Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JM definitely won't work with palm sized routers..
This item definitely won't work with palm routers. It comes in 1/4 inch shank size but the top of the bit is too large for palm routers. It needs to be much smaller did at the top to fit / give adequate clearance with the router housing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jjb26 Might not fit smaller routers
I have a small Makita compact router i planned to use with this, but it will not fit because the diameter at the top of the cutting surface is too large for the opening in the router bottom plate. It worked great in my large router that has a larger opening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Papa Good tool for the job
Had a very unusual application and this bit worked well. This was the right solution for my project.
The bit seamed to start getting dull and had some tendency to burn, but as stated it was a very unusual application.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZacharyNelson Another flawless Freud product.
It leaves a burn free chamfer without gumming up. Top quality bearing that you can trust. Excellent product.

I used this bit to construct the base of a mission style lamp in quarter sawn oak. It cut easily and left a smooth finish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DesolationRobot Erases wood
Freud bits aren't the cheapest, but they absolutely erase wood. Hardwood, softwood: either feels like it's not even there when the router bit touches it. Highly satisfied with all Freud router bits I've bought.
One note about this one: it won't fit the base plate of many routers. You may have to make a custom temporary base plate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gumball14 Freud is the best!
I have made my routing bit of choice always be Freud... they are sharp, stay sharp, and are of superioir quality all around...you get what you pay for! (I've used other brands that shred with the first use, not so with Freud).
