Whether you want to put a small smooth attractive edge on your next project or make a drop leaf table, you'll find plenty of uses for these hard workers!
All of our roundovers easily convert to beading bits (with an extra step), simply by changing to a smaller bearing using our Beading Conversion Kit. Put a special decorative touch on stair treads, shelves, chair rails, drawer fronts, moldings, and table edges. Flip your stock over and make a second pass to produce beautiful half round edges. Try adjusting your cutting depth so that you expose the upper straight cutting edge and add an extra decorative touch to shelves, table edges and moldings.
Roundover bits from 1/16" to 1" radius come with a standard 1/2" bearing but can be converted to a beading bit by changing to a smaller 3/8" bearing. All bits two flute, carbide tipped, with bearing guides. USA

Router Safety Tips:
- Always wear eye and ear protection.
- Always use properly sharpened bits.
- 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. Minimum 1" of shank needs to be in collet.
- Tighten bit 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 or router 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).
