Router Bit: Core Box, 1/4 inch
A Core Box, also called a Round Nose, profile router bit is the perfect shape for cutting the groove to accept a dowel for my Woodhinge.
Its important to use a high quality, well made, router bit when making my wooden hinges. The round profile must be clean and have a perfect radius to properly mate to the dowel. After years of trial and error, I found Whiteside router bits to be the best bits for making my woodhinge, and I recommend them to you.
This American made router bit is made from solid carbide which is precision ground for proper balance, even at high RPMs. Designed with high hook and relief angles for better chip ejection giving them superior edge quality.
Router Bit Geometry:
- 1/4 inch shank
- 1/4 inch cutting diameter
- 1/2 cutting length
- 2 inch overall length
It took a little to get the right height and fence placement. But worked perfect with my homemade dowels
Both the router bit and wood dowel drill kit worked great the first time
Caution when removing the rubber cover off the flutes -- the bit is SHARP! the shape is perfect half-circle.
great results with the bit
Works well. I used it a few times no burning or anything.
