Bosch MR23EVS Router

Reviewing the Bosch MR23EVS Benchtop RouterThe new MR23EVS routers from Bosch have some great features. Which one do I like best? The trigger on the handle. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Here’s the deal. Multi-base routers offer a lot of versatility by providing one motor that fits into both a plunge and a fixed base. The problem with swapping the motor back and forth is that it means the on/off switch has to be on the motor, not on the base. For both convenience and safety I’d much rather have the switch on the base.Bosch has solved this problem. On their newest routers the electronics on the motor dock into a port in the base. This allows both the plunge base and fixed base to have trigger switches built into the base. Using the machine in a router table? Just lock the trigger in the on position.

The MR23EVS routers offer the same easy-to-use depth adjustment I’ve come to love on other Bosch routers. The 2.3 hp (15 amp) motors run from 10,000 to 25,000 rpm. 1/4″ and 1/2″ collets are included, and an LED light sheds light into the bit area.

    Hello M” Vondriska, I am a fairly new member of WWGoA, I already have a Freud 3-1/4 HP router (now Felisatti RF67/2200 var. spd. I am interested in the new Bosch MR23EVS but will the motor go onto a Rockler, Jessem, Kreg, Incra or any other lift systems as it now has a contact assembly for motor control ? ( I want to rebuild my router cabinet ) Thank you in advance !

      Hello and welcome. Unfortunately there are enough nuances from router to router and lift to lift that I cannot keep track of the compatibility. I’d suggest contacting the router lift manufacturers to see what they can tell you. Or, if there’s a retailer in your area that carries one or more of these lifts you might be able to bring your router in to the store to try it out.
      Thanks
