Topic tags/keywords: question

I need to cut a flat bottom channel with 45 degree sides. A chamber bit mounted in a router table should be ideal to do this. I cant find any chamfer bits without a bearing tip. Is there such bearing? Also, can I buy one of these bits and remove the bearing and use it?

Thanks

They have all kinds of bit without bearings. More than any company out there.

Praki,

I stumbled on your post while searching for the router bit I believe you were seeking 9 years ago. While I am sure the project for which you needed a no-bearing chamfering router bit is complete, I thought I would reply anyway after stumbling on the bit you sought. A no-bearing chamfering router bit is called a V Groove router bit. While I am sure the V groove router bits are widely available, here is the Craftsman web site where the V Groove router bits are offered.

”I need to cut a flat bottom channel with 45 degree sides”

Well JBrow, you usually do a pretty good job, But…...
9 year old thread + wrong info = Fail

LOL
Like this, except 45 degree bevel.

jbay,

Yeah, now that I re-read the OP, I am little embarrassed. After 9 years of consideration, I was sure I came up with a good reply. But a FAIL? I did get the angle part right. That should be worth at least D-.

JBrow, I really appreciate the response even though it is 9 years late ;) Quite frankly, I don’t remember why I wanted this bit. Since then, I have moved on to hand tool woodworking.

Praki,

I ran across your 9 year old post when looking doing a little research on V groove router bits. Your post came up on a Google search and it appeared that your question was not answered. I figured I would post what I thought was the answer in case someone was seeking an answer to the question you posted. Interestingly your post has been view over 3700 times.

Unfortunately and as jbay pointed out, I failed to provide the correct answer, but jbay did get it right, as he usually does.

At any rate, I tip my hat to you. Hand tool woodworking is where I think craftsmanship really shines. Being mostly a machine guy, I admire those who make things of wood with hand tools!

Have your say...
