  • Reviews
Hide ugly plywood with a finished hardwood edge!

With Katana® Micrograin carbide! Add an attractive and durable edge to your cabinet doors and shelf edges. For use with plywood panels, MDF panels or shelves from 1/2" to 1" thick. Both matched 2 piece sets are two flute carbide tipped. Simply center the male cutter on the stock and make the cut. Next match up the female cutter with the center point of the first cut. Finish by gluing together the two pieces and flush trim the edges, if necessary. The 60° bits feature a tongue & groove for a larger glue surface area and easier alignment of edge banding. The 90° bits also make a horizontal V-groove or double sided chamfer. Recommended for use in a table mounted router. 1/2" shank.

Very nice! (5/5), Mar 16, 2015

By TIM (TUCSON Ar US)

Used this set for edge trimming oak plywood with hardwood. I found that putting the tongue on the plywood worked best as it eliminated chip out going cross grain. The flush trim bit is great as well as it produces shavings instead of sawdust. It's also nice because you don't have to edge joint things, but you do have to take care to keep the workpiece flat and against the fence for best results.
I even used it to create a corner joint using a 1-1/4 x 3/4 hardwood piece with the groove in each end.
Cut oak in one pass without a hint of an issue.
This will be my go to method for edging plywood.
I like freud bits a lot, have a whiteside and a couple of others, but I think the katana's are as good or better, and will be my go-to bit from here on out.

3/8" Bull Nose Bit (5/5), Feb 12, 2014

By Diane Kerr-Clemens (Tucson AZ US)

I use this bit in my router table to cut a profile in the Top Bar of frames used in honey bee colonies. The profile serves as a comb guide, and helps the bees fasten their combs to the top of the frames, and encourages them to build straight combs.
