Rockler Chamfer Reversible Rail & Stile Router Bit – 1-5/8″ Dia x 15/16″ H x 1/2″ Shank


For those who make cabinet doors only occasionally, this cutter provides an affordable, space-saving solution to routing cope and stick joints. One bit cuts both rail and stile profiles; just remove the cutters and rearrange them to go from coping rail ends to routing grooves in the stiles. Because the bit is bearing-guided, you can also rout arched rails without a template or fence. Available in Chamfer, Ogee and Classical styles (27190, 23422 and 27602, respectively). 1-5/8″ diameter x 15/16″ cutter height x 1/2″ shank. 5/8″ bearing. Groove is 3/8″D x 1/4″H. Instructions for Routing:

To cut the groove and profile on the insides of the rails and stiles, run stock face down on table. Stack the bit (starting from the shank end) as follows: profile cutter, straight cutter, then bearing.
To cope the ends of the rails, run stock face up on table. Stack the bit (starting from the shank end) as follows: straight cutter, bearing, then profile cutter.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: Do not invert any of the cutters! Be sure the carbide is facing the right direction for the rotation of the router.
List Price: $ 69.99

    I use a Forstner Bit to drill a few holes into a log to make a candle
    holder that may be used in your fireplace . I use “Tea Light” candles
    because they have a Aluminum cup . Just find a nice looking log in your
    woodpile and make sure the log will not roll over . Makes nice folk art
    gifts . :)

    . . . . . When drilling holes for candles be sure to use a bit 1/4 inch
    larger than your candle for easy retrieval and to provide airspace . :)
