Crisp with zero tear out
I used this bit to cut 40-1 1/4 x 1 1/4 x 1/2” mortises in Red Oak. Last one was as crisp as the first. Flat bottom and no tear out.

Sharp so be careful.
So sharp that I cut my finger when I accidently brushed it while adjusting the dept of cut. Great bit for making my box joints have experienced no tear out so far.

I need the up-spiral router bit for the SOS Hinge Template I purchased. I am installing four #204 SOS hidden hinges on the lid of a Footlocker I am building as a HS graduation present for my youngest daughter. (Three years ago I built a similar footlocker for my oldest daughter's graduation. It had a double-wrap piano hinge that Rockler no longer carries. But I want to try something new anyway!)

Past experience using this bit has shown it's use last a long operational time compared to other bits.

Router table box joint jig purchased. Unfortunately, this bit should have been carbide because it didn't last long enough to adjust the set up and cut some material before the bit was too dull to cut. I prefer nice joints to blue smoke.

It was recommended for use with the router box joint jig. I didn't have one and wanted to try one. I bought HSS version to evaluate it and will get carbide if I like its performance.
