Though very compact at just 7-1/2'' tall, and lightweight at 3.3 pounds, The 1-HP Bosch Colt is not just for laminate trimming. It's more than shop-worthy for common tasks like hinge mortising, edge forming, slot cutting, dovetailing, window cutouts, decorative inlays and more. Easy to handle and nimble in tight spaces, you'll be amazed at the variety of uses for which it comes in handy. Like its larger relatives, the Colt features soft-start circuitry and Constant Response™ circuitry for consistent speed under load. Depth adjustment is simple with the clamping lever and micro-adjust wheel on the back of the base.


Features:

  • Top-mounted variable speed dial lets you match speed to workpiece and task
  • Soft-start reduces start-up torque
  • Constant Response Circuitry monitors and maintains speed under load
  • Quick-Clamp System allows motor to be easily adjusted or moved from base to base
  • Convenient front spindle lock for fast, easy one-wrench bit changes.
  • Rubberized grip and unique finger support pockets provide additional support when trimming edges
  • All-metal straight-edge guide directs router along edges of workpiece or up to 3-5/8" from edge
  • Fast and precise bit depth adjustment system with micro-fine adjustment dial
  • Accepts 1/4" shank bits with a diameter of up to 1-5/16''
  • Rugged aluminum base is durable and precise
  • Angled cord exit helps keep cord out of the way

    Terrific!
    Though an older, corded design, this little workhorse is perfect for my lutherie shop and many light wood routing needs.

    I have a number of Bosch tools, they all perform great.
    George K on Jul 15, 2019
    Been using these routers since they came out and they are great. I have at least 6 and keep different bits in them for specific operations. In a professional shop, it's more cost effective than paying someone to change bits, especially at this price. And they last for years.

    Love Bosch routers and wanted a smaller one for smaller projects

    More than once, I've had need of a smaller more portable router, and found it cumbersome and inconvenient to use a full sized one.

    Does it come in a case?
    rleeq on Jul 31, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: No, just packed in a cardboard box. I was glad it did not have a case which I wouldn't have used.
