Binding Router Bit Set

About This Item

Rout clean, precise ledges for practically any binding combination.

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.

Works great but...

By

Verified Buyer


These work great, but you would think for the price all these small parts would come with at least a small plastic box to keep them in. Nope, just a tiny ziplock bag.

No quite as the picture suggests

By

Verified Buyer


Bearing set arrived in UK in good time but not quite as the picture suggests. 2 of the bearings have been sleeved (need to wait and see how they work out).

A word of warning to UK customers an additional £28 charged by UK Post Office for VAT and handling.

Worked beautifully!

By

Verified Buyer


This bit and attachments worked beautifully for routing for bindings for the dreadnought kit! I don't know how I would have done it without this bit and bearings!

Nice

Pretty much exactly what they say they are. I kinda miss the old three bladed bit though.

Must have for binding

Verified Buyer


I used these to actually remove binding and release the badly fracture top from a Seagull C6. Just what I needed.

The tool I needed to successfully complete a restoration job

While it will be used infrequently, it's the ideal tool, when you need it.

Good Router Bit

By

Verified Buyer


Bought to use with Router Jig on a dreadnought for binding/purfling channels. Top is torrefied spruce, which chips out easily, but this router did a beautiful job on the purfling chanel. No chip-out and minimal stringing.
The only caveat is that the smallest bearing in this set just barely cuts the purfling chanel deep enough for a standard herring bone purfling plus .060 thick binding.
But otherwise, the bearing set is complete and the router bit has a long shank for use in the Router Jig.
Overall a good value for a high quality set.
