About This Product

The Bosch GKF125CE Colt variable-speed palm-grip router puts routing power and precision in the palm of your hand. The GKF125CE has an ergonomic palm-grip design with soft grip to make it very comfortable to hold, making it typically easier to use than larger routers, yet it also has ample power with a 1.25 HP Maximum rating. It's far more than a just a laminate trimmer, as it is the ideal tool for putting round-overs on deck railings, mortising for hinges, slot cutting and much more. The motor features soft-start, a variable-speed control and Constant Response circuitry to maintain speed under load. Its PR101 fixed base features macro- and micro-fine depth adjustment and a center able round subbase for easy guidance. The GKF125CEK Kit includes a self-releasing 1/4 in. collet chuck, comfortable forged collet wrench, edge guide and a case.

    Q:Is this router compatible with any router tables? If so, what makes/models?
    by|Nov 2, 2021
    1 Answer

    A:  Hi there! The GKF125CE Palm Router is way too small to be mounted under a router table. We recommend using bigger router like 2.0HP 1617EVS. For further assistance, contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from Mon-Fri 7A-7P CST.

          A:  If it's a 1/4 collet to use 1/4 shank, then the collet nut thread is not 1/4-20

            Worst mistake I've made in a while. Making adjustments, changing bits, requires three hands. It is almost impossible to hold on without wobling, tilting and is useless for making blood grooves in a cutting board.

            I bought it for mortising hinges onto new door slabs. It worked great! The built in LED lights let me keep working outside once the sun went down. I’ve had it for just 2 weeks, used it to do 6 doors. But I will be using it on other projects to round over and chamfer edges.

            Purchased the Bosch & similar model Dewalt both 1 1/4 hp. Really wanted to keep the Bosch because of longer cord, included box,& edge guard. However, the Bosch base plate is smaller than the Dewalt & I found more difficult to control on edge roundovers. The Dewalt base plate squared on one end. I preferred that for control. Fine depth adjustment on the Dewalt I found to be better. The Bosch was more difficult to use. Both great routers, I kept the Dewalt, returned the Bosch.

            powerful, comfortable
            my first palm router. powerful motor and feels good in hand. speed ramps up in about a second or two by design so it doesn't kick at startup. the quick adjustment works real nice and easy. the fine adjustment is what i would expect. a little stiff to turn, but not too much. i expect this is to keep it in place when locked in. if you adjust a lot then you may want to go into the store and feel it. the guide attachment is fine, but nothing more and can be very difficult to pull from the case.

              Another Bosch tool that exceeds my expectations; better still when one can find a deal on them.

              Have used this router so far to help size and flush trim an MDF workbench top. Extremely easy to use and accurate.
