Rated 5 out of 5 by Palm Router this is an excellent piece of kit and makes hanging doors so much easier . 4 Feb 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy I purchased this to install fire strips into doors, usually I would use a bigger 2 handed one which takes time due to holding the door and the router. This is amazing, easy to control and you only need 1 hand! 2 Jan 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little router This is a great little router for freehand use. Easy to hold and control with fine adjustment of the depth of cut. Powerful, but doesn't run away. Far easier to control than my standard two handed one. 18 Dec 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Useless Literally useless. Had to go back into store to exchange for a new one 3 times. They would work for ten minutes and then the bit collet would literally fall apart and let the bit come flying out at speed. Have now exchanged for a makita. Couldn't fault screw fix on returns though, hassle free. 1 Dec 2015

Bits for 33000 rpm

Are there any bits for sale that are rated for the speed of this router? The titan bit kits for 1/4 collett only go to 24000.

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.
