With a full 1" of carbide length and four interchangeable bearings, this rabbeting bit is capable of cutting in horizontally at 5/16", 3/8", 7/16" and 1/2" increments, and up to 1" vertically, infinitely adjustable with your router. The carbide is ground to a fine edge to provide the longest possible cutting life, and smooth, burn-free rabbets. It features a rugged 1/2" shank that cuts vibration for the smoothest possible cut. A hex wrench is included for swapping the bearings.
Use this bit to apply a comfortable finger recess around the edges of doors and drawers, useful when you want a clean look without knobs or other hardware. You can also use it to rout finger pull stock that is applied separately, and you can even use it as a decorative edge treatment for table tops and other cabinet components.
Woodworkers who prefer to use their routers mounted in a table will love the Leigh RTJ400. Unlike traditional dovetail jigs, the RTJ400 slides along the top of your router table, encouraging a comfortable upright posture, and eliminating the need to balance your router on the top of a narrow jig. It provides fast, accurate routing of through dovetails, half-blind dovetails and box joints. Like other Leigh jigs, the template for the RTJ400 is precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum. Perfect joint fit is guaranteed and repeatable with the patented Leigh elliptical guide bushing.
