Our beading bits come in a range of sizes to suit many applications. Use the smaller bits to make beaded trim moldings, and the larger bits for bull-nosed edges on thicker stock. A 1/4" beaded molding mitered around doors and drawer fronts adds a subtle and strikingly attractive effect. In bullnosing applications, a beading bit gives you a true half-round profile, without the flat in the middle that a round over bit would leave. It also machines the edge in one pass rather than two. All of these bits feature sturdy 1/2" shanks for extremely smooth, stable routing.
