Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I selected the Bosch Colt for two reasons; 1) the Bosch name - they make some great tools and 2) I needed a palm sized router for edge treatment of boards. Full sized routers are too hard to handle for edge treatment (round-over, ogee or roman) of smaller 1 X boards. The Bosch Colt is just the tool for edging. With the built-in options such as the micro-adjust depth setting and the top mounted variable speed wheel - the Colt is really easy to set and use. I also like that the base will completely separate so that it is easier/roomier to install bits in the collet and also a plus is a built-in spindle lock, although Bosch includes a spindle flat wrench along with the collet wrench. The only cons are no fence/guide although there is place set on the base to attach, and no tool storage bag of box. Not a big deal since Bosch obviously puts all the money in the tool. The router itself has very smooth operation starting with the soft start. Running 1/2" ogee and round-over bits on pine and maple was no problem for the small Colt. Motor seemed to keep the rpm through the whole run of the board edge. The router is easy to handle with one hand. The base plate has depressions made to help grip the router from the plate for edge trimming such as one laminate. A great powerful tool for it's compact size!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
120-Volt Corded Variable-Speed Palm Router By Bosch This is a really nice router by Bosch, It comes with a 1/4” collet. There are no bits included. It has a 12 Amp motor that is a lot of power. You can also adjust the speed as needed. It has a precision centering system and 3 3/4” base operating that aids in maneuvering along your cutting line. This seems to be a well made router. I was anxious to try it out, but I have no router bits. I'll have to wait until I can go purchase a couple of different size bits. This router is a palm router with a fixed base, but you can remove the acrylic base and it does have 4 holes so you could attach it to a table. With it being as small as it is, this is a comfortable size for my hand. I think most women would prefer it over a larger one. I'm anxious to purchase a router bit so I can give it a try. It also has an adjustable speed dial (800-25,000 RPM). I know this is a popular brand and know Bosch to have excellent products. I would recommend this Bosch Router because of their well-known and great products. I went online to read more about this particular router, but it seems this particular one has been discontinued.
