They’re an invaluable addition to your router bit collection!

See the Workbench Magazine Review. "Brass Piloted Bits - Sneaky Smooth" "Bits with metal pilots were around long berfore bearing-guided bits, but you don't see many anymore. That's because the spinning pilots would burn the wood. MLCS revamped the idea with a brass pilot that runs cooler. This small pilot lets you rout into tight spaces and inside corners."
"The small pilot on this roundover bit sneaks right into the corner of a frame to create a smoother transition."
"Verdict: A specialty bit, but priced around $20, they're worth a look."

Excellent Bit for Narrow Spaces/Light Touch Required (4/5), Apr 17, 2019

By michael r mittleman (saint james NY US)

The right bit for specialty jobs. Effective when narrow spaces are present. Quick, light touch is required to avoid burning wood. Practice before use on work piece is highly recommended.

Good bits for inside corner work (5/5), Feb 14, 2013

By Mark Cliath (Helendale CA US)

With the 3 year warranty, the bits are good buys.
I have used them successfully with good results.

They do indeed require a light touch to keep the brass ferrule from eventually coming off and ruining the wood.

I recommend these bits for difficult inside corner work, and with a deft touch, will provide good use.

I had to replace only two of the bits under their generous 3 yr. warranty.

Light touch needed (3/5), Feb 13, 2013

By R.A. Speir (Annandale VA US)

If you are doing the type of intricate routing shown in the picture, then you have no choice but to use a bit like this. However, these are like the old steel guide bits used before manufacturers started mounting ball bearings. As with those bits, if you apply much pressure on the router, the spinning guide will dig in and/or burn the piece badly. A light touch is needed. Best use is when nothing else is available.
