Our Roman Ogee Plunge Bit can be used for any fluting application, and even for routing sign text, but it is perhaps most often used to create a panel door effect for painted MDF and solid wood. Roman Ogee in essence, the profile's radiused bottom gives a positive-negative effect to the cut shape of successive passes. It is also a great option for creating edge moldings. Twin-flute cutters.
Precisely machined for square, straight-sided cuts, Rockler Straight Bits are the perfect candidates for dadoes, grooves and mortises of all sizes. All feature sturdy 1/2" shanks, which reduce vibration and chatter for a smoother cut. This in turn translates to tighter joints and stronger joinery. Two carbide flutes are precision ground to an extremely sharp edge, and ensure a long cutting life with minimal sharpening.
A light, ergonomic compact router with variable speed control, plus a full-featured plunge base-the ultimate handheld powerhouse! Smooth-sliding plunge base has rubber handles, a five-step turret stop, and sliding depth-rod with micro-rod for fine adjustments. LED lighting in base with clear sub-bases for optimum visibility. Powerful 1-1/4 hp motor is perfect for trimming laminate, cutting flutes, edge profiling and even mortising. All-metal motor can is designed for durability, and motor features soft-start and electronic speed control to maintain speed under load. Intuitive depth adjustment ring, quick-release tabs and adjustable clamp make adjustments a snap. 1/4" collet is extra-long for better contact with the bit, and the spindle lock features a large button and 12 detentes for easy bit changes.
Vertical panel raising bits concentrate more of their weight toward the center of the bit, reducing strain on the motor, and allowing you to spin the bit at higher RPMs. This means you can raise panels with an ordinary 2 HP router mounted in a router table. Precision machining paired with a sturdy 1/2" shank ensure smooth, chatter-free cuts. Note: vertical panel raising bits cannot be used for cathedral-style or arched doors.
