Default 60 degree chamfer bit
Report Post Report This Post!

Does anyone make a 60 degree chamfer bit? I bevel both sides of 1" plastic leaving about 1/8" flat in the middle. I made a bit and use it in a milling machine but it is not a good set up even though it does get the job done.
Thanks
Dick

Dick,

Do you want 60° angle from the shank or from the the flat surface of the material you are cutting? A 30° chamfer bit like the Freud 40-206 is measured relative to the shank. If you need the angle in the other plane you may be able to run the material on edge.

It is 60 degrees from the shank. The plastic has irregular shapes and is wide. Good idea though.

Hi Dick

Just one more place to get the bits from

http://pricecutter.com/product.asp?pn=P13-2111
http://pricecutter.com/product.asp?pn=P13-2129
http://pricecutter.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_P13%2D2106

They are a bit high in price (on some of the items) BUT they do have the hard to find router bits .
Like this one ▼
http://pricecutter.com/product.asp?pn=P13-2242

http://pricecutter.com/category.asp?c=243788&c2c=ln

NOTE***NOTE***
If you have a Oak-Park Box Jig take a real hard look at this jig
The BIT is On the Right Hand Side of the slide guide ... looks like Bob & Ricks, almost... hummmm.....

Box Joint Jig w/Push Block
http://pricecutter.com/product.asp_Q...r%3EPush+Block

NOTE****
Any one have this jig ▼ ▼,,????, I sure would like to see a snapshot of the backside of the push block.... thanks.

If you can get by with 64.5° you can use this 99-511:



and replace the bearing with one that is 1-1/8".

Hi Charles,that's a great work around BUT

I could not find a bearing ( 1 1/8" O.D.) that would fit the bit, do you have a part number for the bearing. ? and a list price for it ...

THANKS
Bj

Bj,

Freud item# is 62-148 and list price is $7.60. This bearing is included in our 7 bearing Multi-Rabbet bit sets or can be special ordered from a Freud dealer to get it separately.
