Bosch - Laminate Trimmer PR20EVSNK
Bosch's laminate trimmer is light weight, adjustable, setting a new standard in small routers for both furniture and cabinetmaking.
The new Bosch laminate trimmer is a beautifully designed tool. This router is not just for laminate work. I think that the tool’s light weight, adjustability, and ergonomics will make it the new standard in small routers for both furniture and cabinetmaking. The motor is wrapped in a rubber collar for a positive, comfortable grip. Height adjustment is excellent. The variable-speed motor has a soft start and is relatively quiet. Changing bits is easy once you get used to the sequence that releases the base from the housing. The model I tested (PR20EVSNK) includes the variable-speed trimmer and the additional bases for $200. You can buy just the trimmer with a fixed base (PR20EVSK) for $120, or a single-speed version (PR10E) for $99.
