Good Clean up Tool

By

Verified Buyer


This was an excellent cleanup tool for those where the depth and height may be a bit off from using your binding bit/bearing purchased from Stewmac.com, especially around top back of a guitar where the neck and body meet.

The curve is steeper here, so instead of using a wedge while binding, just use this bit in your Dremel tool to tweak the channel a bit until the binding fits flush. It cuts a nice neat channel, although you do have get used to it as likes to wander a bit if you go too fast. If you go slow you will get a good looking clean channel every time

Worked Perfect

Used this to route the binding channel on the headstock of my acoustic guitar project. Yes, there is a small mark left behind on the wood from the guide, but that did come out quite easily when sanding the binding flush with the headstock.

Router Bit Works Fine

This bit works as advertised providing extreme care is used on end grain. A spiral cutter would work much better.

Obvious ring

By

Verified Buyer


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

By

Verified Buyer


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

By

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.

a dynamite mini router bit.

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.
