This question is from 1/2 in. x 2 in. Carbide Straight Router Bit

Answer: 
This bit was not designed for such a purpose. It's best to use a ball bearing guide when using a template if possible. I know a 1/2" bit with a pilot point and bushing areas does exist for I have one. I use router bits as they were intended to be utilized. Safety first with such an unpredictable tool and if in doubt - don't!

Answer: 
If you want to use a template, you will need a flush trim bit with bearing or a panel pilot bit.

1/2 in. x 2 in. Carbide Straight Router Bit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and dependable I use this bit primarily for edge jointing on my router table. This bit cuts very smoothly through the hard woods that I use like red oak, white oak, and Brazilian cherry. No complaints so far,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice solid product I needed a router bit to square up a kitchen's worth of maple butcher block counter top. This worked like a champ. Many straight cut bits are two short to handle a two inch depth but this worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I bought this router bit because I needed a longer shank to be able to mortise four risers for my deacon's bench so it was at an appropriate height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these bits!!! I had not used Freud bits before but decided to give these a try. I Am making several chairs out of oak and this bit cuts through it like a hot knife through butter with a very smooth cut.. I bought two at the same time thinking that they wouldn't last very long but after completing one chair the bit doesn't appear to dulled at all.
