Colt(TM) Variable Speed Electronic Palm Router Kit - 1 HP is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the only trim router to own. This trim router is the best one to own. This is the woodworkers choice. Don't be fooled by the other ones that have flooded the market (RIDGID, Porter Cable, DeWalt). Although I'm a fan of their tools, the Bosch Colt trim router is the one to own. Has ample power and good ergonomics for a trim router which is important. I can route mortises for locksets with the door still on the hinge! Also makes great work of doing roundovers and trim details on long narrow workpieces. My only gripe is that I wish it had a soft start feature where the router slowly gets up to speed. This makes controlling the initial startup on narrow pieces a little easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best small router. I bought my Bosch Colt over one year ago to use in my woodshop where I have five standard size routers in use. The Colt is excellent for formica and edge profiles. A fellow woodworker ask me last November if I could recomend a good small trim router so I said buy a Bosch Colt and if you don't like it I will buy it from you. It is now April and he has not called to say he would like to sell it to me. I plan to buy another one this year from Lowe's since he won't sell me his. Lowe's has the best price I have found for this router. My next project is a new set of wormy chestnut cabinets for our kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product value This is a good product for the money. It performs as you would expect from Bosch, and the quality is first rate. I was a little dissappointed in the quality of the edge guard. I have the larger Bosch router and the edge guard for it is far superior in quality and functionality. With the edge guard for ther trim router you are limited to minimal adjustments and fair quality. Also, non of the dust extractor attachments work with the larger unit. You wind up having several different attachments just to support dust extraction. If this was a Festool, everything would be uniform and compatible. But then, it doesn't cost like a Festool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make this your first router Not that this router will take care of every routing need you may have, but it will certainly help you build confidence. It is very easy to control and adjustments are precise once you know how the tool works. (Read the instructions, don't assume it's obvious) It will handle small routing jobs very easily. Round overs, small rabbets and dados are a quick, easy, clean and accurate asssuming you use a good bit of course. Before you use the edge guide, I would recommend making a wooden fence for it, but thats pretty standard for any router. My only suggestion for a design improvment would be to redesign the on/off switch so if you put it on the bench upside-down (a pretty typical thing to do with a router), it turns off. Without that, you have to remember to turn it off before you put it down. Its a safety thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic router I have owned several routers before this one but never a trim router. I initially picked this up to do some finish work on a stair railing I was building but have since found that this is fast becoming one of the most used tools in my shop. It works great with roundover bits and does a great job of cutting dado's in plywood. At the end of the day this gets an A+ for quality and at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch is my hero With this tool and many others bosch has helped me create many beautiful things. Used so much need to replace black plastic base because it has worn down. Thousands of lineal feet of routing and its still going strong. Good case also. Would like to get bottom and top fences that have vac ports, I have seen in bosch catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised I first had the dealt in my hand as it was twenty dollars cheaper......But after looking at the micro adjuster on the Bosch...I thought...looks like a good add on to have. My project was cutting out my hinges n solid core doors. This Bosh worked very very well.....No problem at all.....Worth every penny!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me This router comes with an integral solid metal base that I could not see through to see the workpiece. I chose to return it and then bought anothor competing brand that had a clear base and LED light built in.
