GKF 600 Router Trimmer and TE 600 Plunge base gives even greater versatility

The GKF 600 kit is supplied with a choice of 4 bases, side fence and trimming guide and this package adds the TE 600 plunge base for even greater accuracy and increases your tool's potential.

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.

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

The 5 bases supplied cover almost all tasks required from this size of router, all are simple and quick to change: 95 x 84mm base, 133mm round base, extended base with side handle and dust extraction outlet, tilting base and TE 600 plunge base with fine height adjustment. The quick clamp base fitting means the base can be removed for quick cutter change. Also supplied is a side fence, adjustable horizontally as well as vertically for thinner workpieces. The router comes with a dust cowl sub-base with a 40mm outlet and guide handle with insulation cover for heavy use situations. A case is also supplied for the router. This machine only accepts 1/4" collet as supplied.

Great piece of kit with some additions required to make it excellent

Excellent piece of kit, I've had mine 15 months now brought the package deal. I did get the adaptor, Bosch part No ( 2610991370 ) to mount the tool less Bosch guide bushes in the TE600 plunge base from Bosch and also the centre setting tool, Bosch part No ( 2608000498 ). To install and align the guide bush and its holder in the acrylic base you have to undo and remove the four machine screws that hold the acrylic sub base to the plunge base and remove it from the plunge base. Install the collet adaptor with the two supplied screws to sub base and install a guide bush ( the larger diameter the better ).Put alignment pin in the appropriate collet in palm router. Then install palm router in the plunge base with the alignment pin protruding through the base, remount the acrylic sub base loosely and slide the cone tapper side down the pin to centralise the acrylic sub base and guide bush and holder, then retighten the four machine screws into the plunge base and re-check alignment after tightening the acrylic sub base to the plunge base also pull the cone off the pin a little bit and rotate the spindle of the router by HAND to make sure the spindle runs true, when I did this, my palm router spindle was bent and Axminster tools sent a new one straight out that hasn't let me down since and I use it all the time and wonder how ever managed with out the palm router and plunge base equipped with the guide bushes and adaptor. Only downside with the palm router is that its not variable speed and that no parallel guide is supplied and the one you can get for it is too big and bulky I found for the kind of work you would use this machine for I ended sending it back. I use my guide from my Bosch 1300ACE as its not too big but I also did buy the trend combination router base and its side fence part No ( CRB/SF ) as its well matched and has expanded the capability of the router and plunge base aswell.

Real boon in the workshop.

Oliver Cox; don't hit it with a hammer! Losen the 8mm nut on the clip that clamps the motor in! I thought mine was a bit loose so tightened it but then the motor wouldn't come out!
The product it's self is brilliant. There are a couple of niggles; no soft-start like on my Trend, limited vision on all but the plunge base, but for the money it's very flexible, the quality is very good for the most part (the dust cowl on the plunge based arrived broken but Bosch are sending a new one, I'm told).

Not the most powerful tool by far but if you recogise it's limitations and work within them, you shouldn't go far wrong!

Fantastic 6mm combi router

I cannot make out some of these reviews. As a professional carpenter / joinery, I have used just about every brand of ½" and 6mm routers ranging from top spec high end models to basic budget models. Reading a couple of these reviews its evident that the users don't know the features of this tool. Take the time to get to know how to use this router properly and you will be amazed by its performance, versatility and capabilities. Its a brilliant piece of kit. Just remember its size and don't expect the tool too do the work of a ½" machine. Great for recessing hinges, grooving within reason, edge mouldings and edging.

A good allround palm/small router

I would agree that this is not a professional quality tool for day in day out work. However it supplements my 1/2" router ideally.
Previous comments on the difficulty on fitting the motor to the housing are valid. I found a few sharp edges on the casting which were causing the tight fit. With these removed and the use of dry PTFE lubricant its now easy to assembly and disassemble.
Don't like the Bosch router guide fixing system so made my own bases and use Trend/APT parts instead.
I think Stefan G would be surprised how many non metric threads are used in his country.
Overall a good palm router made better with a few home made tweaks. Adding a speed controller is also a worthwhile addition.

Disappointing

I got this router kit with the plunge base a while ago. I was very happy with it to begin with but as time goes buy its starting to wear to quickly.
The body is a nightmare to get out of the plunge base. Ive had to resort to using a plastic hammer on the end of the router bit to get it loose from the base. Its still very hard to remove after that.
Its even more of a pain because you can't change the bit while its still in the plunge base.
One of the collets broke while it was in use causing the bit to come out. Bosch were happy to send another out to me but not what i'd expect from a brand new tool.
I think i might have had better luck with the bosch green diy router.
If your looking for a trim router its good enough but as a plunge router its not really up to the job.
