Bosch routers are versatile and highly creative power tools. Routers work on the principle of ‘machining’ or ‘milling’ the material, i.e. they cut off and remove small chips, giving the workpiece a new shape. Once you’ve got to know how useful they are, you won’t know how you did without them. Routers allow users to be creative, putting their ideas into practice. They are one of the most versatile power tools for working on wood. They enable you to work with an extremely high level of convenience and precision. Professional results can be achieved in comparatively little time and with precision.
Routers are suitable for:
There are many applications for a router, such as edge forming, grooving in wood, shaping, straight routing or groove cutting, core box routing, chamfering, mortising, laminate trimming, v-grooving and lettering, decorative grooving, frame routing, edge forming, drilling, rebating, profiling, rounding over, long-hole routing and copy routing.
The heart of the POF 1200 ACE is its motor, which makes the cutter (bit) rotate at speeds of up to 28,000 revolutions per minute. The motor position is on top of the milling cage, a kind of frame that allows the router bit to plunge into the material precisely from above with a maximum plunge depth or stroke of 55 mm.
