Item #

Rating:
42% of 100
Designed to work with the PR011 Plunge Base for the Colt Palm Router (#45145, sold separately). The PR012 Dust Hood Kit eliminates dust at the source for far less mess, and a healthier work environment. The port can be positioned toward or away from the user, and angles upward so it's easy to use when routing further in toward the middle of the workpiece. Connects to standard 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" hoses.

Bosch Dust Port Hood Kit
I have slightly modified this item to fit my Craftsman router. It fits the base perfectly with a slight modification and relocation of the mounting holes. It works as advertised. Down side is only that it should be made of heaver plastic (reason for 4 stars). Care must be taken when using it not to put strain on the offset

It hasn't been adapted as of yet.
I expect it will adapt just fine for the router plate. I'm still in the process of putting everything together.

What my husband wanted
The dust hood kit was what my husband needed for his wood shop.
I am really happy that it arrived before Christmas and not broken. The shipping time was great --HOWEVER the way Rockler chose to package it for my $5.99 shipping left a lot to be desired. That is why I knocked a star off the rating.
It arrived ONLY in a plastic bag type envelope -- no padding, no wrapping whatsoever.
It is a plastic part, so I consider myself fortunate that it wasn't broken in the shipping process. You may reconsider your shipping especially since I paid $5.99 for only a plastic bag it arrived in.

Vac Port
A very useful addition to my Bosch Palm Router accessories. A must to have. An easy "on and off" attachment. This does the job nicely.
Mine also cracked after I used it many uses.
Perhaps there was just too much stress on the thin section. (The material NEEDS to be a much THICKER cross-section). I attribute the fracture as a result of to much stress on it---the cross section is quite thin.
I repaired the fracture using epoxy cement. Perhaps I should have used a plastic cement. I'll make that attempt if the epoxy doesn't hold.
BTW---I'm using a 1-1/4" flexible hose.
My plan to remedy and reinforce the shroud, by making an 1/8 to 1/4" thick insert plate from plexiglass, and bond it to the inside, of the shroud.
I shouldn't have to do this; however, with products that don't hold up, I have to fix the problem myself.
BTW---I have two of the Bosch PR20 palm routers, fixed base and plunge base, and a variety of bases and several associated accessories, and find them very useful. Many times, they get a lots of use.
The PR20 is great for use in the Rockler Mini-Router table.

Works for dust, but won't fit with other Bosch accessories.
Works for dust extraction on my plunge router, but won't fit onto the router with the quick-change Bosch template guide set.

Not really a fault of Rockler, more of a short-sighted design on Bosch's part. It would have been very simply to raise the plastic shroud so that Bosch could fit their own accessories onto the router base, but this is not the only design flaw associated with the 1617 plunge base.

Good concept; extremely poor quality
The concept is good but the quality extremely poor. It is fabricated using a cheap, flimsy plastic. After only my third use, it is already cracked. Very surprising coming from a reputable company like Bosch and especially shocking that Rockler would act as a distributor for such an inferior product.

works great if it doesn't break
I am in the process of buying another one even though the other one broke within a week of purchasing. This will be my third one. The first one lasted for three years before breaking. I really wish they made this out of a sturdier material. I have not yet found a different option to use with my Bosch Routeer that works as well.

different base plunger adapter
I ordered this thinking it would fit the Bosch hand held router I purchased but you have to have the pro version base plunger in order for this to fit. It does not fit with the standard base plate that comes with the Bosch hand held router.

Poor durability
I was happy with the fit and function but it broke after 1 use. Maybe I got a bad one but would think it would be a little more sturdy than that.

Like the idea of less wood dust flying around and I have the router this goes with.

Will this work on the gkf125ce model ?

Would it be possible to fit this base to a Bosch fixed 1617EVS fixed-base router? I have a special application that I need to of.

BEST ANSWER: I checked Bosch site and I'd say no. Mine router is the plunge model and it fits fine.
Is there’s something that does this for the normal bosh routers?
