This specific bit I bought with the right size bearing to route for Binding that I'm installing on my bass.

This was a replacement for years-old router bit, not quite as sharp as it once was and getting worn on the shank. As usual, the speed of delivery amazed me. Ordered from Melbourne on Friday, delivered to my doorstep on Monday! Thanks again for impeccable service and product.

Excellent, very sharp, smooth cut. Only negative is it dulls quickly on maple sides and backs. It stills is an essential tool.

Absolutely worth it.

Does the little bit of rake angle make an appreciable difference over a standard straight rabbeting bit? It sure does! I'm really pleased with the results.

No binding and no chipping. This blade helped me get smooth results when flush cutting and routing for binding.

a perfect fit and function

I bought the binding router bit and the .09 offset bearing to fit the .09 plastic binding. I am delighted, it was a perfect fit and left a small amount exposed that I easily took off with the scraper once the glue dried. I had telephoned and spoken with someone who couldn't answer the questions I had about bearing size match to the binding so to be on the safe side I also ordered a .08 bearing offset which wasn't needed. The bearing was easy to change on the bit, everything worked like a dream and I am a happy camper

Works for a limited time

This bit worked well until about the 8th instrument. On my last instrument, about the 11th, using this bit, I had some serious issues with tear out unlike anything I've had, and I always route my channels incrementally, so I don't take all the material off in one pass. Upon inspection of the bit, I noticed that it was completely dulled, with chunks missing from the blades, and now I'm having to replace it. seems a bit expensive for something you have to replace regularly.

Router bits & bearings work great!

Everything works as advertised, bits are sharp and neatly cut the work, even with someone who's new to using a hand held router (Bosch Colt). Bearing diameters are precise. After flush cutting, make sure to do your climb cuts first! Build on....!

I built my own binding machine using an old drill press stand for the column. It ain't pretty but thanks to the Stewmac Binding Router Bit and bearing, it worked great!
