I check Bosch's web sight and they do not list a pr20evs. I am guessing it is the same if it has an adjustable speed.

Is a plunge base available for the PR20EVKS palm router?

Asked by superdave August 30, 2018

Answers

Yes it is.

The details on this tool indicated it is "reconditioned"; is this indeed a used router that was worked on or, an absolutely new unit?

It has been rebuilt, yes it is used.

will this cut 1/2 dadoes on occassion?

Asked by KyleE February 1, 2015
3
Answers

This router is for light duty edge trimming. You can use it for the occasional dado and rabbet cuts but you will need to do multiple passes 1/8" at a time. Anything more would require more HP router.

what is the difference between Fixed and Plunge base?

Asked by Flip July 17, 2018

Answers

A plunge base allows you to press the router bit vertically into the board and not from an edge. It usually is spring loaded to pull the bit back out. People making signs use it alot.

Did the job
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Purchased mainly to rout back of cabinet carcasses to make room for panel. Worked great! Nice size, very easy to use, and the guide is indispensable. I'll find lots more to do with this little tool. I wish the case was smaller though.

Had this palm router for a couple of months and loving it. The soft start is really nice, with minimal to no torque when turning on. Using this for freehand routed signs and it’s very comfortable. Depth gauge is easy to use and changing bits is easy.
