Bosch 1617 plunge base. I put a guide bushing in the router, held the plate in place and snugged the centering cone to the bushing. I then rotated the plate until 3 holes lined up. The base holes were at the far edges of the plate holes, so to get the screws in I used a small rat tail jewelry file and elongated the hole in the plate just until the screws would go in. It then tightened down well and is perfectly centered. I used the screws provided by Bosch in my kit. Now when I want to install the guide bushing it will be centered and ready to go. I do think I am going to trim off the part of the plate that goes out past the flat side of the plunge base so it will fit back in the case.

Its a great plate if it fits your router. The details says that it fits my Bosch router. However it does not fit the plunge base. If you have 1617EVSPK 2.25HP Router Comb Pack then this plate will fit the fixed base but does not fit the plunge base. You can try to drill the holes but as I found out its hard to make it line up. I ruined a guide bushing this way.Editor's note: There is an additional mounting hole pattern in the plunge base that is to be used to mount this plate. It is a 3 hole pattern that is found when the sub-base is remove from the plunge base.

Unfortunately, I had to return the item. It would not fit a Dewalt DW-610. I'm glad I didn't try to drill different holes, I may have ruined it thus making it un-returnable.Editor's note: Please click on 'more info' tab in this offer to view list of router models this is compatible with.
