Customer Questions & Answers

Will this bit trim plywood/OSB and what would be the max thickness plywood I could trim?

Asked by: Rob
Hi, Rob - The DR41102 will trim Plywood and OSB. The carbide cut height on this bit is ½”, this should be enough to use on 7/16” OSB or 15/32” Plywood.

3/8 in. x 1/2 in. Carbide Flush Trimming Router Bit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent For the Price, but Still Clogs Like Other Brand Bits I hoped these Diablo plastic laminate trimming router bits, since they are coated with a supposed 'anti stick' treatment, would run cleaner than the Bosch and Porter cable bits I had previously owned. (I use Diablo circular saw blades and they seem to plow right through sticky green framing lumber without gumming up from sap.) Nope. After trimming the Formica from the edge of a countertop I had just laminated, the Diablo router bit was just as gummed up with accumulated contact cement as any other trimmer bit. You still need to meticulously clean the gunk off these with lacquer thinner after each pass, or they WILL burn your laminate when the guide bearing stops rolling from being clogged. But they did cost a little less than Bosch, even if they are not superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commercial Cabinet Builder I think that this Diablo 3/8 in. X 1/2 in.carbide flush trimming router bit is a great product. I've built and installed cabinets for 20 years , in commercial cabinets there is a lot of Formica use in the process this means glue, apply and routing Formica. I used to think that a longer longer trimming router bit was better but its really not, due that for routing Formica you only use either 1/8 to 1/4 inch bottom portion of the router bit and this is where this router bit comes in place. The longer the bit the more expensive, this router bit price is perfect for me we use a lot of them and I would recommend it to everybody.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Specs on product not great Guide wheel on bit was a bit smaller than cutting tool as opposed to being flush and as a result gouged into surface that was to be flush cut.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Issues with the trim wheel The trim wheel did not cut flush and after a few cuts the trim wheel screw that held it in place would fall off all together or shatter. The same thing happened on both the original bit and the replacement with in 2 days of purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not real pleased with results I was disappointed that this bit did not trim flush - I had to use a file afterwards to get a flush finish. I have used flush bits before to do laminate trimming and did not have to use a file afterwards to get the laminate truly flush. Would not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked just the way you want in to This bit was a substitute for one that broke while I was using it. This bit performed exactly as I expected. You can't ask any more from a tool
