I built a few jewelry boxes for Christmas and got ahead of myself. Sanded and stained... It was then I remembered, or rather forgot, to cut the top off. This little Gem saved my Christmas and I love that it was small enough to save the grain I was working with. Maple and Cedar.
Perfect. Just the bit I've been looking for to cut slot in bases for weaving baskets. Sharp, no vibration. At first I thought I might be better off with a 1/2" shank, but once I saw the price I decided to try a 1/4" shank. Works great.
Doesn't hold up well in maple. A lot of smoke and pitch deposited on cutter after a few passes. This may be fine for pine or other soft woods but it didn't do well for me using maple. On one other note not related to the product, the shipping process is too drawn out. Why can't Rockler ship direct with UPS or USPS instead of using the UPS-USPS hybrid model. The product literally went by my house twice, once each way before it brought by out by the PO.
