Hi Ofex

Thanks for that mate, you're right. I had a mooch through Amazon.com reviews and questions and there was a message from a chap who'd bought the base from the US and it worked perfectly on his UK Bosch router. 

Only draw back is cost, the cheapest I could find was apprx. £120 including import and postage, still cheaper than buying another router for the router table. Dissapointingly Bob couldn't get this info even though he works for Bosch..

would it be cheaper to buy the GMF1600 ( so you get both bases) and then sell your GOF 1600 second hand  ???

No I don't think so, I'd be lucky to recover 70% of what I paid even though it would still have nearly three years warranty, at best it would be cost neutral I reckon.

I'm going on holiday soon and when I come back if Bob doesn't pony up some good news I'll buy from America,  This will be the only Bosch power tool I'll ever buy as good as it is, I've started replacing my current power tools with Metabo,

I bit the bullet and pruchsed the Bosch MR23 fixed base from the US, cost me £80 all in and I'm pleased to report that it works with GOF1600 router.

I'm as happy as Larry although I still think Bosch UK is pants.

Bob,

It's been over a year now since you announced some positve news about a possible release of the fixed base for the GOF1600.
Hmmm, you guys work in mysterious ways.....
From searching on the internet I do come across a lot of comments from people all over the place looking for a fixed base for this unit. I certainly am. The reason I bought the unit at the time, was specifically because of the option of having the two bases. Well, so much for that promise.
Or....do you have some real good news now!
If not, I am so so disappointed in Bosch.
