All of our dovetails are specially designed with high radial and axial relief angles to give you extra clean, sharp edges. You'll find many applications for these bits. Make creative and decorative glue joints for drawers and jewelry boxes, Shaker furniture and shadow boxes, sliding dovetail joints for table and leg extensions, or sliding drawer and shelf runners and dividers. Smaller degree bits can be used for stair tread stringer mortising or shelf supports. Larger diameter bits will produce unique finger pulls. All bits two flute, carbide tipped. USA
Helpful Hint: For best results when cutting dovetails and to minimize chipping and tearout, first cut the area with a straight bit to renove most waste. then cut with dovetail bit.
