Details

The Bosch PR20EVS Colt Electronic Variable-Speed Palm Router combines power, precision and versatility in a small-sized tool. It has a 1.0 HP, 5.6 amp motor that spins at a variable speed of 16,000 - 35,000 RPM. The variable speed dial is conveniently mounted on top of the tool body. The router features Constant Response circuitry, which maintains a consistent speed by detecting heavy loads and increasing power to maintain the selected rpm. It features soft-start circuitry, which reduces startup torque. Additionally, depth adjustment is simple; just align and lower the motor and then lock the router in position with the clamping level. Micro-fine adjustments are equally effortless, thanks to the wheel on the back of the router's base. It accepts standard 1/4 in. bits for flexibility, with an impressive max cutter diameter of 1-5/16 in. The motor housing has a palm-shaped, rubber over-molded grip that allows for comfortable operation and the included rugged aluminum fixed base is durable, solid and precise.

  • Powerful 5.6 amp motor produces 1.0 max HP and 16,000 - 35,000 RPM
  • Rugged aluminum fixed base is durable, solid and precise
  • Fast and precise depth adjustment system allows both macro and micro adjustment
  • Unique finger support pockets for additional stability, especially when trimming edges

Powerful & Versatile for Its Size
I have two routers that at one time alternated use, depending on the project. The much larger PC router is heavy and sometimes difficult to maneuver. I've discovered over time that the Bosch Colt Router can do it all. Its smaller design means that it is more agile when using in a less than horizontal surface. The barrel adjustment can be made quickly using the outside clamp or it has a micro adjustment that can be engaged for finer adjustments. The working surface and cutter are easily adjustable as well, so that you can change the plate, router collar, and/or router bit to fit your particular application. This machine also controls the initial torque twist that must be anticipated on most routers. The many attachments for the Pony give it incredible amount of versatility. In looking for a router, this is the one that I would recommend woodworkers start with. Once used it will probably eliminate the need for others. It contains the design and quality that Bosch is know for.

Easy to control, even one handed!
I purchased this tool for mortising an entry door jam for the garage. The old one had rotted out in places, I replaced it with PVC jamb that was not mortised for the hinges or lock plate. It was the first Router I've used. I tried some trial cuts on the old wood jamb and set the depth of cut. Luckily while on the old jamb, the bearing collar on the cutter bit came loose. No real harm done. Just glad it happened on the old stuff! The bit was a Woodhaven bit that I purchased with the jig plate for the hinges. I made sure the set screw was TIGHT! Then carefully set to cutting the mortises on the PVC. Unsure how well it would cut that material I took it slow at first, but found that it had no trouble routing out the material. I was able to use wood chisels to square the lock plate hole corners in the jamb.
Setting the depth of cut took some time. Often, as it said in the owners manual, when you clamped and locked the setting it would change slightly. This was an aggravation, but I got through it and the job turned out looking very professional. Bosch makes a plunge attachment for this router. I believe the depth of cut might be easier set using this. I may purchase on in the future.

What is the max depth of wood this router can be used on? And can this router be used on hard woods?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can run 1/4" straight bits around 1/4" deep for grooving or plowing out material in hardwoods. It will do small round overs to about a 1/4". I mainly use it for trimming plastic laminates.
Would this be good for countertop laminate trimming?

BEST ANSWER: Yes excellent machine. Be sure to read the instructions on adjusting the base.
