Instructions
Our clean-cutting carbide-tipped cutter has a 1/4" shank to fit your router, an Allen screw with wrench for installing a depth-of-cut bearing, and a special extension bushing for "stairstep" ledges.

Money-saving sets add depth-of-cut bearings sized specifically for binding routing jobs, and for flush-trimming guitar tops and backs. Instructions included. Router bit and bearings are also available separately.

Tip: All our bearings are now sized for exact cutting depth. Remember to allow for swelling of wood fibers from gluing, as well as for the thickness of the glue itself. Glued plastic binding will swell considerably as it absorbs the glue solvents. Wood bindings glued with wood glues that contain water will swell also. To minimize final scraping and sanding, we recommend installing a short length of binding on routed scrap wood first, to test the fit.

A very useful set.

Bought these as it is usually the one size of bearing you don't have that's the one you need. Good quality and delivered promptly.

Good selection

Bought the complete set. Seems to be enough bearings to rout just about any combination of bindings!

Great tool.

Like everything else in life, having the right tool for the right job makes all the difference. This set made binding a pleasure rather than a chore. I can't wait to use it on my next instrument.

First Class service

I ordered the standard binding router bit set. It arrived in good time just like with every other purchase I,ve made in the past. The router bit is great, cuts beautifully, its a great asset in my ukulele making.

Just buy this set!

This set of bearings is just plain brilliant. So many fine variations on the depth of cut. Made my last binding rebate just perfect. I could not be without it now - it is like finding gold in your basement.

time saver

This set takes the calculations out of trying to set the depth of cut for binding slots. Measure thickness of binding, then select the correct bearing. It's that simple.

Top Quality

This cutting bit with bearings really simplified cutting the binding channels on my guitar project. The cuts were very clean and accurate with no tearout. Follow the included instructions and this set will give awesome results!
