Obvious ring

Like some others I am not very light handed when it comes to routing. I had sanded my instrument ready for the paint job and routed with this bit for the binding and when I got through I noticed a fairly deep ring and dark burn marks all around the instrument which I had to sand out which was no easy task. It really needs a bearing on the shaft to eliminate this.

Good cut but bad unit

Worked perfectly in my dremel and cut the binding channel thickness as advertised. Unfortunately it was not until halfway through routing that i noticed the guide at the bottom leaving a groove in my body under the channel. Upon inspection i found the shaft slightly bent when rotating in the dremel causing a warp in the spin. Cuts great but QC for these should have better inspection.

This router bit took all the hassle and guess work out of preparation for binding installation. Great product.

Deep marks

I used it for building 3 les paul replica (mahogany and walnut). After sanded the sides smooth, I've made the binding channel on the lowest speed possible. The bit leaves deep marks, sometimes burned in. I won't use it anymore, be careful with that.

I bought this bit to cut new channels, or clean old channels, on gibson style guitars. It works perfectly on fingerboards or bodies for that purpose. The tiny mark left by the pilot tip comes out in finish sanding. Cutting binding channels is a job for a Dremmel sized tool, not an industrial router, so I'd like to see more of these type bits. I'd especially like to see a piloted bit for the "stepped" laminated bindings seen on customs. Especially if one is building or restoring one of those bound headstocks.

Great idea here, but I think it could use a tweak. While the bit does a good job of cutting the channel in very tight turns, it leaves a mark where the pilot guide comes in contact with the side of the instrument. It's even visible (very faintly) in the product photo. If it were possible to modify the bit by adding a free rolling pilot, that would be fantastic.
