Overview

The interlocking fingers of our Lock Miter Router Bit provide a strong mechanical locking action that makes it much easier to clamp. There is no tendency for the joint to slide out of alignment under clamping pressure, and the wedged tenons tighten up nicely for a strong corner joint. The increased long grain gluing surface also helps to strengthen the joint over a basic rabbet or butt joint. 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.

Good Product

Woodie Posted December 22, 2014
I've had the large and small bits for quite some time. Both give good clean cuts. On slightly bowed boards, you can draw the boards flat when joining. I've used the small bit on 3/4" stock but not 1/2" stock. I don't see why the smaller can't be used on 1/2" and I plan on using it in the future on some draws to be made of 1/2" stock.

Bought the cutter to use on 1/2 " wood but it is designed for 3/4

Allen Posted September 4, 2014
It cuts fine but is not very useable for 1/2 wood because of the size of the locking feature. I ordered a cutter off of EBay specifically designed for 1/2 wood which worked very well. Good cutter but more info in the description would have helped.

can not seem to make this work

I watched the videos, ordered the bit and the setup block set them up which seems to be correct but no matter how many times I have tried it I cannot get it to work and I am sure I must be doing something wrong. I do get it close but not exact.
