Well I thought I was being a little to optimistic and I was right . Burnt up a brand spanking new Freud bit . The one I used has the bearing at the end .
This is what's left of it after the smoke show
What I was trying to accomplish is I wanted to cut 3 separate fairly accurate holes in a two by six so I could mount 3 single electrical outlets .
So I built a template from mdf and made it so I could slide it down from one hole to the next location and re secure it thinking this would be the most efficient way to cut perfect rectangular holes.
Here's a pic with it secured to the 2/6
So this is the position the 2/6 is in as I'm trying to route threw the wood . I drilled a hole so that the router bit could go threw and follow the jig
But because I'm lazy and didn't use a jig saw to remove the majority of the material first , it just ended up destroying the bit . I was surprised as it's just a cheap pine 2/6 and I thought it would go threw like butter .
Well I'm debating to buy the other straight bit tomorrow that has the bearing at the base instead , thinking that maybe because it has a cutter head on it's tip that it will do the job .
Or am I wasting another 30 bucks?
