Editor's Review: Trim Routers

review date: September 1, 2008

Well outfitted and driven by a soft-start motor.

 The Bosch was the only router with both a good fence and a threaded fine-adjustment screw, with the added advantage of a quick coarse adjustment. Although the fine adjuster didn’t work as well as I would have liked, and the depth setting tended to shift off the mark as it was locked in place, these traits were not deal-breakers. The bit was a few degrees out of square with the base, but a paper shim under the plastic baseplate squared it. With a contoured, flat-topped housing, this trimmer fit well in my hand, and the soft-start motor made the tool easier to handle. The shaft-lock button required an awkward grip, but the depth-lock lever worked nicely. This router is available as a larger kit with specialty bases for laminate work (about $175).
