Would highly recommend! Bought this Palm router to hang a few doors after watching a YouTube vid... I researched the market for reasonably priced routers for the couple of things I wanted to do and this came out on top as it has proved itself to have done! I was dubious from others reviews but definitely worth the money! Plunger also purchased and proven vital for the set! 17 Jul 2015
Excellent Product This is the best in its range of palm routers. I recently bought this and in less than a week of purchase have not only used it on laminate routing but all sorts of flush routing. The people at Screwfix were also very helpful and supportive. Highly recommended both the product and screwfix. 12 Jul 2015

Answer: 
Yes you can but you need very precise handling of the router. It simply depends on how steady your handling of the device is. As far as the device is concerned, this specific item will definitely help do it if you are up for a challenge.
hint - Get some number stencils to use as guide.

Answer: 
Hi, thanks for your question. This router can be used for freehand work, although if working on something important we would always recommend using a guide or jig to minimise any chance of making mistakes or damaging the workpiece.

Hi Phillip, this version includes the GKF600 tool itself with the standard rectangular footplate that's shown in all the images, plus a parallel guide, a 1/4" collet & nut and a spanner for loosening it, plus a moulded plastic storage case to keep everything in.

I bought this item late last week and it was exactly as shown in the picture. It also has a good quality spanner for the Colet. The Colet is also supplied with the device.

Answer: 
Hi, thanks for your question. The foot plate isn't exactly square, I've just measured one in our workshop so can confirm it's 9.0cm x 9.8cm which is approximately 3 1/2" by 3 7/8", hopefully that will be suitable for your needs.

Answer: 
First get a stencil for the dimension you need. Then any router will do the job. If you can't get a stencil, you can still cut the circle. first draw the circle you need. make a slightly bigger circle around that and cut the outer circumference in a coarse manner using a plunge bit. Then use a flush trim bit to bring it to the size you need.

A diameter of 122 cm is large. So I would suggest you get a heavy duty full size plunge router instead of the palm version.You can use most of the plunge router brands for a flush cut also. For the diameter you need, it will be no problem.

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.
