Whiteside Raised Panel Router Bit with Back Cutter
Cut your cutting time in half. This new style allows you to make your backside cut at the same time you are milling the front of a raised panel. This heavy duty Whiteside bit is beefy enough (and sharp enough) to make a clean cut through oak, maple or whatever you throw at it. By reducing your number of runs through your router you reduce your chance of mistakes while guaranteeing a standard tongue thickness around your panel.
This type of raised panel bit is typically used for panels at least ¾” thick. Bit diameter 3-1/4” allows for 1-3/8” reveal. A variable speed router of at least 3HP is recommended along with the slowest possible speed setting of approximately 10,000 RPM. Best results can be achieved with a minimum of two passes, the last being a light finishing pass for optimum finish.
Whiteside Router Bits are one of the few brands still made in the U.S.A. Their attention to quality of materials and expert brazing and grinding technologies has made them a furniture industry favorite since the early 70's.
Available in bevel, ogee and cove profiles.
