CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Size is deceptive Be carefull if you purchase this bit for mortising hinges. They state that it is 1/2 . The pilot bearing is 5/8. So if you buy a jig or make one like I did you must allow for the difference. I sent an hour making a template and was surprised when the hing did not fit. The routed area was 1/8 smaller than the hing. I had to recreate the template (another hour). . Beware CHECK THE PACKAGING BEFORE BUYING . There are other manufactureres that make the bearing and the cutting bit the same size. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great additon to my mortising kit I bought this bit to replace a high speed steel bit that was included in a Porter Cable mortising jig for hinges. The HSS bit would burn and dull quickly and I'd have to pay to have it sharpened. This solid carbide bit stays razor sharp and produces nice clean mortises. June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does a nice neat cut. this product worked great except the guide bearing didn't work with my hinge mortising guide. So I had to guide it myself. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freud Quality In my opinion Freud makes the best router bits. The cuts are clean and precise. November 10, 2013
