Compact powerful router
11 Mar 2015
By Dano74t
, Tamworth
" Having used this router over the last 6 months it still amazes me in how versatile it is.
Whether its routing out for hinges on a door, or your trimming laminate off the edge of a worktop it cuts through these operations with ease.
Build quality is good and with micro adjustment for setting the height you can be sure to get your cutter set correctly.
The locking spindle does away with the need for 2 spanners so changing tooling is effortless.
The fence on the other hand isn't the best and care must be taken to ensure all wing nuts are tight otherwise it will move.
A welcome addition to this is the plunge base, where you can even use a guide bush to assist with template work.
If your looking for a compact, powerful and very versatile 1/4 chuck router look no further this has all jobs covered. "

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. "

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. "

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.... "
