I am building a CNC router machine and want to use the Bosch Colt router as the router. Please could you give me the dimensions without the base which I won’t be using. The model I will be using is PR20EVS.

You could buy it… Then at least you can measure it while you build and you have it when your Cnc is completed.
Good luck…

One other option, is to not use the base. Make a curved base to hold the router on the side and use two hose clamps to hold the router firm, or make a matching round curved support and cut a slot so you can use a bolt to compress the wood and hold the router in place. Here’s a photo of the way my router moter is held in place on my gunstock duplicator. It’s made with an aluminum support that’s bored to take most router motors and it came with a sleeve to hold the few routers that are slightly smaller. I use a 2 1/2” hp router because the extra power helps remove a lot of wood in a hurry.

Why can’t you buy it now and have it on hand?

Thanks all. I went to HD and took measurements. Due to monetary concerns, I have to plan all my purchases carefully. If I buy the router now, I won’t have enough money to build the rest of it. The router is the last item I will need, so I need just the dimensions for now to build the mount.

Have your say...
