Product Overview


The Bosch GKF125CEN Colt variable-speed palm-grip router with 1.25 horsepower (max) lets you feel the power in your hand. This Bosch Colt Palm Router has an ergonomic palm-grip design with soft-grip to make it very comfortable to hold, making it typically more convenient to use than larger routers. But it also has ample power, with a 1.25 HP (max) rating. Far more than a laminate trimmer, it's the ideal tool for rounding-over deck planks and railings, hinge mortising, decorative edge forming, slot cutting, window cutouts, decorative inlays, laminate trimming and more. The motor features soft-start circuitry, a variable-speed dial and Constant Response circuitry to maintain speed under load. Its PR101 fixed base features macro- and micro-fine depth adjustment and a centerable round subbase for easy guidance. The GKF125CEN Colt Palm Router package includes the router, self-releasing collet chuck and a comfortable forged collet chuck wrench.
  • Durable spindle lock for fast, easy bit changes
  • Ball-joint cord swivel for easiest cord positioning

Little Beast
I'm a professional woodworker that has owned just about every type of router and base that's out their, many of them are great machines and will get the job done...but this little baby is something special! Bosch has done a great job packing features that are useful and helpful, the like the LED light that is really beneficial and aids the user in seeing the cut. I like the form and shape it fits my hand perfectly and allows me to have a firm grip while using the tool. I like the improvements in power (1.25 hp with a reduction in vibration over earlier 1 hp models, as well as an improved height adjustment mechanism. If your looking for a great little router stop looking and get this little's a winner!

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 120 days.
