Overview

Model # PR20EVS Store SKU # 1001168849

The Bosch PR20EVS Colt electronic variable-speed palm router combines power, precision and versatility in a small-sized tool. It has a 1.0 HP, 5.6 Amp motor that spins at a variable speed of 16,000 to 35,000 RPM. The router features Constant Response circuitry, which maintains a consistent speed by detecting heavy loads and increasing power to maintain the selected RPM. It features soft-start circuitry, which reduces startup torque. Additionally, depth adjustment is simple; just align and lower the motor and then lock the router in position with the clamping level. Micro-fine adjustments are equally effortless, thanks to the wheel on the back of the router's base. It accepts standard 1/4 inch bits for flexibility, with an impressive max cutter diameter of 1-5/16 inch The motor housing has a palm-shaped, rubber over-molded grip that allows for comfortable operation. And the included rugged aluminum fixed base is durable, solid and precise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to maneuver [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Never had a small router, always used a big router. This is my go to router now, easy to handle, easy adjustments, powerful for being so small. Just recently used it to mortis out butt hinges for kitchen cabinets, it was a breeze. Definitely would recommend this tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I ended up returning this tool due to the depth... I ended up returning this tool due to the depth would not maintain at same level. the tool has a sleeve with a lock lever on it, but the roll pin came loose and it came apart and the depth went too deep and ruined my project costing me $200, I won't buy this again, it might be okay for small insignificant projects but anything that needs fine detail I would not recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for 1. The ability to zero and tighten the blade is impeded by the collar. 2. The locking mechanisms do not hold and it slips deeper into the cut. Piece is ruined 3. The collar drops the bit. 4. The instruction manual of vague at best. The term larger diameter bits are subjective there is no definition of what this unit considers large. 5. It was a challenge to route effectively in a midrange wood no matter the settings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for quick and dirty jobs. For routing where absolute accuracy and finish are not so important this is a great tool, routing for draw sliders, quick chamfers but I wouldn't use it for serious cabinet making. But then that's not what's it's been designed for.
