The Bearing on a trim bit is a fence on the bit no less no more..

Default Bits with bearings

BJ has nailed it in as few words as possible. I like it.

I used bits with bearings yesterday to create a decorative edge on a karate belt display unit. The sections are circular and the bearing followed the edge while the Roman Ogee bit cut the edge design.

sorry folks, in all answers I detect a strong desire to sound smart rather than to help, please read again my question where I ask: "how"
I know this will get me in trouble but let's see:
-edge following...
pattern following...
cutting chamfers..
edge forming..
cutting rabbets...
cutting fillets..

-The Bearing on a trim bit is a fence on the bit no less no more.. ( I said: other than flush trimming bit )

-Now that is an interesting perspective!

-Very perceptive, BJ.

-BJ has nailed it in as few words as possible. I like it.

honestly, all those answers don't do much for my "how" question. If you don't agree please don't start an argument that would get us nowhere, just disregard this message but I would appreciate very much any answer that would actually help me.
as always, thank you in advance

Default use of bearings

I"ll try, first any bit that has a bearing can be used freehand or on a table, you can consider it as fence of sorts that gives you the full width of cut of that particular bit or when used on table with a fence you can adjust or isolate the bearing to vary the width of the cut, the depth of course is controlled by the height of the bit that you set by the router adj., but the most important thing about a bearing to my mind is when you use it on a table with no fence but using a pin in the table to router edges of irregular shapes, the bearing is like a stop or a rest to put your wood against along with the pin. There are videos on youtube showing how to use a pin in a router table. safe routering
