Cuts strong, fast miter joints for drawer boxes and cabinet cases.

Overview

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.

What a great bit!

Bryan Posted November 13, 2013
I’m building a hope chest and needed a good and fast way to join the 45 degree miter sides together. So I bought this bit to do that job. It took me a little time to set up it up, but boy I love this bit. It makes real nice tight 90 degree joints and you almost don’t need any glue.

I use the 45 lock miter bit to give me face grain on all four sides of the Stickley style funiture legs I make. Several comments have been made on how sensitive the set up is on this bit. I have found that by the use of a digital height guage, I can set the bit height spot on. I measure the thickness of the stock and devide by half and add .22 in. I derived the .22 in. by measuring from the top of the juncture where the 45 cutting surface meets the top cutter arm and the bottom juncture where the bit is 45 deg. again. On my bit this measured out at .44. I take half the stock meassurement, add .22 in. and set my digital height gage to that measurement. I raise the bit untill the gage contacts the juncture of the top 45 cutter where it meets the top cutter arm and I'm spot on. I usually make at least three passes to sneak up on the final edge and minimise chipping and tearout. I have had great results with the bit. I almost never need to test cut anymore

This is a fantastic bit. Its ten times easier than the same method with a tablesaw, or just butting two miters together. Everyone who rated this bit lower than 5 for difficulty or danger has forgotten that all tools are dangerous and this is the easiest way to make the strongest miter joint possible without dowels or biscuits. If only the users of this tool were as fantastic as the bit itself.
