Details

The PR20EVSPK Bosch Colt Palm Grip 5.6 Amp 1 HP Variable-Speed Combination Plunge and Fixed-Base Router Kit is a versatile tool that's ideal for performing custom carpentry, trimming laminate flooring or deck planks, mortising hinges, dovetailing and a host of other at-home and professional jobs. The PR20EVSPK owes its robust performance to a 1 HP 5.6 amp motor that spins at a variable-speed of 16000 to 35,000 RPM and has a soft start function that reduces start-up torque. The PR20EVSPK pack includes the PR20EVS router motor and the PR011 fixed and plunge base. Both bases feature ergonomic, soft-grip areas for comfort use and enhanced control. A tool-less motor clamp allows users to quickly remove the router from the bases with ease.
The new PR011 Plunge Base is designed to expand the versatility of Bosch palm routers. The PR011 offers exceptionally smooth plunge action and simple microfine depth adjustments with depth scales printed on the tool in both inch and metric measurements. The plunge base offers fast and accurate depth settings with a 7-step depth stop, two of which are adjustable. The PR011 ft.s plunge lock lever is conveniently located near the left handle and springs to the locked position when released, as most users prefer. A clear subbase allows woodworkers to see their work piece at all times, and the unit's precision centering design makes it easy to adjust the subbase to keep it on the intended cut line when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and other guidance devices.
Features:
  • 1 HP output for a wide array of routing applications
  • Soft start reduces start-up torque
  • Constant Response circuitry monitors and maintains speed under load for consistent performance and overload protection
  • Most ergonomic router in its class with contoured soft grip for exceptional comfort
  • Variable-speed dial for matching speed to workpiece and task
  • Tool-free conversion quick-clamp system allows motor to be easily adjusted or moved from base to base
  • Durable, solid and precise aluminum non-cantilevered fixed base
  • Rugged plunge base with smooth plunge action with plunge lock release lever
  • 7-Step adjustable depth stop turret plus microfine adjustment on depth rod for fast and accurate bit depth setting
  • Angled cord exit helps keep cord out of the way
  • Precision centering design makes it easy to keep bit on intended cutline when using jigs, templates, dovetail fixtures and similar guidance devices
  • Straight edge guide guides router in fixed base along edges of workpiece or up to 3-5/8 in. from edge

very versified
Bought this to do string inlay. Works great, the slow start with small bits is a big help. Also was pleased that many of the accessories, RA1054 (edge guide, RA 1126, RA 1100 (template guide parts) that I had from my Bosch 1617 big router were compatible. Now using the small router more than the big one, it is so versified.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago and it is doing exactly as I had hoped. I wanted to created a bowl shape to hold baseballs in a display case. Couldn't be happier with the final product.

Great Quality and Excellent Results
I use this router to make acoustic amplifiers cutting the sound tunnels and phone rests. I replaced a yellow and black competitors palm router and plunge base with this Bosch Colt and is the best thing I did to make work easier. The Bosch Colt even though having 1/4hp less chews up hardwoods like Bubinga, Jatoba and Mahogany faster and smoother. While I cannot prove it the router seems to start smoother and have less vibration compared to my old yellow and black. Additionally, the Bosch Colt is better ergonomically both the regular unit as well as the plunge base and the materials are a higher quality and feel better. Scales and indicators are easy to adjust and easy to read. All in all seems to be the best small compact palm router on the market, hands down.

Very pleased
I am very pleased with the PR20EVSPK Colt router and plunge base so far. I've had it for a month and used it for a few jobs. This is my first Bosch tool.  Right away the quality is obvious.  The engineering is beautiful.  I own a guitar repair shop and I use it mostly for template routing and for routing straight channels for splines. I like the size of the Colt, it is much smaller than my other routers, and much easier to handle on top of a guitar.  And it is MUCH quieter too. It still has plenty of power for what I do.  I recommend getting the plunge base. It makes it simple to make very precise adjustments.

Bosch PR20VSPK
I purchased this router several months ago but just recently started using it.  I have used it with a flush cut pattern bit and a mdf pattern to shape the hole in a cabinet top for a router table top.  I also fitted a walnut edge to a formica table top and used a 45 degree router bit to edge the table top.

It router size makes me want to use it rather than one of my larger Bosch routers.  It had plenty of power for the two jobs that I used it for.  I found the grip size and power switch location to be ideally sized and located.

Everything you need in a small router
This palm router rocks
The two wrench colloet system is far better than those hard to use push button locks
I have two Colts,one for free hand and another for a jig.

Fantastic - So Easy to Maneuver
I don't write reviews ever, but I picked this thing up from Home Depot as an open box item, and thought I'd give it a shot.  I made a circle jig out of 1/4" MDF and I've been using this thing to make speaker cutouts and trim rings for custom speaker projects.  I bought a carbide bit for it and am plunging it in ~1/4", and this is perfectly capable of routing 1/2" MDF in a couple swipes.  I wouldn't run it for very long doing this, but it just makes it so much better being able to use this thing with one hand on small 3-6.5" cutouts.  You can see your work better and not having all the torque come on at once lets you get set up safer.  Honestly the best tool I've ever purchased, completely beyond my expectations.  

I'll probably make a benchtop router table for this thing for doing picture frames and drawer side rabbet cuts.  I'm not using it commercially so there's no reason for me to keep using a bulky 2.25HP router.

Great, compact, powerful 1/4-inch shank router.
This is a fine router. Easy to use speed control, one open-end wrench and lock button makes changing bits fast and simple. So much power in such a small precision tool. I have three, 1/2-inch shank routers, starting with a 3-1/2 horse power plunge router, but I find myself using this router for quick set-up routing in tight places. More than enough power for my 1/4-inch carbide bits in hardwood. A smooth cut because of the power and the handy speed control. I'm really glad I decided to buy this Bosch product..
