very handy tool needed a small router for every day use this does the job also bought plunge base adapter easy to use and light weight 24 Mar 2015
Compact powerful router Having used this router over the last 6 months it still amazes me in how versatile it is. Whether its routing out for hinges on a door, or your trimming laminate off the edge of a worktop it cuts through these operations with ease. Build quality is good and with micro adjustment for setting the height you can be sure to get your cutter set correctly. The locking spindle does away with the need for 2 spanners so changing tooling is effortless. The fence on the other hand isn't the best and care must be taken to ensure all wing nuts are tight otherwise it will move. A welcome addition to this is the plunge base, where you can even use a guide bush to assist with template work. If your looking for a compact, powerful and very versatile 1/4 chuck router look no further this has all jobs covered. 11 Mar 2015
Bosch palm router+plunge base I bought this with the plunge and I'm loving it. I keep try to find other jobs I can use it for! With the plunge base its a really versatile tool that can be used on different jobs. With the standard base you can work in restricted areas and with the plunge base you get good stability with a controlled plunge action. Pros: - Well made, solid to use - Versatile - good price for what you get Cons: - Limited viability through the standard base when working at depth (I've seen other palm routers with poly-carbonate bases so you can always see where your cutting. - The fine depth adjustment on the standard base works well but I'm concerned how it will stand the test of time as its a half thread in Aluminum with a steel screw running in it. The fine depth adjustment is dis-engaged by twisting the stand relative to the router body so the threads pull apart. This can mean that when twisted back together the threads can slip against each if not held in the correct position. so I can see the aluminium stripping in time if not used with TLC. But over all, i'm very pleased with it. 11 Mar 2015
Adequate Powerful enough motor. Not too well balanced. Depth settings difficult to adjust accurately and maintain. Micro depth adjustment is there, however it is too easy to lose the datum completely. Good design ideas but not well executed. Does the job, but could have been far better. Value for money - maybe. 13 Feb 2015

Answer: 
Hi Emile, to do this using the GKF600 you would need the separate plunge base attachment (Screwfix code 67321), or alternatively you could use any other router which already has a plunge base included. You would then need to either buy or make a circle cutting guide/jig with a 610mm radius, you could use this in conjunction with the plunge router in order to cut your 1220mm hole.
