I used to work in a shop that made Formica counter tops and cabinets and this is the same bit they used when they wanted beveled edges instead of square. The benefit of beveled edges is that they do not snag on clothing, towels or other items.Make sure that there as little Formica overlap as possible. With Formica you need a bit with a bearing because a plain shaft will heat up enough to discolor the Formica. If you use this bit on Formica or any other plastic substance make sure that you keep the bearing well oiled or it will seize up quickly because the material will work it's way inside where it will melt if the bearing gets to hot. WD40 or any light machine oil is great for this but apply liberally every 3 to 4 feet. I'm sure letting th bearing cool would help too but in an industrial setting we didn't have time for that. Because if tight spaces we could not use a standard router. I wish I could have found a bit with and 1/8th inch shaft so I could have used my Dremel tool.but...
In a world of lumber/hardware warehouses that carry ONLY the most common router bit designs, ordering this was a breath of fresh air. Not everything needs to be rounded over -- there is a call for a straight, sharp 45-degree chamfer bit.
I purchased this particular bit because I needed a 45-degree chamfer bit and this was one was reasonably priced. I don't need this for professional purposes and so I don't need a high-dollar bit that more than likely will not stay sharp any longer than this one.
Very sturdy, very sharp, and it does exactly what I need it to do!
I was duplicating some kitchen cabinet drawers fronts made of solid maple when I remodeled the kitchen. The manufacturer of the cabinets went out of business, so since I only needed a couple drawer fronts, I decided to make my own. This 45 degree bit was perfect for matching the chamfered edges on the existing doors and cabinet fronts. The cost was amazing and the ball bearing kept the bit from bogging down too deeply.
I used this on a Sears router which was mounted in a router table. The combination of ball bearing bit and router table made the chamfering part of my work easy and precise.
