Happy with item and accessories included but very unhappy with the fact that the first time I used it, the casing that wraps around the machine that you twist to set your depth was on so tight (or wrong) that it scratched the depth numbers and lines on the machine. Which now impedes my view to setting the correct depth.

Took delivery of my Bosch GKF600 Palm Router/Laminate yesterday. It arrived. earlier than I expected so full marks to Power tool world and their courier. On opening it my first impression was that this was a serious bit of kit.I looked so well built and oozed quality, spoiled only by the fence which was rather crude to look at but heyho I haven't even fired it up yet but I get the feeling that I won't be disappointed with it. I have tried out various makes of power tool tools and wish now that I had stuck with the Pro Bosch and will in future.

The Bosch GFK 600 is my first router having just taken up woodwork as a hobby. Simple to use and results are fantastic. The deal and delivery from Powertool was excellent.

Really powerfull for size, and if purchased with plunge base makes it a very versatile tool

this is my first router and to say I'm happy is an understatement. I had used a router before so was familiar with the basics, this is advertised as a palm router/laminate trimmer but can honestly say it is capable of a whole lot more. it's early days yet but I have no worries that it will cope with all but the largest of bits.

This is a handy addition to the collection, packs plenty of power, only had the unit for over a week so only limited usage hence 4 stars . Running U grooves in the bottom of oak doors 10mm x19mm went through them no problem.

An absolute gem of a tool for any joiner or carpenter. Well built and so easy to use. The weight and size are well balanced with adjustments that allow for absolute precision. The best tool I've bought for some time!

The service from Powertoolworld.co.uk was excellent, free next day delivery and before lunch time! Fantastic! It gave me all afternoon to get use to the tool before using it on a clients work.
The GKF 600 is an exceptional tool and the additional bases you get with it have already come in useful. With the quick change system it makes changing them effortless. The one drawback is that there are so many accessories they don't all fit in the case. Small price to pay however.
Cheapest retailer I found and by no means a cheap service.
I can't recommend Bosch professional (Bosch Blue) highly enough. I've had good dealings with the manufacturer when there has been a fault in the past.

My Trend T11 was in for repair so I needed a router urgently. I have always thought that it would be useful to have a smaller router as well as the T11 so I bought this one. It performed well but I found it a bit fiddly setting it up. Disappointed I can't use the dust extractor bottom plate with the fence, so only suitable if using guide bearing cutters. Dust extraction is a must if using MDF particularly. Overall reasonably pleased.

Bought this to hang 10 fire doors with 3 100mm hinges and intermesent stirps, probably saved me half a days work, just on that job, but already used it on other jobs, GREAT bit of kit, and the service was very good too !!

Looking for an easier and faster way to do inlay work on some of my projects, I decided to invest in a 'palm router' and Powertool Ltd offered the best deal. The extra bases give the router more flexibility of use and after a few trial and error runs, I found the GFK600 very easy to use. It is powerful yet light to handle and with the 'edge parallel guide' fitted, I can make inlay lines very easily and quickly. 'Free hand' routing and trimming is also very easy. The only complaint I have is that it is not possible to fit the dust extraction adapter unless you fit the side handle sub-base but then you cannot use the parallel guide! I got around this by making my own sub base in hard wood and fitting the dust extraction adapter to that. A great piece of kit at a great price and delivered quickly - next day. You can't get better than that.

Lots of accessories - hopefully will use them. All but the extra large base fit in the carry case.
Very high rpm so you need decent bits otherwise they're blunt after one use.

excellent bit of kit with plenty of accesorries
Posted - 13 January 2014
Excellent price coupled with a first rate ordering and delivery service. The accessories make the product very versatile for a whole myriad of tasks.

This tool is just awesome, I originally bought it to route out for hinges and locks but its way more useful than that. My partner keeps giving me that smile that says arh! bless him, while I swap and change bits and accessories thinking of all the ways I can use this amazing tool. My larger router has now been resigned to a router table which I made with the tool. As for PTW great job, timed delivery with DPD, text messages to inform you and delivery on time, plus excellent price for tool, can't stop smiling lol!

Excellent service from Power Tool World.
The Laminate trimmer is everything I had hoped for and the angle base is just brilliant, the fact that it goes to 45 degrees one way and also 30 degrees the other, so with one single straight cutter you can do so many things!
