Default My Bosch Colt

I just bought this off craigslist today. It is a Bosch Colt with a case, guide, wrenches, and 5 bits. It looks brand new. The guy said he used it one time. I paid $50.

I think this little router will be real handy.

the perfect router for that 1/8'' RO bit...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

Makes ya feel like you got away with something. Nice. I really enjoy using the Colt.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I think that will be my first bit I buy. What will be a good 1/8 RO bit?

Hey stick, I ordered a Freud 1/8 RO bit from CPO for $27 off eBay no shipping charge. I will give it a try. I guess I am set.

I think my router is a variable speed. Is there a fixed speed one also?

It is also a good choice for sign making and trimming off little hangover parts, such as box joints, with a flush trim bit. Look into the plunge base if you want to do signs. It will cost more than what you paid for the router, unless you can find one used.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
