Can the 1/2" collet tighten down on a 5/16" bit?

Asked by Dave January 8, 2020

The collet size of the palm router is 1/4" and it is fixed. It can't be tighten to a smaller bit. This goes the same with the fixed/plunge base router that has 1/2" collet. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

Almost too easy
Customer review from BoschTools.com logo
I bought this to cut some mortises in a replacement door. I was done in 10 minutes. Excited to find other projects now so I can further justify the purchase. Super comfortable tool. Plenty of power. Interested in what accessories are available.

Really inconvenient
I bought this router because it was supposed to be convenient, its not. I wanted to use the edge guide, to install the edge guide you have to remove the baseplate then install a mounting bracket, then reinstall the baseplate, to remove the baseplate you need not a Phillips screwdriver, not a flat head screwdriver, not a hex key but possibly a torx bit (I dunno )my back gave out before I could find a fitting torx? bit. So much for a convient router. (They kinda defeated the quik bit change feature already) After you get the base plate off you'll need a Phillips bit screwdriver to install the edge guide mounting bracket then theoretically you can attach the edge guide with a wingnut to the edge guide mounting bracket which is now in the way of using the base of the router as an edge guide. (Why didnt they just put a threaded hole in the side of the base for the edge guide? I dunno know, German engineering?) Ill let you know how the router performs after I find the correct torx bit if it is a torx bit, btw is that SAE or Metric Torx? Or something else like a square drive? I need my 15X loup to tell. ADD A PHOTO & ENTER TO WIN $1,000 I'd add a pic of the buggerhead baseplate screw but the add image feature doesnt work. (So much for winning $1000 for adding an image prize)

Router is easy to use, the course/fine adjustment is very intuitive. It's way more powerful than a palm router needs to be but I'm not complaining. Takes a 3/4" straight flute cut like it's not even there.

I have taken a few of these palm router to their final end be working them for all they had. This is the palm router I should have started with. The soft start this bosch starts with makes sure you actually have control of you tool before you push to it's maximum horsepower. You also have fewer ports allowing the sawdust to wearout your tool. This Bosch is a recommended trim router for anyone who needs a clean clear and crisp finish line.

(What's this)
Here is a quality tool that is comfortable to use, yet powerful enough to handle the project. For edge or decorative work this will do the job in a small package. It has adjustable height by a unique lock that is easily applied and can be fine adjusted as well. The 1/4" router bits are easily changed with the locking spindle and provided wrench.The viewing area is well lit with the built in LED light which provides plenty of visibility when working.

(What's this)
1.25 HP. Lots of power in a little package. This unit fit my hand well so the ergonomics of it was well thought out. I also did some extended work with it and suffered little if any fatigue. I have lots of Bosch tools and this lives up to the reputation.The variable speed worked awesome for the different style of cuts on different woods. I tested the unit with a channel bit and a quarter round bit on Oak and Pine. It handled both with ease. I look forward to trying it on some more complicated cuts for joinery on cabinet doors and making dovetails. It also comes in it's own plastic case which is a nice feature.
