Looked at those earlier today--that 2" looks huge in the pic--can't imagine what it would look like in person!!

I've been using planing bits for a long time on my ornamental mill. The one thing to remember if using them is that the wider the bit, the greater any error in your setup is magnified in your project. I find the 1-1/4 diameter a good compromise between speed and accuracy.

I'm not sure I'd want to run a 2" bit in a hand held router. I suppose it would be safe if you are careful to take just a little bit with each pass but still...

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

These bits were released last year and David is selling a lot of them. Infinity bits are good quality. Infinity has been a friend of the forums for many years; they have provided prizes for contests.
