That might be a plastic cutting bit but not sure.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

When I had my last shed built, the crew used this in a router to make cuts in 4x8 sheet goods. Drilled a home and used this to cut out window openings. Made a very clean cut.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I found that router bits with only one flute tended to vibrate if cutting anything of any significant thickness. The only thing that I use them for now is trimming laminate, where they work well for me.

I just cant see it. Surely if the bit falls into the material and then gets pushed back out at a rate of 20,000 times a minute, it would shake to pieces?

It's one of two things; possibly it's an acrylic cutter (what Onsrud refer to as an O-cutter) or it's a single flute cutter designed to be used in the eccentric chuck of an overhead pin router. Either way it's designed for fast and slightly rough production cutting

Welcome to the forum Job. That's what I thought too, that it resembled Onsrud's O flute plastic cutting bits.

When you get a minute why not finish filling out your personal profile so we don't have to refer to you as Job and Knock.
