Bosch PR20EVSNK Variable Speed Palm Router Review

The Bosch PR20EVS Colt variable-speed palm-grip router works great for edging. Precise, accurate, and twist lock coarse & fine adjust works well, which was essential for us. A really great tool from Bosch.

It has a nice weight, power adjustments and soft start are standard features on this one. This tool excels at edging tasks like coves, ogees, round overs, etc. Fine adjustments to cutter height are easy, and no tools are needed for depth adjustment.

It’s quiet compared to other routers we’ve used. Really great for a single hand router and its compact design is suitable for 1/4 inch bits. Setup is fast, and changing bases is a snap.

For adjustments, it’s easy, but we recommend keeping it clean and greasing the fine adjustment mechanism to keep it in top condition. The base is good for trimming in hard to reach areas.

Offset base has its own roller and bushing guide which is useful for stabilizing the router and preventing gouging. Also, it works well for accurate joins between two laminate paths. We liked using this, and it has an excellent adjustment mechanism. It has a high-quality aluminum base. It held its depth well without much wiggle or movement. We found the fine adjustment easy to operate.
