Instructions
Our clean-cutting carbide-tipped cutter has a 1/4" shank to fit your router, an Allen screw with wrench for installing a depth-of-cut bearing, and a special extension bushing for "stairstep" ledges.

Money-saving sets add depth-of-cut bearings sized specifically for binding routing jobs, and for flush-trimming guitar tops and backs. Instructions included. Router bit and bearings are also available separately.

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.

A Few Problems

Bought the basic set and found it didn't have the bearing needed for the .080 standard wood binding they sell. Also, first pass around the guitar left an oil stain from the bearing. I would run this on a bunch of scrap first.

Good set, but be aware that purfling ledges can only be cut to a maximum .210".

Great Set!

I used the complete bit set on my first kit build which is an HD-28. The instructions are so well laid out that finding the right bearing is super easy. Glad I bought this for sure.

bit and bearing kit

Very useful and precise, superb cutting. I am using a manual cutter but now am learning the router cutting. A Bosch router and the Stewmac bit kit is an ideal solution.

Binding Cutters

Took a while to figure out and set up properly, but once correct size bearings were chosen and the laminate trimmer properly setup, everything worked like a charm.

Time-saving gem

We're now using this product in our production workshop and it is worth its weight in gold! We use it in a conventional router table and it is really quick and easy to cut accurate housings for binding the edges of our ukeleles.
