Default Edge start round -nosed bit?

Can a round nosed bit be started at the edge of a board, as in cutting a groove lengtwise in , say, a 6 inch board ? I have to laminate 2 pieces of 3/4 wood, 4 x 6inches square, and then drill a 3/8 inch hole through the centre of the lamination for a 3/8 bolt. I thought it would be easier to route a groove in both boards before laminating, but I have read that this type of bit should be plunged into the wood. Any advice "wood" be appreciated! BigGuy

Hi Andre - Welcome to the forum
No reason you couldn't start at the edge with a roundnose bit. The job you're describing I would certainly do it that way.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

  • Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
