Default Looking for a spiral flush trim with more than 2" capacity

Anyone out there know of a spiral flush trim bit with a cutting capacity over 2"?

Can even be a bit for a shaper doesn't matter.

Thank you

This bit is 4" long, w/2" cutting capacity , you would have to make more than one pass to cut 3" deep. What are you trying to cut?

Several companies make a spiral trim with a 2" CL - Freud 75-509, Amana 46304. way expensive, though.

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.

Visit my shop website.

Maybe use Herb's suggestion with an edge guide?

If you look at Herb's example, couldn't you use the shaft as the edge guide...? After making a shallow cut and edge with a shorter trim bit...?

Thanks guys, I know there are several good quality spiral bits with 2" cutting capacity on them, but as we've seen there doesn't seem to be anything over that 2" capacity. It's gotta be a spiral bit with bearing for flush trim.

I'm hoping to put round corners on thicker cutting boards with a round corner template... fast, easy and more importantly... accurate.

But I can't cut anything over 2" thick, was hoping to make a few thicker cutting boards by request.
