Very handy

" I purchased this to install fire strips into doors, usually I would use a bigger 2 handed one which takes time due to holding the door and the router. This is amazing, easy to control and you only need 1 hand! "

Great little router
18 Dec 2015
By
, Scottish Borders
" This is a great little router for freehand use. Easy to hold and control with fine adjustment of the depth of cut. Powerful, but doesn't run away. Far easier to control than my standard two handed one. "

great little router
16 Nov 2015
By
, London
" This router is great, easy to use and handle due to design and weight.
A few annoying things is the lack of a dust extraction attachment, which is very hard to find, and the ON/OFF switch could be more easily reachable.
The plunge base is good too, adds a lot of capability, but it's a bit stiff and very hard to insert and remove the motor!
Best router for the price imo x

Bosch palm router

" Had this just over a week now, very easy to set up and adjust, with the micro adjustment dial a very useful feature. Fantastic results on a number of projects, the soft start, is a great advantage, along with the light weight, this is a pleasure too use. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it! "

" Bought this Palm router to hang a few doors after watching a YouTube vid... I researched the market for reasonably priced routers for the couple of things I wanted to do and this came out on top as it has proved itself to have done! I was dubious from others reviews but definitely worth the money! Plunger also purchased and proven vital for the set! "

Excellent Product
12 Jul 2015
By

" This is the best in its range of palm routers. I recently bought this and in less than a week of purchase have not only used it on laminate routing but all sorts of flush routing.
The people at Screwfix were also very helpful and supportive.
Highly recommended both the product and screwfix. "

Compact powerful router
11 Mar 2015
By
, 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
, 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. "
