Binding Router Bit Set

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.
