You gonna love it Topher! The Colt is my favorite go to palm router. Actually its my only palm router *L* I don't count the old craftsman trim router
cuz I can't find it.

Once you become SOLD on the thing, take a look at the plunge base available for it. Well worth the investment

I have purchased this same router from Bosch. The reason being two fold, one it will fit the Piranha Routing Machine, I hope to buy and secondly it seems to fit the projects I have in mind to do with as a trim router now. Good Luck with yours.

The plunge base for the Colt has the best turret design of any of the small routers. The dust collection adapter works very well. The handles are very comfortable and the base is very stable. With or without the plunge base you can build a small ski jig for increased control like the one shown here with a Bosch 1601.
