Question What kind of bit is this?

Is it a dowel hole cutter?
I've just seen it as part of an auction and I have no idea.
Sorry the picture is really small - I can't zoom in any better because of the auction site and the way they do things.

I should add I checked out Carbitool's site but couldn't find the bit in their listing, nor the other regular place I'd buy bits from

May have answered my own question - is it a plug cutter?

@1fizgig


Does it have a number on it, Steve?

Hi James

Sorry I can't tell - if I could zoom in and see it clearly I'd tell you

that might be a mortising bit

Stick nailed it I think. Picture isn’t very good but I have at least one old one like that.

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.

I also think it's a mortising bit. Really hard to see, but it looks like it has a bearing. Definitely not a plug cutter. Tried to blow it up, but it just pixilated.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

It's interesting. I got a maybe slightly better picture, but that was trying to zoom i to the maximum Chrome would let me. It's still not great and I can't get any numbers or anything, but it does look like it only has two cutters unlike the plug cutters above.

Looks like a Plug Cutter to me. I have some myself, I would suggest that you only use it with a pillar drill.

Edit. Maybe not if it only has 2 edges, and it does say Router bit on the package. Mmmm.... Think we need a bigger picture.
