Ed, when the bearing is on the end of the bit it is called a flush trim bit. When the bearing is on the shank end of the bit it is called a pattern bit. You can view some of them here: MLCS Flush Trim and Shear Angle Flush Trim Router Bits

Hi Ed

The one I like and the best one I have came with the kit below, just made for that type of job..just a note you can also use the templates for Small hinges as well..by putting a small insert (press fit) into the template..made with scrap wood you have around the shop.
