Rockler Cove Horizontal Raised Panel Router Bits - 1/2" Shank

Horizontal panel raising bits cut more smoothly than vertical bits, and allow you to raise curved panels.

Provided your router has enough horsepower, horizontal panel raising bits offer an exceptionally smooth shearing cut, and virtually eliminate fuzzing on the end grain of your panels. In addition, they allow you to raise panels with curving profiles, such as for arched doors or cathedral style doors. These raised panel bits are manufactured to Rockler's exacting standards, and include guide bearings to ensure proper relief to fit into the grooves of your rail and stile doors.

Matches what I needed
The profile of this bit was an exact match to the existing raised panel doors I needed to match. Bit worked great. I have a PC 690 router and ( single speed 250000 rpm) so I had to get a speed adjuster and once I had the correct setting it cut through red oak easily without any burning.

I needed a 1 1/4 inch...
I needed a 1 1/4 inch radius cutter to make a cove molding for some Victorian porch posts I am making. This works great for the job.

I am making raised panel doors...
I am making raised panel doors for the first time and needed router bits. I ordered the raised panel bit and the round stile & rail bit set. Haven't completed the doors yet but did try these bits on test pieces. They all cut clean and true. Hope my real doors fit like the test. Also, the service was great, actually outstanding. I had my bits three days after ordering.

Not A Great Bit
Don't stay sharp even though it's carbide. Almost too dull to use after cut 4 small oak panels. Did a terrible job on the end grain even though a only took small bites with each pass.

Built a cell phone holder to act as a speaker unit. It funnels out the sound from the small cell phone speaker. Took off the bearing, pre-drilled a hole in the center of the bowl shape I was routing out. And then plunged the bit into the hole, slowly, creating a small speaker bowl to reflect the sound outward. You can find plans for this. Neat little item to build for friends.

what size router does the raised panel cutter require?
two thumbs on Nov 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Its not size that matters :-) You will need a variable speed router and a router table. I have a Porter Cable 2 1/4 HP router mounted to my router table. Larger diameter bits require that you slow down the router thus the variable speed part. I leave my router in the table (I have three other routers) and adjust the speed to accommodate the bit I am using. You can find more information on speed versus bit size on the Rockler site and searching for Router Bit Speed. http://www.rockler.com/how-to/router-bit-speed/

Do not attempt to rout raised panels without a table as that is a food way to loose fingers.

I hope that helps
