Thicker 8mm shanks help to reduce chatter for tighter fitting dovetails and box joints.

Overview

This router bit set features 8mm shanks, which are 25% larger than 1/4" bits. The extra mass in the shank helps to reduce chatter. Ideal for joining case goods, the set includes 1/2" x 14° and 8° dovetail bits, a 5/16" straight bit, and 1/2" to 8mm collet adapter. The straight bit can be used for box joints, or for cutting grooves and dados. Fits all existing Rockler dovetail jigs.

    I used the 14 degree 8mm...

    Calvin B from West Simsbury, CT Posted November 18, 2010
    I used the 14 degree 8mm dovetail bit 29961 in this kit to compliment my Rockler dovetail jig 23777. It wasn't until the bit dulled after many, many uses on solid oak drawers I've built for all of my home projects that I went back to another brand at 1/4" thinking it should work the same. It didn't. I realized how truly magnificent the extra width of the shank is. There was a major difference in chatter and the Rockler bit's ability to cut smooth, perfect dovetails every time. I put the other brand 1/4" bit back in its case and ordered three more Rockler bits. I'll never go back.

    The bit cut fine and with perfect results. Unfortunately the bit tends to stick in the collet spacer. This happened twice and on the second time the bit was damaged in removing it from the collet. Otherwise it is great!
