Rockler Undersized Straight Router Bits - 1/2" Shank

Slightly undersized to cut tight-fitting grooves and dadoes for plywood that measures less than its stated nominal thickness.

These straight bits are slightly undersized to cut tight-fitting grooves and dadoes for plywood that is thinner than its stated nominal thickness, which applies to most plywood and veneered MDF. Typical straight bits leave an unsightly gap when used for plywood joinery. Use these bits to cut grooves, dadoes and rabbets. Of course, they can also be used for general purpose material removal or any application which requires a flat, finished bottom. The two-flute cutters give a smooth finish with a medium feed rate. Two flutes, 1/2" shank.

Made my first router project easy. Used the 23/32" bit to cut dado and rabbets in 3/4" plywood for built-in bookshelves. Dados fit the plywood perfectly.

the undersized straight shank router bit
It worked perfectly. The undersized panels fit perfectly with just the right amount of snugness. The bit was sharp. It cut without tearing up the veneer.

Tightest Joint Ever
The first time I used this was for some rabbit joints. They couldn't have been any tighter, or I would have had to sand the piece to get it into the rabbit. These are great.

I only used the 23/32" router but with 1/2" shank for one shelf dado but I can say my shelf slid right in nicely and looked good. For multiple dados in a tall end wall bookcase cabinet you need to make a jig to use with your router.

The bit worked great. Nice clean cuts and great fit up on my book cases. The alternative was using a smaller bit and making several passes.

perfect fit
bought 3 bits for 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 plywood. These bits create perfect fits for dados. I wasted tons more time adjusting a guide - now I just make one cut with the router. Totally worth the money.

I build drawers using undersized 1/2 inch birch plywood for the bottoms. This bit is just the right size for this application.

Most every wood type furniture grade plywood I get from Edensaw Woods in Port Townsend, Washington is 23/32nds thickness. A 3/4" straight bit is too wide.

My 3/4 plywood is 0.688 inches. 23/32 is 0.719. What is the actual width of the slot?
Bill G on Sep 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bill, I don’t deal with 100th of a inch often when working with wood as it’s just not done being that those tolerances are not easily achieved. So I would say just use the bit that is 23/32. It may be a little tite so you may have to sand the plywood down a touch on the edges to make it fit. Good luck.
