Binding Router Bearings

These custom bearings work with our Binding Router Bit for precise control of the depth of cut.

They're available in 19 different sizes (.010"/.25mm increments), so you'll be able to rout precise ledges for practically any binding combinations.

#1298-000 Flush bearing is for trimming glued bindings, and newly assembled guitar tops and backs.

Choose the bearings you need for specific jobs, or see our money-saving Binding Router Bit Set.

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.


Find the right size bearing for your binding:
Measure the bearing diameter with a dial caliper and use
this chart to find the size ledge your bearing will cut.

Binding router cutter and bearings

By
(Customer's Reviews)


For some 40 years I have been struggling to cut first class rebates for bindings and perflings,using a variety of home made gadgets. Many of which I was almighty proud of. When My latest and best overhead arrangement came to grief and had to be remade, on a whim I bought a cutter and a couple of bearings from Stew Mac.Just a couple of bearings which I thought would be sufficient. However having redesigned and rebuilt my overhead arrangement I incorporated the cutter and bearings and it turned out to be magnificent. I then purchased several bearings and then, when I finally got my brain into gear I bought all the rest so that I now have a full set of bearings plus some spares. If I had had the sense at the onset to get the whole set I would have saved quite a bit of cash. My advice is get the whole set now. You wont regret it.

An absolute must have in order to achieve professional looking results on a binding project. The difference in size of each one in the set is marginal, to the naked eye, so you'll want to keep them clearly marked. The quality is excellent and they make an easy task of routing a guitar body for binding. I highly recommend Stew Mac router bearings!
