Great little bit of kit!
13 Jan 2015
By JayR
, London
" I've wanted one of these for a while but couldn't justify it. Needed it for a job so bit the bullet and am happy to say I'm not disappointed. It's first job was profiling a 25mm MDF tabletop with a 15 year old router bit and it didn't skip a beat!
Very compact, easy to guide and punches above it's weight. It's not a replacement for a larger plunge router but it certainly has it's place and is a very fair price.
There are a couple of minor criticisms though: the fine adjustment wheel is very stiff to operate and is lubricated with grease, so any dust from the workpiece immediately sticks to the thread and binds, making adjustment nearly impossible if not cleaned off.
Also, the main plate carriage feels a little bit flimsy compared to the solid engineering of the main body.
Overall though, it really is a very decent little machine and I thoroughly recommend it. "

By Chippy69

" I use it for cutting in hinges and door latches on doors and door frames. It fits nicely in your hand, its light and a gives a smooth operation when in use. I wasn't disappointed.
Pretty much every thing you'd expect from a Bosch professional tool. "

Bosch GKF600 Palm Router
13 Oct 2014
By GSF1200
, Dartford, Kent
" This router is superb. Very easy to handle and because of its size and weight the accuracy is amazing. Used this rebate some parliament hinges and the results were excellent. I have a bigger router but given that I use them only for home use the Bosch GKF600 is all you really need which leaves the bigger router redundant! "

Mini router that delivers
6 Sep 2014
By Theibrahims
, Milton Keynes
" First, it is all in the name. Bosch is a good name when it comes to power tools. As for this specific router, it really packs a punch. I have a Dewalt router that I use on a daily basis. As I am doing a lot of inlay and mortises, I wanted something small that will give me the same results from my dewalt. This did. And I do highly recommend it. If you want something mobile, light weight, precise and can run for semi professional time scale, this is the one. "

Great little router/trimmer.

By BespokeWoodcrafts

" I bought this for trimming only but found it to be so much more versatile.
This little router punches above it's weight!
Quick and easy base change and depth adjustment.
A lot of tool for the money

Compact Unit
3 May 2014
By crackerj
, Bracknell
" I use a normal sized router quite often but found this smaller unit so much easier to operate in my small workshop where space is at a premium!
Took a while to get used to the instant start rather than the smooth operation of a bigger unit, also I tend to leave the cutting tool in place till it stops rather than trying to lift it away and cause accidental cutting!
Excellent unit and I'm pleased with it.... "

Fantastic value at £100-
1 Jan 2014
By Fredthedog
, Leeds
" What a great little router.
powerful enough to smoothly use any of my 1/4" cutters, and yet still easy enough to fit nto one hand. Some routers are like trying to hold on to a chinook! Not this one.
Hinges recessed, mouldings shaped, bevells cut, grooves sank...
All good, should have got one years ago. "

Nice little router
14 Oct 2013
By Neil154
, London
" This was just what I was looking for: a lightweight trimmer with robust build, at a reasonable price. The problem is this Screwfix deal doesn't come with a sub base for guide bushes or adapter for extraction which you can buy as a kit elsewhere for not much more. But it's fine if the basic router is all you require. "

" purchased mainly for GCSE projects in a school environment. With so little kick back and easy set up for cutting tools and fence pupils were excited using it. Produced clean sharp edges leaving no visible burn marks on workpieces.Lookinf forward to many years of use. Strongly recommend this product "
