Router Bits are 2-flute, carbide-tipped with 1/2" Shank.

The Ogee Foot Molding Bit #8588 cuts an elegantly shaped bracket foot profile for jewelry boxes and small cabinets. Eliminates tedious hand shaping and carving of this traditional foot style. Simply run the needed length on your router table and mitre the corners. 1-1/4" Carbide Height.

The Furniture Maker Bit #8592 cuts the oval shape edges found in classic style furniture in two passes. Two-flute, carbide-tipped with totally enclosed ball bearing guide. Perfect edge for table legs plus chair legs or arms, etc. 15/16" Large Diameter, 1-1/4" Carbide Height.

The Mitered Door Frame Bit #8782 puts a decorative profile on the box. It is also great for mirror and picture frames, crown moldings, chair rails and other trim. Combine with any raised panel router bit to create highly decorative raised panel doors that until now have only been available through high end cabinet shops. 1-1/2" Large Diameter. 2-11/16" Carbide Height.

Pressure-sensitive adhesive backed Felt Liner is an easy way to line small drawers in jewelry or keepsake boxes. It can also be applied to the bottom of lamps, boxes, carvings or coasters, anywhere you need to cushion or protect surfaces. Cuts easily to fit your needs. Sheet is 12" x 36" and 1/16" thick with peel and stick backing.

The Merle Multi-Corner Clamp features quick release corners and pivoting, self-adjusting jaws that align to any angle, even circles! Clamp virtually any size, shape, or project securely! Perfect for circles and ovals and polygonal shapes with almost no capacity limit. Steel banding provides greater clamping pressure than fabric strap clamps.

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).
