Product Description

With its compact size and spirited performance, the 1-horsepower Colt variable-speed palm-grip router kit from Bosch is a very versatile tool. It's not just a laminate trimmer, but is ideal for trimming deck planks, hinge mortising, edge forming, slot cutting, dovetailing, window cutouts and decorative inlays. The PR20EVSNK variable-speed palm-grip router kit has a palm-grip design with soft grip to make it the most comfortable router in its class, yet it also has enough power to do the job and is more comfortable and easy to use than larger routers. The softstart reduces start-up torque while the Bosch constant response circuitry monitors and maintains speed under load for consistent performance and overload protection. Easily move the motor from base to base with the quick-clamp system to work on other areas of your project. A convenient Front Spindle Lock on the motor was designed for easy, one-wrench bit changes, and a shaft wrench is also included for those who prefer to use two wrenches to change bits. Bosch even covered the small details by angling the cord to help keep it out of the way. The contents of this kit make it ideal for all router users.

    Excellent merchandise at a reasonable price! As with all Bosch tools, is there a ranking higher than five stars?...more info
  • Nice router
    This is a great package. In situations where a small, one hand, easy to maneuver router is needed, this one is a gem. I doubt it should be your first router, maybe not even your second, but if you can add one to your tool box, you will probably use it more than might you think. We just finished a large home theater project. The little pony saw as much use as any. A good example is shallow mortises. ...more info
  • Good little router
    This is a nice little router. I use it for smaller projects around the house and haven't had any problems with it. It appears to be made of good quality....more info
  • Very happy so far.
    This little router is very handy for jobs where light weight and compact size matter more than horsepower. It is not much bigger than a laminate trimmer and is much more versitile.

    I bought mine primarily for cutting hinge and strike plate mortises. I figured that the attachments that come with the kit would come in handy sooner or later. It was a lot cheaper to buy the kit than to buy the bare router and add the other parts a-la-carte.

    The small, rectangular sub-base provided allows you to work close to raised obstructions but it is too small to bridge the opening in hinge mortise templates. Be sure to buy a PR009 or PR010 sub-base with this router so that you have that capability. I chose the PR010 due to the ready availability of 1-3/16" guide bushings and the relatively poor reviews on Bosch's bayonet-mount bushings.

    The only reason for not giving this kit 5-stars is that Bosch did not anticipate the virtual necessity for a larger sub-base and provide room in the case for it....more info
  • Nice set
    I don't use it very often but did a few hours of work with it and I like it. Easy set up and enough power. I just both it so i don't have to unmount my big router from the table. Also smaller is very often better for some jobs....more info
  • Happy but have a slight problem
    I love this router. It is very light weight and powerful and the accessories are great. Love the variable speed. Only issue that Ihave is that after only 2 months of use, the spindle lock is broken and cannot be used to tighten or loosen the bits. I took a 3/8" wrench and thinned it downto fit the slot on the spindle and now uestwo wrenches to tighten/loosen the bits. Would have thought that Bosch would have made something that stood up a little better than this. Oh well, I still love the router....more info
  • GREAT TOOL !!!!!
    BOSCH DOES IT AGAIN !!! I ALREADY HAVE BOSCH'S 1617EVS 2 1/4 HP KIT WHICH IS INCREDIBLE & THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT THIS TIME EITHER!! THE PR20 KIT HAS JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED FOR THIS MACHINE (I ALSO BOUGHT THE PR009 TEMPLATE SUB BASE). FOR ROUTING IN SMALLER AREAS OR WHEN YOU JUST NEED A SMALLER ROUTER FOOTPRINT FOR INTRICATE WORK, THIS FITS PERFECTLY. WHILE I WAS APPREHENSIVE AT FIRST PUTTING MY FINGERS SO CLOSE TO A SPINNING BIT IN THE BASE'S FINGER POCKETS, I SOON GOT USED TO THE FEEL & WAS ON MY WAY!! SO FAR, I'VE USED IT FOR SOME ROUND OVER ON SOME INTRICATE PIECES & ALSO FREEHAND CARVING WITH A V-GROOVE BIT. THIS WORKED EXCEPTIONALLY WELL AS I HAD FULL FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT DUE TO ITS SMALL SIZE-SOMETHING JUST NOT POSSIBLE IN LARGER ROUTERS HAVING YOUR HANDS IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS. BOSCH REALLY TOOK THE TIME & HIT ANOTHER HOME RUN !! ...more info
  • Great multi use light router
    Great tool, light enough that you will only reach for your larger routers when they are really needed.

    I always carry this router on my truck now and keep finding new uses for it. It's strong enough to round over window sill stock, light enough to scribe the front of the cast iron farmers sink into the front of the cabinets. Use a pattern following bit with it...The list goes on....more info
  • Bosch colt Installers Kit 5.7 amp 1hp

  • Little routers for little hands
    I teach a woodworking class in the after-school program at the Chestnut Hill School in Suffolk County, NY. I purchased the Bosch Colt so that the 3rd through 5th grade children in the class could learn to use a router without having to attempt to guide either my Bosch 1613 Plunge Router or a 3 1/4 HP Porter Cable Router. It has worked out well. The smaller hands - and weaker grips of the children present no problem as they use the machine. I have used it to do some simple chamfering or rounding over when I elected not to resort to hauling out my table-mounted P-C machine, and it has performed well. Obviously, one will get better results with a half inch bit chucked into a table mounted router, rather than a 1/4 in. bit, but for simple, non production work, the tool performs well....more info
  • Big router in a small package
    This router is excellent for small jobs and even some larger ones. Easy to use and adjust with multiple base to allow you to do many operations. Works great for door hinges and trim routing. Variable speed and fine depth adjustment to setup the router for the job....more info
  • Bosch trim router kit excellent tool.
    This is an excellent kit. Plenty of power in a compact router. Light and easy to handle. Great ergonomics, and very useful attachments. I especially like the soft start feature. The spindle lock is the only thing I find lacking....more info
