Freud always great
I have used Freud bits for years. Off the shelf I think they give the best and longest performance of every bit manufacturer I have used. The smoothest cut you can buy

It does just what it should....
It does just what it should. Never blame the tool for a bad job- if you use it correctly it delivers. Remember to clean all bits occasionally to prevent burning- especially on plywood.

I bought the 3/4 inch to make dados for cabinet shelves. This bit plowed right through the oak plywood and gave a nice smooth cut without a problem! Love this bit!
April 12, 2011
Will buy more from Freud!
Only used this so far on plywood. Cut's as clean as one would expect on this material ( small amounts of tearout and fraying). Will buy more and am looking forward to using it on more appropriate materials. Good blade of excellemy quality!

I chose this product based on the excellent performance and durability of Freud router bits. I have had much better bit life and performance of double flute bits over the spiral bit configuration.

How deep can you plunge with these ? I'm new to wood working and I'm not sure what end of bit relief means. Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To take care of your bits, don't machine more than a 1/4" of stock or depth at a time. When first inserting the bit into the collet, be sure most of the shaft is in the collet. This eliminates vibration and ensures a good hold on the bit. Machine a 1/4", lower the collet and machine another 1/4" again. Be sure to keep wood chips cleaned out, don't pack the bit against them. This will contribute to over heating the bit. Slow and steady and vacuum will give you an accurate profile and mortise/dado. Always a good idea to understand weather to go clock-wise or counter clock-wise in your application. hope this helps.
I have purchased a Rockler router table to use my router as a jointer to true up the edges of some 1" cherry. which bit should I purchase?

ive purchased a rockler router table to basically turn my router into a jointer to true up the edges of some cherry planks for a tabletop. they will end up being approx. 7/8" thick after planning. what router bit should I get for this purpose and also to joint other various thicknesses in the future however probably never more than an inch thick?
