And I have a plug cutter like this. I don't think it matters if it only has two edges.

Sadly that's as good a picture as I can get.

Either way, I don't own it, but if I win the auction I'll be able to provide more details

I think it is definitely a mortising bit. You use it to cut hinge mortises (shallow). Since it says "Router Bit" on the package it is not a plug cutter. A router to cut plugs would burn the plug up before you could extract it from the hole.

Plug cutters aren't typically used with a router...

All the plug cutters that look like that have 4 legs instead of two. At least all the ones I have or have seen.

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.

It's a motorising bit. It's made to plung cut then follow a pattern. I have used one for many years
