This is about as basic as it gets as I never really used a router much...I ordered a T4 router that uses 1/4" shanks. I mostly use 3/4" stock and see that the largest roundover bit cuts 1/2". How do I use that bit to make a round edge on a piece of wood that is thicker than the bit is deep? Do I make two passes, or is the 1/2" cut all I can do with it. Or, do I use a 1/2" bit then finish with a 1/4" bit to give me the 3/4"?
I wanted the T4 because it is light reasonably priced and got some good reviews here.
thanks for any help
