Bosch 12V Palm Router



Trim routers have always been great power tools to have around the workshop, but now that Bosch has offered a brushless battery-powered version, it’s even easier to use. For adding smaller edge profiles to a piece, trimming plastic laminate, machining small dadoes and groove and many other functions, their GKF12V-25N is a game-changer. The bare tool is light at 2.2 lb, includes an easy-change spindle lock, fast macro depth adjustment and handy fine depth adjustment, making it not only functional, but enjoyable to use. Powered by a 12V battery, it offers a surprising amount of run-time with the smaller bits it’s designed for. Its ergonomic offset design allows it to be grasped naturally, making it comfortable for extended use. Visit boschtools.com for more information.
