I would recommend this and the Bosch router
Solid construction and precision. Really enjoy using this attachment to mortise out some door hinges.

Adds versatility to your Bosch Colt router
I recommend the plunge base or if you are in the market for a trim router buy the two base set. I bought the precision edge guide as well. Its easy to use. It allows me to make mortises with ease. I own a Porter Cable and Milwaukee routers as well and they are great machines but now I reach for the Bosch Colt first. The small size and low center of gravity is a plus when mortising small stock.

Super easy to use
The shape just invites your hand to fit around it. So easy to control that way.

One of the greatest purchases yet
I have begun doing oval table tops and my homemade circle/oval jig needed this plunge router so I can use the Bosch Colt rather than a 1 1/2 horse Porter Cable router. It works Big League.

works great with this router
I didn't like the fixed base on this router. It had a tendency to slip and move from its setting. When I saw the plunge base, I bought it and am very happy with it. I have 5 other routers that I use, but this little router is getting plenty of use in my shop now,

I love the plunge base. The only thing I didn't like was the base plate it wouldn't accept a guide bushing. I bought a mortise centering base at Rockler (057523) for 19.99 and it works just fine.

Bosch Plunge Base on Colt Router
I purchased the Bosch Plunge Base for the Colt Router and used it yesterday for the first time - WOW!
It works great. I especially like the feature where it locks in any depth position so you do not have to constantly push down.

leonard s on Feb 29, 2016

I bought this to use with my colt router and with the milescraft signpro 1212 but the base plate on the milescraft doesn't match any of the holes for this base....any ideas?
Gary B on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not familiar with the Milescraft Sign Pro product. I use the InterLock SignMaker's Templates with my Colt and Plunge Base and it all works extremely well. I also really like the way it lays out the letters properly. I just wish there were more fonts...
