In Detail

This very compact palm router from Bosch is ideal for not only the edging of laminates but also for edge moulding, mortising and a range of other work that would benefit from a powerful but light and easy to control router. Now supplied with a kit of accessories making this machine even more versatile.

The 600W motor means that this palm router is almost as powerful as many 1/4" routers and more powerful than many laminate trimmers. This is truly a very versatile machine, with a neat compact design (overall size 94 x 190mm high) which makes it easy to handle and control, and is especially suitable for confined areas.

The machine comes with a choice of 4 bases that are simple and quick to change to suit the job you are doing, 95 x 84mm base, 133mm round base, extended base with side handle and dust extraction outlet and a tilting base. For height adjustment of the cutter a lock lever releases the motor from the base allowing quick coarse adjustment; the micro fine adjuster dial can then be used to set height accurately. The quick clamp base means that the router can be used without the base and the spindle lock makes changing cutters easy. Fitted with a 1/4" collet, the 600W motor runs at 33,000rpm. Along with the 4 bases a side fence is also included; this fence can be adjusted horizontally as well as vertically for thinner work pieces. The router comes with a dust cowl sub-base with a 40mm outlet and guide handle with insulation cover for heavy use situations. These together with all the supplied accessories fit neatly into the carry case. This machine only accepts 1/4" collet as supplied.

A fantastic wee tool, even for miniature work. Was just able to do something I've been trying to get right for years... in minutes! Very glad to have bought it.

Wants to be great but let down by two annoying things...

I've had mine about a year now and if you asked me 6 months back I would certainly recommend this kit. In terms of value, due to the bits you get (in a case that's too small mind you - 1st annoying point but not one that would make me mark it down) then it's really very good. Unfortunately the last 6 months this thing has been a pain - it's broken it's collet 3 times. They are expensive to replace and I've had enough now and I'm putting mine for sale and getting a DeWalt. Quick search of the internet shows it's a common problem and Bosch should get onto it as it ruins an otherwise handy and useful machine.

Nice in the palm of one hand

The low weight and small dimensions of this router/laminate trimmer are very appealing to me. Edge trimming is quickly done, the large base plate (relative the size of the router) helps me from tilting, steering is easy thanks to the small weight, and even freehand work came out satisfactory. Dust being blown away from the operator helps me quite a lot from straying too much from the intended.

The 600W does not allow for deep cuts and the fixed high speed I believe argues against anything but rather narrow bits. Repeated cuts will thus be necessary, and that's when depth setting can become somewhat more laborious than on standard routers.

Probably one of the Best Power Tools I've ever bought !

I waited a few months to write this so that |I'd have a better idea of what features and accessories worked well with this power unit, and having used every accessory it came with, I'm pleased to say that they were all worth having.
It was well worth waiting as I've found lots more jobs I could do without getting out my Half Inch Router which is quite often a pain when all you have to do is straighten and clean up a sawn edge on a piece of melamine board.
I had to buy a whole new raft of Quarter Inch Router Bits which opened up lots more tasks this amazing Tool could take on and do perfectly.
Just recently I made an angled Kitchen Cupboard in a non standard gap with a service duct in the corner, and made the whole thing with a Jigsaw (also Bosch) and my Laminate Trimmer - the angled face edges were no problem at all, and the quill piece for the hinge mounts cut from 40x60 pine was a doddle, which before now would have needed a Power Plane to make the triangular section fillet with a mountain of shavings to shift.
I've got four old Oak Kitchen Unit doors and just for the hell of it I'm going to try doing some inlay work with some Strips of White Holly I've had for donkeys years but never had a use for.
I've literally punished this piece of gear mercilessly and it's not even baulked once at what I've wanted it to do and only time will tell how long it takes for me to wreck the bearings, lol, but for now definitely one of the best Power Tools I've ever bought, well done Brilliant Bosch.
