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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Blade Used this to ream the I.D. of four aluminum wheels for my car. Blade was has sharp when I was done as when I started. February 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent router bit in every way I used this router bit as a replacement for my dull HSS trim bit. Flush trimmed 3/8in thick oak edge banding on an oak plywood desktop. The cut was perfectly flush and splinter-free. Two passes accomplished the task. Great tool. October 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 21, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Malfunctioned during first use The trim router bit malfunctioned during its first use. Apparently debris caught in the bearing causing it to rotate improperly and mar the surface. December 10, 2014
