Default Infinity flush trim bits

I'm sure that most members in America are familiar with these bits but I haven't come across them before, they look interesting (and expensive!).

They look similar to ones that Whiteside came out with a few years ago and Whiteside's are very expensive. https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/...-trim-bit.aspx

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.

They look impressive, but I would need to win the lottery before spending that much on one bit ! I only paid $231 for my Bosch EV1617 set !

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

The large diameter.long bits are perfect for flush trimming parts like chair legs in one pass. Used in a router table at the right speed the shearing angle of the bit creates cleaner cuts with less chipout. (depending on wood species and grain orientation). Like everything, cost is relative to type of use. I have had no issues with mine.

Unless you are cutting material very prone to chipping on both sides, those bits are overkill.
An Amana 47134 will do the same thing for a lot less money in almost all cases.

The CMT 806.690.11 is also really good, and even cheaper.

I like Art's version; sort of a commentary on today's 'spend till it hurts' approach to personal finances.
