The ball-bearing pilots on these bits make it virtually impossible to cut too deep, eliminating expensive and time-consuming rework. The bearing guide is on the bottom of the shaft, below the blades, which lets you trim face frames flush with cabinet sides, shelf caps flush with shelves, or veneers and laminates flush with the substrate. The cutter can also be used for template work where the template is below the worked material or, alternatively, with a router mounted in a router table where the template is above the worked material. In both cases it is suitable for straight and particularly shaped patterns.
These straight bits are slightly undersized to cut tight-fitting grooves and dadoes for plywood that is thinner than its stated nominal thickness, which applies to most plywood and veneered MDF. Typical straight bits leave an unsightly gap when used for plywood joinery. Use these bits to cut grooves, dadoes and rabbets. Of course, they can also be used for general purpose material removal or any application which requires a flat, finished bottom. The two-flute cutters give a smooth finish with a medium feed rate. Two flutes, 1/4" shank.
