Default Bosch Colt Question

I'm looking at purchasing a Bosch Colt to complement my table mounted router. For those of you that own the Colt, do you also have the plunge base for it, and if so, have you found it to be useful? Thanks.

Also Yes and Yes. I could probably do without the fixed base.

The plunge base makes it that much more versatile. You usually get a pretty good break on the price of the extra base when you buy it as a package deal. much cheaper than adding later after you realize you wish you had to start with.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Double yes here too. Get both at the same time and the plunge base is less.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thank you all for your comments. I did indeed find that buying them together was a lot cheaper and I'll be taking your advice. Amazon has the combo set on sale for $162.99 w/ free shipping. I believe the non-sale separate price of these would be around $210.

I have the Colt Router and it came with plunge attachment. I have used it with no issues. NOw let me back up a bit. I am at best a novice wood worker. So I also, look to others for help. But I have the router you have mentioned. It has done for me for what I needed to do. Good piece of equipment. If you look at the purchase of together vs. separate, itis better to purchase both at once.

Wouldn't be without the plunge base. Indpendent of the "plunge" aspect the "handles" add an extra dimension to the control of the router.
