Bosch GKF125CEN 1.25 HP Variable Speed Palm Router with LED

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
What’s Included:
  • Colt 1.25 HP (Max) Variable-Speed Palm Router - GKF125CEN
  • Fixed Base - PR101
  • Collet Chuck Wrench
  • 1/4 In. Self-Releasing Collet Chuck

Great Handheld Router, but... much as I like the Colt it could use a more controlled height adjuster. Also, photos at one retailer show the edge guide but it is an accessory. My retailer sold me one with free shipping after I pointed out the photo with it and no mention of what's ‘in the box’. An edge guide should be included with any router...

Another home run for Bosch
I own many Bosch power tools, long life, accuracy, and innovation keeps them my go to as far as tools are concerned. the new 1¼hp Colt is another leap forward. the extra muscle, led lighting, and the fact that there is a plunge base available make it a great addition to my workshop. Also the fact that the plunge base has the same footprint as the 1hp version makes my jigs and plates interchangeable. Great job Bosch!

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.
