Features

Use the BOSCH® 1 hp Colt™ variable-speed electronic palm-router kit as the building block for a router center that will make trim work, slot-cutting and mortising easier, quicker and more precise. The centerpiece of the kit is the variable-speed router (model PR20EVS), driven by a 1-hp, 5.6-Amp motor that is powerful but lightweight -- with Constant Response™ circuitry to keep the motor running at steady rpm under load, soft-start technology to minimize start-up torque, and a dial to control speeds for various materials and work needs. The Bosch colt palm router also features a palm-grip design that makes it the most comfortable router in its class, and unique finger support pockets for added control. A depth adjustment system allows plunges at macro and microfine measurements, and a quick clamp system adjusts the palm router and moves it quickly between workstations. The kit also includes a durable aluminum fixed base (model PR001) that accepts bits up to 1 5/16-inch in diameter, a straight-edge guide (model PR002) that extends 3 5/8 inches from the edge of the work piece, and a rugged carrying case.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for me. After a long search, I found just what I needed with this Bosch Colt router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful For the longest time I used a Festool MFK700 trim router. But after fussing around with setting up the Festool MFK700 and the fact that the Festool MFK700 does not have a plunge base, I decided to invest into the Bosch Colt trim router and a plunge base. I was pleasantly impressed with the Colt. The Colt combined with the plunge base is just brilliant. Variable speed allows you to dial in the proper speed for the bit. I wouldn't buy a router with a single speed. Dust collection was better than I expected. I really like the fact that Bosch created a edge guide (Bosch item # RA1054) that works with the MRC23EVSK 2.3 HP router base (another great Bosch router I must add that I enjoy using) with the plunge base for the Colt. I only need one edge guide for two different routers. With Festool, you're forced to buy a different sized edge guide for each router they sell. For small jobs, the use of 1/4" router bits you can't go wrong with the Colt. Easy to dial in the depth of the router bit. I like being able to see the router bit while using the router, I can easily see the bit on the Colt. Another thing about the Festool MFK700 I don't like. Compact design fits nicely in my hands. Easy to control. Just overall a darn good router. My only complaint about the Colt is the plastic case it comes in. I'm a neat freak. I want everything to be in one place. I wish the Colt was sold in a L-BOXX with a insert for all the Colt accessories to fit in so that everything would be in one L-BOXX case. I have a lot of Festool tools and like the fact that the accessories for the different tool can be stored with the tool. Hopefully Bosch will offer more L-Boxx combos in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router Bought this router cause of the quality and performance of other Bosch products I own. This is a great product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tool for Mortising hinges and lock plates. I used the tool to mortise the hinges and lock plates on an entry door jamb I replaced. I didn't give it five stars, only because it is difficult to set the depth of cut. You have to set it, and then lock it down. Locking it often changes the depth of cut, so there is a lot of trial and error till you get it set. Use a scrap piece of the old jamb to set depth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sorry I have only used once since my purchase. Not sure I can properly rate after only one use,however I do like it very much. It seems to have plenty of power for it's size. The plastic storage case is super . It is tough plastic with a well designed hinge and latch system. The case also has room for several accessories. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a quality small router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little router, acts like a big router Used this recently while building a bookcase and it worked well. For the type of routing in this project, a larger router would have just gotten in the way. Well built, easy to adjust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small hand router The Colt variable speed router is a great addition to anyones arsenal of tools. Easily adjustable, the variable speed adds a excellent addition. Impressive torque for such a small piece of equipment. I highly recommend this product. I'm leaving my other routers behind from now on.
