Also known as core box, reeding or veining bits, you'll find many uses for these bits such as in fluting flat surfaces in mantels, doors, drawers, panels, columns and general decorative trim work. Ideal bit for sign making, toy building, or just adding that beautiful little accent to a fine piece furniture. Make European style drawer front finger pulls. High up-shear angle lifts the chips out. Using an edge guide or in your router table, you can also use these bits to produce cove style edges and joints. All bits two-flute, carbide-tipped (except P13-2001 and P13-2002, which are SINGLE flute).

Router Saftey Tips:
- Always wear eye and ear protection.

- Never use bits that are dull or damaged.
- Shank must be completely inserted into collet and then backed-off approximately 1/16".
- Don't "bottom-out" bit in collet.
- Never partially insert bit into collet. Tighten securely and recheck periodically for possible slippage or "run-out" due to wear.
- Keep collet clean and replace if worn.
- Never start the router with the bit in contact with wood.
- Always feed your work in the proper direction against the bit rotation.
- Don't force feed the bit or overload your router, Feed at a constant moving speed to avoid burning the wood.
- Do not face tool's discharge when operating.
- Always unplug router when changing bits or making adjustments.
- Use a router table and fence whenever possible.
- Make sure your work piece is properly secured and use push blocks, sticks and featherboards whenever possible.
- Keep all your bits, bearings and assemblies clean, lubricated, and securely fastened. To avoid damage, store them properly in a pouch, box or tray.
- The bigger the bit, the lower RPM recommended (see chart).
