The Bosch GKF12V-25N is a compact cordless palm router that runs on Bosch’s 12V Max platform. It has an EC Brushless motor and a unique design that positions your hand directly over the surface being routed. The motor runs at a max 13,000 rpm and is reported to have a runtime of about 23 feet of round-over per Ah of battery. It has an easy-change spindle lock, fast macro depth adjustment, and a fine depth adjustment knob that changes 0.04 inch per revolution of the dial. An internal sensor stops the motor if the router is dropped while running. Cost: $150 (tool only).
