Post edge banding with CMT 856.510.11

I have not used this bit yet but am not clear about how to register both bits to precisely the same finished surface level.The face layer of fines on MDF is pretty thin and so I want to avoid having to do any thing more than the absolute minimum of post-gluing clean off. Any suggestions suitable for an elderly amateur? Perplexed but hopeful, Andros

Hi Andros.

Could you please check the number. I could not locate that number in the Carbatec range nor the CMT web site.

CMT 855.510.11 2-Pcs Edge Banding Bit Set, 1-37/64-Inch, 1/2-Inch Shank - Amazon.com

It's a tricky bit on MDF ,the MDF likes to chip out so you must make a pass or two or three to get that nice clean edge.

Using a block of wood stuck to the edge with tape so have a backer board so to speak,to keep the edge down on the MDF.

The hardwood you will not have a problem with but use a wider stick and then rip to the size than you want to end up with, two sticks you could say at one time..

Just a note use the female bit 1st. and then put in the male part of the set and use female, to set the bit ..make a test part 1st to check the fit..

The same as the youtube below

If you haven't purchased that bit yet you might want to check the Burgess edge banding bit out. You don't lose as much wood using it. Burgess Edge Router Store | Router Bits, Shaper Bits, Shaper Cutter, Glue, Woodworking tools

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.

re my question about setting edge banding bit:
1.Shamefaced aplogies to everybody, particularly to JW 2170,for a careless typo. The proper catalogue no. is 855-510-11 and not 856 etc.
2.Thanks bobj3for your full and helpful reply though the remark about MDF breakout confirms my suspicions of trouble to come.
