Default Router bit problem.

I have three Whiteside router bits that have chips on the end. They are solid carbide up cut bits. The wood I have been cutting is all hardwood and Russian birch grade 3/B.

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Call Whiteside about this...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

They might offer to take them back and resharpen to get the chips out.

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.

I thought it might be something I was doing. I wish I could find out what causing the chip out so I can fix it. I will call WS and see what they say.

resonation/vibration/run out can do it..
something that you see w/ cheapo bits or a bearing getting ready to give it up...
check for shaft play and/or run out...

since solid carbide bits can be fragile/brittle ''chatter'' can be detrimental...
bcfunburst and sreilly like this.
