Default Double top bearing flush

I need to have a large (read wide) bearing surface for a flush/template bit. Is it ok to stack 2 bearings on the shank of the bit?

yes if the bit shank has the room...
don't forget to put a thin spacer washer between the bearings to protect the seals.....

It was a quick post, I was hoping to get by the woodworker shop today which did not happen. A little back story on the project. I am rebuilding a sewing maching table and used AutoCAD to make a template; which, if the drawing was correct, worked wonderfully. Currently I am laminating two sheets of plywood together. The top sheet has a rectangle with radii cut out. The bottom sheet needs the same rectange but with chamfers. My plan is to secure a guide to the top for the chamfers and use the existing rectangle for the rest of it.

Welcome Dan. Rough cut out the opening to about an eighth inch from the template. Trying to cut it out with the router is much harder on the bit that just a trim cut. If you put the template on top you can use a pattern (template) bit with the bearings on the shaft. If you put the template on the bottom you can use a flush trim bit with the bearing on the bottom. Either way works. Make sure you have about an inch of shaft in the routers collet.

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.
