Whiteside Locking Drawer Glue Joint Bit
Special Price $42.84 Regular Price $50.40
A key to success when constructing quality drawers is in the quality of the drawer lock bit you use. The Whiteside Drawer Lock Bit is designed to make strong, perfectly fitting joints to secure the drawer front to the sides. The first step is to mill the drawer front with the inside face down flat on the work table. Second, mill the sides of the drawer with the inside face placed vertical to the bit and against the fence while staying perpendicular to the table.
To set it up you simply center the profile on the edge of your material, than rout one face up and the other face down. It's helpful to plan out your material ahead of time.
This cutter is heavy duty, 1-1/2" in diameter with a 1/2" shank. Use it in a router table with a fence capable of being setup with an offset, like a jointer. As long as your fence has removable sub-fences, shim out the out-feed approximately 1/32nd of an inch.
