Tight miter joints are a hallmark of fine woodworking, and this bit will cut them in spades. Once cut, the miters interlock mechanically, and clamping is easy since the parts can't slide around. There is also more gluing area, so the joint is stronger than a straight miter. Machining parts with the Lock Miter Bit is easy—with the bit height set, one part is cut horizontally on the router table, while the corresponding part is cut vertically. The bit is ideal for joining drawer boxes, cabinet parts, and for building 4-sided columns.
To make setting the cutter height easy and fool-proof, use the Rockler Router Bit Set-up Jig (53817, sold separately) to center the bit on your stock.
