In Detail

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.

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.

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.

Very fine little router

Cannot agree in the rewiev of Mr Arkwright. Got 8 mm and 1/4 inch collect, works well. It is well built giving a solid feeling. Living in a civilized country that has converted to the MKSA system hundred years ago, i don't object to the 8 mill collect hehehehehehehe. This is a little router, produced to fine routing. For the heavier works , I use my 3 hp Makita.
But for light and medium tough routing the Bosch 600 is handy and easy to operate. It dos'nt lack power even in hardwoods.
I love the easyhandling, the precision obtainable. There may bee some fiddelin with small screws, but to bee honest, I use this machine mostly freehand, with guidebushes or bearings, and find the low weight pleasant. It is not a machine that should bee the only router in the shop, but as second to a big router, it is a great supplement. I would'nt be without my Little blue Bosch!
