Hi Ken |
I do my home work,,b/4 I buy off eBay, like they say buyer beware...it may take me days to check out the seller but then I will buy from him/her..if they are ok...
"These quality Router Bits are manufactured
using quality Micro Grain Carbides.
These bits are ISO K10 Carbide with a HRC91 hardness rating."
The same as the Higher end bits...

WOW!! Those are cheap bits. |
The sad thing for me is, I just don't trust ebay.

#7313 ,you only need the 3 bits...80.oo bucks, Rockler is 94.oo bucks,the full set from MLCS is 98.oo bucks for the full set, but the Key for me is the FREE SHIPPING shipping is 10.oo bucks the norm for me..the bottom line is the key for me...the norm.

HI Mike, Thanks for the reply. |
I'd be very interested to see if anyone here (on the forums), has such a bit set and can make the hinges with them or, if they'd be willing to give a try. I know I would try it if I had such a set. I do see your point but, I have a concern about it though. If you look at where the "barrel" is, that would be a very thin piece of material holding the barrel when cutting the notches for the knuckles. As I've learned the hard way, it does matter of which way the grain is running. For I've "chipped" off a few "knuckles" trying to cut those notches. If I had such a bit set, I'd be willing to give it try just to see if it would work.
Once the weather straightens up around here, I'll be making me some more hinges just for boxes. BTW, I blame Bj for getting me hooked on this wonderful "toy".

Hi Mike |
I know the one you are talking about,,,it's clipped on the top side of the bit and it needs to be the same on both, like the bull nose bit...plus it needs to be almost flush on the bottom of the hinges,,,so the hinge can swing open and close but still be glued/screwed flat in place, but thanks for the tip.

|Mike||Just a thought: It appears that the specialty bit designed for making wooden toy train tracks might be an even better choice for creating wooden hinges. I am speaking about the bit designed for cutting the connecting peg on the end of the track. This bit should give you perfectly round barrels with two vertical passes along the fence.|
