Plunge routers cut mortises cleanly and easily, but centering the router over the work can be finicky and time-consuming. This mortising jig takes the effort out of the centering process without sacrificing precision. A pair of bearings on the baseplate straddle the workpiece, which automatically centers the bit on the wood.
Our Chamfer Bits are among the most useful and popular bits in our router bit lineup. Chamfer bits are extremely versatile, since the size of the chamfer can be easily varied by adjusting the depth of cut. For this reason, it can be cost effective to buy a larger chamfer bit, as even a very large bit can cut a tiny chamfer. Each of these bits has been sharpened with 600-800 grit diamond wheels to guarantee absolute razor sharp performance. They are precision-balanced for smooth operation, and feature a baked on anti-stick coating to resist pitch and resin buildup. 1/2" shanks ensure a smooth chatter-free cut. Two flutes.
Top quality router bits that meet the high standards of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. Two flutes, for fast, smooth, accurate trim cuts. Precision ground to close tolerances, easily used for pattern or template cutting.
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.
