Amazon is offering the Bosch Router Combo Kit (1617EVSPK) for $176.90 shipped. Normally $199 at Amazon for the past few months, today’s deal might not be the largest discount but it does mark the second-best price that we’ve tracked all-time at Amazon, only being beat by a drop to $159 back in December of last year. The 1617EVSPK is the router that I personally use when woodworking and I absolutely love it. The fixed base I have mounted in a router table on my table saw’s wing and the above-table adjustment lets me dial things in with ease, no dedicated router lift required. The included plunge base will let you do something like flatten a slab or route a dado easily too as there are multiple steps for simple multi-pass tasks. Head below for more.
Given how much you’re saving today, the deal above still only includes the router itself and no bits. We recommend grabbing this 15-piece Hiltex tungsten carbide router bit set with just a fraction of your leftover cash. It includes a cove bit, alongside round-over, dovetail, chamfer, straight, and several others so you’re ready to go as soon as the router arrives. I have a similar kit in the garage and am always surprised by what these lower-cost bits can do, as this setup is only $28 on Amazon.
Don’t forget to check out the DEWALT sale that we found earlier this evening. With deals from $10, we found discounts on a wide range of DEWALT’s gear including the expansive 5-tool XR brushless cordless combo kit, which is on sale for an impressive $200 off, down to $599 in the sale. Then, swing by our Black Friday guide for even more ways to save throughout the weekend.
