Simply put, how can I rout into tight places with a round over bit?
I cut a star out of a piece of 1/2 inch wood that is about 4.5 inches across so the points of the star are too tight for a 3/8” round over bit because of the ball bearing. I am routing the inside of the star.
What I wound up doing was finished off the round over process with a couple of files and some sand paper folded to get into the tight corners. Thank goodness the wood was soft and easy to work with.
I really would like to have a router bit to run around the inside all in one operation, but…
Your advice is appreciated.
Here is a pic of what I am trying to explain.
