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.

Great Productivity Product

I used these bits in my stationary router table and they worked great. Clean cuts, accurate, and they accepted the bindings perfectly.

Binding Router bit set

This set worked great for me on my first two guitars. I had problem however keeping up with the bearing sizes and dropping the bearings every time I took them out to use. I made myself a carrying case out of an old plastic tool case with some scrap wood and 1/4 inch dowel rod. I use a rubber band to hold them in place when stored. See attached photo.

Binding Router bit better than hand knives.

This router binding bit set is just what I needed. Worked well with my table mounted router. I made a guitar many years ago using hand knives and had put off finishing this one for a number of years because of the dificulty in cutting for the bindings. This router bit was the perfect solution, and the price was right. I'm 66 and didn't have to pull out any more hair using this bit. Thanks!
