Default New Bosch Colt!

Just found a new model of Bosch Colt, 1.25 hp, which has a light. Comes in a kit with fixed and plunge bases, dialable speed control. Never saw this model before, but given Bosch's customer service and quality, it's a contender. Not the same at all as the previous Colt trim router. Even has a safety interlock that closes the front clear cover over the blade when running. Bosch GKF125CEPK Colt 1.25 HP (Max) Variable-Speed Palm Router Combination Kit. Give it a good look.

If I didn't have any trim routers, with plunge base kits I would certainly get one. However, I have 2 original Bosch colts with a plunge base. A Dewalt 610 kit, and the Makita trim router plunge kit. Not to mention the 3 trim routers from meynards. I am trimmed out! Every purchase was an "ON SALE" deal! I'm quite happy with all of them.

Thank you Tom for sharing!

That is a nice looking kit, Tom. I made a round plexi plate for my old fixed-base - it was kind of a pain because the old screw pattern wasn't centered around the bit.
