Carbide-tipped to stay sharp longer! Special cutters for routing precise binding channels, with a pilot extension for uniform routing depth.

Carbide tips stay sharp longer than steel bits. Small diameter makes them ideal for tight curves.

Binding router bits for Dremel & Foredom tools.
To use our 1/8"-shank bits in your laminate trimmer's 1/4" collet, use our Adapter Collet.

Great bit for tight radii.

By

I normally use the binding bit with the different sized bearings for cutting the binding ledge. I recently build a telecaster which has a very sharp curve near the neck. No way the normal bit would fit that radius but this was the perfect solution. Cuts nice and clean, just go easy!

Good option

All binding channel cutting tools have their limitations and quirks. I have use a few - and when used carefully, and with a light hand, this simple bit has been one of the best. Gives a nice straight, uniform channel with very little set-up time required, and can get into tight spaces. Would be nice to have a few more sizes - how about 0.040" ?

Excellent alternative to a ball bearing bit

If you only need a bit to cut for .060" or .090" these bits work very well. The pilot does not burn or burnish the workpiece if a light touch and constant motion of the tool are employed. Stays sharp as long as any other quality router bit.

Great little bit. Yeah,it leaves a small burn mark, a little sanding takes it out. It's a bit pricey but for what it does, it's worth it. Thanks Stew-Mac, as always, great products!

Tips For Piloted Roter Bit Use

By

Verified Buyer


For those who are struggling with a burned or marred line from the pilot try this. Route before you finish sand the thing! Glue the binding in, then sand the burn or line out. Climb cut with this bit to eliminate tearout. Make shallow climb cuts at first. I've been building for many years and there is a learning curve like no other in the luthier field. These bits are awesome I have been using them for years.

This is a terrible bit!

Do not think of using this. It needs a bearing, not just a shaft guide. Gouged the wood the first time I used it and then it got dull immediately anyway.

Excellent bit but take your time.

This bit seemed expensive to me until I got it and used it. It cuts exceptionally well and you get what you pay for, right? Some people have complained about the pilot leaving a mark. I have found that if you let it cool off for a minute here and there you won't have that problem.
