Great Product, but...
This was my first purchase of a "factory refurbished" power tool. The delivery was quick and I was pleased with the appearance of the tool, accessories and case. Except for the "refurbished" label on the router, I could not tell the difference from it and a "fresh" packaged unit from a big box store. My first use was a couple of days later to trim plastic laminate. Removal of the motor to attach a router bit took a moment to refer to the manual. Once done, it was easy to remove and re-install. I liked everyting about this trim router until I turned it on for the very first time. The router would run, stop, start back up, run for a while, stop and start this sequence all over again. I first suspected something wrong with the rocker on/off switch or the speed adjust potentiometer. Nothing seemed to produce consistent starts/stops. After trying to trim 16 feet of plastic laminate, I was extremely frustrated. Not willing to give up on my trimming chore, I decided to check the power cord connections within the motor housing with a voltmeter. One screw is all that holds the plastic housing to the top of the motor. It really looks like the "factory" replaces the circuit board and rocker power switch - these looked brand new. Once inside, I found that the rocker switch did not have one of the terminals tightend. It was completely loose and barely making contact. No wonder the router ran intermittently. Once tightened, it ran perfectly and I was able to finish my job. Maybe my switch experience was a fluke. But it does make me wonder about making a much larger purchase of "factory refurbished" tools in the future. Great little trim router. Easy to use, hold and adjust. Except for the issue with the power switch, I would have given five stars.

I love it
I bought the Colt after being frustrated with my Freud for years. What an improvement. It can be used with one hand and the hole in the base is big enough for my most used bits. I should have gotten it a long time ago. Box is big enough for bit and tool storage.

Awesome little Router
This is the perfect router for just about everything. Big enough opening for 1-1/4 hinge bit for 5/8 radius hinges. Light weight and easy to handle. A great deal for the price. Don't hesitate to buy this router, you won't be disappointed.

A great hand held router.
I received the reconditioned Colt router for Christmas this year so I have not used it very much. I have used a friends Colt router and like it very much for hand held use. The reconditioned router looks and operates like a new router. This is the third reconditioned power tool that I have purchased from CPO and they all have been problem free and work great.

Easy To Use
Everything you'd expect from a BOSCH!
I purchased the colt to be used for sign carving, edging and template work. I added a Pat Warner sub-base, which enhances control, balance and visability. The bits change easily and it is a smooth, yet powerful router. I especially like being able to round over long boards and curves with one hand. I own many BOSCH products for a reason...they are superb! I saved a good deal buying reconditioned and apart from very minor cosmetic blemishes outside the motor, it arrived clean and flawless. You will like the long cord and the fact that it protrudes out of harms way. This is one of many CPO products I have purchased. [...] and the price unbeatable.

Good things come in small packages
I do woodworking as a hobby and I bought this to use on a project that needs inlay work. The Colt is easy to control and very powerful for its size which made this part of the project much easier than I thought it would be. I tried other bits it the Colt just to see what it can do and was surprised with its versatility. Once I am done with this project the very next thing I am going to do is built a spot for this tool that is easy to get to because I can see that I will be reaching for this tool often. This is a great tool and even though it was reconditioned it was close to new. If you are thinking of buying a palm router, think no more buy this one.

Handiest and most used router I ever had
It seems the only things I use my bigger routers for these days are under my router table and when I need a plunge job as this one has lots of power for most other jobs. I like it a lot!

Date 3/9/10 - I have had it about a year now and it was a reconditioned one.

Very handy router
This is actually the second Colt I've owned. The first one was used mostly in a cnc machine and performed very well until it died. I don't blame the router for that, it ran much much more than a typical user would run it.

For hand use, it's balanced very well and easy to use, even with one hand. The accessories that come with it are very handy too.

Will this work to cut 3" X 4" oval shape 7/8" thick wood?
Cracker on Jun 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend using Colt Variable Speed Palm Router to cut an oval shape in 7/8" stock. That would stretch the capabilities of this tool. Cut this shape on a bandsaw or use a jigsaw.

What size bit do I need for this. I purchased a set that said would fit all models and can not get the bit to fit.
Tina on Jan 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 1. The collect accepts standard 1/4-inch bits to give you job flexibility, with a maximum diameter of 1-5/16 inch.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
