Wood Router: About that Comfort

The reviewer at the About website's woodworking area , Chris Baylor, said that the Colt was "one of the most comfortable palm routers we've ever used." He was impressed by the complete kit.

"This palm router didn't disappoint; I had an absolute ball working with this router. The motor, while small at 1.0 HP & 5.7 amps, more than held its own for the basic routing tasks I put it through. The height adjustments, whether major or minor (using the Microfine Depth Adjustment) were accurate and the depth scales (in both Standard and Metric increments) printed right on the unit were a nice touch.

"Upon opening the case of the Bosch Colt PR20EVSNK Variable Speed Palm Router Kit, we were a bit overwhelmed by the choices of attachments included with the router. After a closer inspection, we couldn't quit thinking of uses for all of the attachments on a number of different woodworking projects."

The Colt wood router is a great and handy power tool for custom carpentry, trimming laminate flooring or deck planks, mortising hinges, dovetailing and more. And with Bosch's "Constant Response" circuitry, you always have a stable speed so you can always keep control of the router for clean, burn-free cuts.

Wood Router a "Workhorse"

At Pro Tool Reviews , woodworking expert Ernie Conover called the Colt palm router a "workhorse" that can handle plenty of tasks that make woodworkers' lives easier:

"In all of my use tests, the Colt’s brush-type universal motor had plenty of power—more than enough for ¼” shank bits of 1-5/16” maximum diameter for which it is designed. It’s this robust power that makes the Colt a workhorse in a host of everyday woodworking applications.

"Woodworkers have long liked flush trim routers for all kinds of free hand routing. Bosch’s main design concept for the Colt was to build a flush trim router with 1 hp. They call it a palm router to distinguish it from its low powered progenitors. I really appreciated the ergonomic rubber grip on the motor and the 10’ long neoprene sheaved SJ-type power cord on this double insulated tool."
