Overview

Model # GKF125CEN Store SKU # 1001180310

The Bosch GKF125CE Colt variable-speed palm-grip router with 1.25 horsepower (max) lets you feel the power in your hand. This Bosch Colt Palm Router has an ergonomic palm-grip design with soft-grip to make it very comfortable to hold, making it typically more convenient to use than larger routers. But it also has ample power, with a 1.25 HP (max) rating. Far more than a laminate trimmer, it's the ideal tool for rounding-over deck planks and railings, hinge mortising, decorative edge forming, slot cutting, window cutouts, decorative inlays, laminate trimming and more. The motor features soft-start circuitry, a variable-speed dial and Constant Response circuitry to maintain speed under load. Its PR101 fixed base features macro- and micro-fine depth adjustment and a centerable round subbase for easy guidance. The GKF125CEN Colt Palm Router package includes the router, self-releasing collet chuck and a comfortable forged collet chuck wrench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice step up from the 1HP [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Handles 3/4 and smaller bits very well. Great features on this little guy as it handles mortising great and is less cumbersome than my larger frame routers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome router [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this as a gift last year and have used it a lot. It has a great power to weight/size ratio and is very easy to control. Depth adjustments are easy and the soft start feature adds to the router’s safety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Teacher [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I purchased the Palm Router I had never routed anything before. Bosh's Variable Speed Router was so easy to use right out of the box that after a few uses I feel like a pro. Thanks Bosh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Palm Router [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] “This review was submitted as an entry for a review sweepstakes.” I bought this router within the past 2 years and have used it quite a lot. It has plenty of power and handles well. The LED light illuminates the work piece, making it easy to view the progress of the bit. I liked it so much, I bought another one within 6 months of getting the first one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional router I bought this palm router about a month ago and really like it. It has a lot of power and variable speed is really nice. I like the slow start and really like having the lights in by the router bit. It is heavier than my last palm router so that has taken a bit of time to get used too.

I’m concerned that it appears that the outlet for sawdust is towards the user. Am I correct? This would make it difficult for pattern cutt8ng, right?
