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
  • Finger support pockets for additional stability, especially when trimming edges
  • Palm-grip design with soft grip, making it the most comfortable router in its class
  • Colt 1.25 HP (Max) Variable-Speed Palm Router - GKF125CEN

Smooth Operator
Bought specifically for cutting in butterfies in natural edge slabs. Operation was smooth precise easy to guide free hand.
The instruction sheet was very good.
More info on attachments would be helpful

Excellent Addition to the shop
I am a novice woodworker and have had several projects with edge profiles - I picked up this router and it has been absolutely excellent! I am pleased with the simplicity of use and the power. Happy to have it in my shop.

New to Routers
I actually bought the GKF125CEK which is the same router but the CEK came with a hard case and the edge guide. I bought this for some upcoming projects and have only made a couple test cuts on scrap wood while it was still in the 30 day return window. I picked up a Bosch 3/4 inch straight bit and a Bosch 3/8 inch round over bit at the same time. Read the instructions twice, once before doing anything with the router, and once to reference while installing a bit and making the depth adjustment; they were clear and easy to follow. I am impressed at the performance: easy to control, easy to manipulate, easy to move through the wood with clean, sharp cuts. All the controls are well placed and easy to use. And if it couldn't get any better, it was on sale. I am impressed!

I have two larger routers but this little gem will be very handy for smaller jobs especially the ones away from my shop. Really feels nice in my hands and operates just as well as the many other Bosh tools I own.

Comfortable and Easy to Adjust and Use
Purchased this router to replace another palm router I'd given to my son-in-law. I appreciate the feel of the grip, accessibility of the controls/adjustments and the ease with which the bits can be changed.

This Changes Everything!
This router is in a class by itself. Powerful and totally controllable. I never liked conventional models, therefore I gravitated to 95% of my work being done with hand tools. I saw this tool and after a lot of research on it because of the way it looked, I actually picked one up and had to have it. It has a hand tool feel with the power like none other. My hat is off to the designers and engineers that came up with this! Great work guys!!

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.
