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

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

90% of 100
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.

Great Bit
I had a cabinet door that I had to modify due to purchasing a new refrigerator. i was worried about the design but the bit I ordered worked great. I installed it in a drill press and adjusted the belts for 3100 RPM. Slid the door into the wheel and wallah, door cut exactly like I wanted it. (took about 4 passes although i probably could have done it in two.) Thanks Rockler for making this bit sharp.

The vertical bit works great if...
The vertical bit works great if your router can't handle a full sized horizontal bit. Great results on walnut, wich is a fairly dense wood. Even on the crossgrain cuts.My only complaint, and this may be a technique thing I haven't gotten right yet, is that it's hard to get the profile to carry out all the way to the corner, if I cut the crossgrain first and then with the grain, the second cut always seemed to flatten out the profile.Use multiple passes too!

Well made, but profile is too deep to match stile and rail bits
I purchased the 2-1/2 x 5/8 bit, hoping to make panels to work with the Rockler Ogee stile and rail bits. The profile on this bit is too deep by 3/32, so that if you have the same top reveal line on the panel as the stiles and rails, the panel will be 3/32 above the plane of the stiles. I'm using 7/8 stile stock and a 3/4 panel, but this would be true of any thickness, and the flat part of the panel finish 3/32 deeper from the surface as does the channel in the stile bit, given the same top reveal. The only solution is to cheat the reveals in opposite directions, and then back cut the panel so that the stiles will ride up on the bottom of the panel Ogee. That sounds great, but then expansion/contraction of the panel will either bind on the stiles (expansion) or leave the panel loose (contraction).

Can I use a back cutter with this bit, don't want as large of profile as with larger bit?
JnJcrafts on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not completely sure but I don't believe you can.
I am trying to copy 100yr old base board. Do you think this will work? The profile is very close.
