Safety Notes
General Power Tool Safety Warnings
Read all safety warnings and all
instructions. Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions may result in elec-
tric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
The term “power tool” in the warnings refers to
your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) Work area safety
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Clut-
tered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate power tools in explosive
atmospheres, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite the
dust or fumes.
c) Keep children and bystanders away
while operating a power tool. Distrac-
tions can cause you to lose control.
2) Electrical safety
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the plug in any way. Do not
use any adapter plugs with earthed
(grounded) power tools. Unmodified
plugs and matching outlets will reduce
risk of electric shock.
b) Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radia-
tors, ranges and refrigerators. There is
an increased risk of electric shock if your
body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool
will increase the risk of electric shock.
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the
cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from
heat, oil, sharp edges and moving parts.
Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for out-
door use. Use of a cord suitable for out-
door use reduces the risk of electric
f) If operating a power tool in a damp loca-
tion is unavoidable, use a residual cur-
rent device (RCD) protected supply. Use
of an RCD reduces the risk of electric
3) Personal safety
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not use a power tool
while you are tired or under the influ-
ence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating
power tools may result in serious person-
al injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment. Al-
ways wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask, non-skid
safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protec-
tion used for appropriate conditions will
reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure
the switch is in the off-position before
connecting to power source and/or bat-
tery pack, picking up or carrying the
tool. Carrying power tools with your fin-
ger on the switch or energising power
tools that have the switch on invites acci-
d) Remove any adjusting key or wrench be-
fore turning the power tool on. A wrench
or a key left attached to a rotating part of
the power tool may result in personal inju-
e) Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables
better control of the power tool in unex-
pected situations.
f) Dress properly. Do not wear loose cloth-
ing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing
and gloves away from moving parts.
Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can
be caught in moving parts.

g) If devices are provided for the connec-
tion of dust extraction and collection fa-
cilities, ensure these are connected and
properly used. Use of dust collection can
reduce dust-related hazards.
4) Power tool use and care
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the cor-
rect power tool for your application. The
correct power tool will do the job better
and safer at the rate for which it was de-
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off. Any power
tool that cannot be controlled with the
switch is dangerous and must be re-
c) Disconnect the plug from the power
source and/or the battery pack from the
power tool before making any adjust-
ments, changing accessories, or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety
measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of
children and do not allow persons unfa-
miliar with the power tool or these in-
structions to operate the power tool.
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain power tools. Check for mis-
alignment or binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts and any other condi-
tion that may affect the power tool’s op-
eration. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are
caused by poorly maintained power tools.
f) Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Prop-
erly maintained cutting tools with sharp
cutting edges are less likely to bind and
are easier to control.
g) Use the power tool, accessories and tool
bits etc. in accordance with these in-
structions, taking into account the work-
ing conditions and the work to be per-
formed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended
could result in a hazardous situation.
5) Service
a) Have your power tool serviced by a qual-
ified repair person using only identical
replacement parts. This will ensure that
the safety of the power tool is maintained.
Safety Warnings for Routers
f The allowable speed of the router bit must
be at least as high as the maximum speed
listed on the power tool. Accessories that
rotate faster than permitted can be de-
f Router bits or other accessories must fit ex-
actly in the tool holder (collet) of your ma-
chine. Routing bits that do not fit precisely in
the tool holder of the machine rotate irregu-
larly, vibrate heavily and can lead to loss of
f Apply the machine to the workpiece only
when switched on. Otherwise there is dan-
ger of kickback when the cutting tool jams in
the workpiece.
f Keep your hands away from the cutting area
and the cutting disc. Hold the auxiliary han-
dle with your second hand. When both
hands hold the machine, they cannot be in-
jured by the cutting disc.
f Never cut over metal objects, nails or
screws. The router bit can become damaged
and lead to increased vibrations.
f Hold the power tool only by the insulated
gripping surfaces when performing an oper-
ation where the cutting tool may contact
hidden wiring or its own cord. Contact with
a “live” wire will also make exposed metal
parts of the power tool “live” and shock the
f Use appropriate detectors to determine if
utility lines are hidden in the work area or
call the local utility company for assistance.
Contact with electric lines can lead to fire
and electric shock. Damaging a gas line can
lead to explosion. Penetrating a water line
causes property damage or may cause an
electric shock. Page 20 Tuesday, September 2, 2008 8:46 AM

Bosch Power Tools 1 609 929 N93 | (2.9.08)
f Do not use blunt or damaged router bits.
Blunt or damaged router bits cause in-
creased friction, can become jammed and
lead to imbalance.
f When working with the machine, always
hold it firmly with both hands and provide
for a secure stance. The power tool is guided
more secure with both hands.
f Secure the workpiece. A workpiece clamped
with clamping devices or in a vice is held
more secure than by hand.
f Keep your workplace clean. Blends of mate-
rials are particularly dangerous. Dust from
light alloys can burn or explode.
f Always wait until the machine has come to
a complete stop before placing it down. The
tool insert can jam and lead to loss of control
over the power tool.
f Never use the machine with a damaged ca-
ble. Do not touch the damaged cable and
pull the mains plug when the cable is dam-
aged while working. Damaged cables in-
crease the risk of an electric shock.

when the tool is switched off or when it is run-
ning but not actually doing the job. This may sig-
nificantly reduce the exposure level over the to-
tal working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect
the operator from the effects of vibration such
as: maintain the tool and the accessories, keep
the hands warm, organisation of work patterns.

– Use dust extraction whenever possible.
– Provide for good ventilation of the work-
ing place.
– It is recommended to wear a P2 filter-
class respirator.
Observe the relevant regulations in your
country for the materials to be worked.
Mounting the Extraction Adapter
The extraction adapter 27 can be mounted with
the hose connection to the front or to the rear.
When the guide bushing adapter 44 is mounted,
it is possible that the guide bushing adapter
must be turned by 180° so that the extraction
adapter 27 does not touch the release lever 46.
When mounting with the hose connection in
front, the chip shield 6 must be removed first.
Fasten the extraction adapter 27 with the
2 knurled screws 28 to the base plate 12.
Connecting the Dust Extraction
Insert an extraction hose (Ø 35 mm) 26 (acces-
sory) into the mounted extraction adapter. Con-
nect the extraction hose 26 to a vacuum cleaner
The machine can be plugged directly into the re-
ceptacle of a Bosch all-purpose vacuum cleaner
with remote starting control. The vacuum clean-
er starts automatically when the machine is
switched on.
The vacuum cleaner must be suitable for the ma-
terial being worked.
When vacuuming dry dust that is especially det-
rimental to health or carcinogenic, use a special
vacuum cleaner.

Switching On and Off
Adjust the depth-of-cut before switching on or
off; see Section “Adjusting the Depth-of-cut”.
To start the machine, press the On/Off switch
24 and keep it pressed.
To lock the pressed On/Off switch 24, press the
lock-on button 2.
To switch off the machine, release the On/Off
switch 24 or when it is locked with the lock-on
button 2, briefly press the On/Off switch 24 and
then release it.
Constant Electronic Control
Constant electronic control holds the speed
constant at no-load and under load, and ensures
uniform working performance.
Soft Starting
The electronic soft starting feature limits the
torque upon switching on and increases the
working life of the motor.
Adjusting the Depth-of-cut
(see figure D)
f The adjustment of the depth-of-cut may on-
ly be carried out when the router is
switched off.
For coarse adjustment of the depth-of-cut, pro-
ceed as follows:
– Place the machine with the router bit mount-
ed on the workpiece to be machined.
– Set the fine-adjustment path to the centre
position with the adjustment knob 20. For
this, turn the adjustment knob 20 until the
marks 21 match as shown in the figure. After-
wards, set the scale 19 to “0”.
– Set the step buffer 10 to the lowest position;
the step buffer engages noticeably.
– Loosen the wing bolt for the depth stop 14
so that the depth stop 15 can be moved free-
– Push the release lever 22 downward and
slowly lower the plunge router until the rout-
er bit 7 touches the surface of the workpiece.
Let go of the release lever 22 again to lock
this plunging depth.
– Push the depth stop 15 downward until it
rests on the step buffer 10. Set the slide with
the index mark 16 to the “0” position on the
scale for the depth-of-cut adjustment 18.
– Set the depth stop 15 to the required depth-
of-cut and tighten the wing bolt for the depth
stop 14. Pay attention not to misadjust the
slide with the index mark 16 again.
– Push the release lever 22 and guide the
plunge router to the uppermost position.
For deep cuts, it is recommended to carry out
several cuts, each with little material removal.
By using the step buffer 10, the cutting process
can be divided into several steps. For this, ad-
just the desired depth-of-cut with the lowest
step of the step buffer and select the higher
steps first for the initial cuts. The clearance of
the steps can be changed by screwing the ad-
justing screws 11 further in or out.
After a trial cut, the depth-of-cut can be set ex-
actly to the desired measure by turning the ad-
justment knob 20; turn in clockwise direction to
increase the cutting depth and in anticlockwise
direction to decrease the cutting depth. The
scale 19 can be used for guidance. One full turn
corresponds with a setting range of 2.0 mm; a
graduation mark on the top edge of the scale 19
corresponds with a 0.1 mm change of the set-
ting range. The maximum setting range is
± 8 mm.
Example: The desired depth-of-cut is to be
10.0 mm; the trial cut resulted in a cutting depth
of 9.6 mm.
– Lift up the router and place e. g. a piece of
scrap wood under the guide plate 9 so that
the router bit 7 cannot touch the workpiece
when lowering it. Push the release lever 22
down and slowly lower the plunge router un-
til the depth stop 15 faces on the step buffer
– Turn the scale 19 to “0” and loosen wing bolt

– Turn the adjustment knob 20 by 0.4 mm/4
graduation marks (difference from set to ac-
tual value) in clockwise direction and tighten
the wing bolt 14.
– Check the selected depth-of-cut by carrying
out another trial cut.
After adjusting the depth-of-cut, do not change
the position of the slide 16 on the depth stop 15
any more, so that the actual cutting depth can
be read on the scale 18.
Working Advice
f Protect router bits against shock and im-
Direction of Feed and Routing Process
(see figure E)
f The routing process must always be carried
out against the rotation direction of the
router bit 7 (up-cutting motion). When rout-
ing in the direction with the rotation of the
router (down-cutting), the machine can
break loose, eliminating control by the user.
– Adjust the required depth-of-cut; see Section
“Adjusting the Depth-of-cut”.
– Place the machine with the router bit mount-
ed on the workpiece to be machined and
switch the power tool on.
– Push the release lever 22 down and slowly
lower the plunge router until the adjusted
depth-of-cut is reached. Let go of the release
lever 22 again to lock this cutting depth.
– Carry out the routing process applying uni-
form feed.
– After finishing the cutting process, guide the
plunge router upward again to the upper-
most position.
– Switch the power tool off.
Routing with Auxiliary Guide (see figure F)
For working large workpieces, e. g. when rout-
ing grooves, a board or wood strip can be fas-
tened to the workpiece as an auxiliary guide
alongside which the router can be guided. Guide
the router with the flattened side of the guide
plate along the auxiliary guide.
Shaping or Molding Applications
For shaping or molding applications without the
use of a parallel guide, the router bit must be
equipped with a pilot or a ball bearing.
– Guide the switched on power tool from the
side toward the workpiece until the pilot or
the ball bearing of the router bit faces
against the workpiece edge to be machined.
– Guide the power tool alongside the work-
piece edge with both hands, paying attention
that the router is positioned rectangular. Too
much pressure can damage the edge of the
Routing with Parallel Guide (see figure G)
Slide the parallel guide 29 with the guide rods
30 into the base plate 12 and tighten as required
with the wing bolts 5. Additionally, the parallel
guide can be adjusted lengthwise with the wing
bolts 31 and 32.
Fine adjustment of the length is possible with
the fine-adjustment knob 33 after loosening
both wing bolts 31. One revolution corresponds
with a setting range of 2.0 mm. One graduation
mark on the fine-adjustment knob 33 changes
the setting range by 0.1 mm.
The effective contact surface of the parallel
guide can be adjusted with the edge guide 34.
Guide the switched on power tool with uniform
feed and lateral pressure on the parallel guide
alongside the workpiece edge.
When routing with the parallel guide 29, the
dust/chip extraction should take place via the
special extraction adapter for the parallel guide
35. The extraction adapter 27 can remain
Routing with the Router Compass
(see figure H)
The router compass/guide-rail adapter 36 can
be used for circular routing jobs. Mount the
router compass as shown in the figure.
Screw the centring screw 41 into the thread on
the router compass. Insert the point of the cen-
tring screw into the centre of the circular arc to
be routed, paying attention that point of the
screw engages into the workpiece surface. Page 26 Tuesday, September 2, 2008 8:46 AM
Page: 26
English | 27
Bosch Power Tools 1 609 929 N93 | (2.9.08)
Coarsely adjust the required radius by moving
the router compass and tighten the wing bolts
38 and 39.
The length can be fine adjusted with the fine-ad-
justment knob 40 after loosening the wing bolt
39. One revolution corresponds with a setting
range of 2.0 mm. One graduation mark on the
fine-adjustment knob 40 changes the setting
range by 0.1 mm.
Guide the switched on power tool over the
workpiece with the right handle 1 and the router
compass handle 37.
Routing with Guide Rail (see figure I)
Straight routing cuts can be carried out with
help of the guide rail 43.
The base spacer 42 must be mounted in order to
compensate the height difference.
Mount the router compass/guide-rail adapter 36
as shown in the figure.
Fasten the guide rail 43 to the workpiece with
suitable clamping devices, e. g. screw clamps.
Place the machine with the guide-rail adapter 36
mounted onto the guide rail.
Routing with Guide Bushing (see figures K–N)
The guide bushing 47 enables template and pat-
tern routing on workpieces.
In order to use the guide bushing 47, the guide
bushing adapter 44 must be inserted into the
guide plate 9 first.
Place the guide bushing adapter 44 from above
onto the guide plate 9 and tighten it firmly with
the 2 fastening screws 45. Pay attention that
the release lever for the guide bushing adapter
46 is freely movable.
Choose a suitable guide bushing, depending on
the thickness of the template or the pattern. Be-
cause of the projecting height of the guide bush-
ing, the template must have a minimum thick-
ness of 8 mm.
Actuate the release lever 46 and insert the guide
bushing 47 from below into the guide bushing
adapter 44. Ensure that the encoding keys clear-
ly engage in the grooves of the guide bushing.
f Select a router bit with a diameter smaller
than the interior diameter of the guide
To ensure that the distance from router bit cen-
tre and guide bushing edge is uniform, the guide
bushing and the guide plate can be adjusted to
each other, if required.
– Push the release lever 22 down and guide the
router to the stop in the direction of the base
plate 12. Let go of the release lever 22 again,
in order to lock this plunging depth.
– Unscrew the countersunk head screws 49.
Screw the pan head screws 48 into the holes
intended for this purpose in such a manner
that the guide plate 9 can be moved freely.
– Insert the centring pin 50 into the tool holder
as shown in the figure. Hand-tighten the
tightening nut so that the centring pin can
still be moved freely.
– Align the centring pin 50 and the guide bush-
ing 47 to each other by slightly moving the
guide plate 9.
– Tighten the pan head screws 48.
– Remove the centring pin 50 from the tool
– Push the release lever 22 and guide the
plunge router to the uppermost position.
For routing with the guide bushing 47 proceed
as follows:
– Guide the switched on power tool with the
guide bushing toward the template.
– Push the release lever 22 down and slowly
lower the plunge router until the adjusted
depth-of-cut is reached. Let go of the release
lever 22 again to lock this cutting depth.
– Guide the switched on power tool with the
protruding guide bushing alongside the tem-
plate applying lateral pressure.
