Whiteside roundover router bit
Whiteside Roundover Router Bit
The Roundover Bit shapes the edge of a workpiece to the desired radius, providing a
softer feel and appearance than that of an ordinary square edge. Typically the profile
produced by a round over bit corresponds to a quarter of a round circle whose radius
defines the size of the bit. By altering the depth of cut, a round over bit can also create
a fillet at the top of the cut. A round over bit is typically guided by a ball bearing.
♦ USE IN A TABLE MOUNTED ROUTER. NOT FOR USE IN A HAND HELD ROUTER!
All bits up to 1" radius use a 3/16" ID x 1/2" OD bearing and can be converted to a beading bit by changing to a 3/16" ID by 3/8" OD bearing.
♦All bits over 1" radius use a 1/4" ID x 3/4" OD bearing and can be converted to a beading bit by changing to a 1/4" ID by 5/8" OD bearing.
♦This bit is recommended for making the seat to leg joint in the Charles Brock plans for building a sculptured rocker.
