Why not protect the face with plastic or even 1/4" MDF and route as you normally would. If this is clear plastic you could possible scratch the back side and see it through the front.Im new here and to the world of routing so I need some help on this one. I searched and found some related 60 degree forum threads, but not exactly what I needed.
First off, is there any way I can get a 60 or at the least a 45 degree chamfer bit that is reversed or upside down oriented like a dovetail bit V instead of the most common chamfer ^ style?
I need this because my surface that needs to be scratch free would have to be laid down on the table with my normal chamfer 45 degree bit and I cant do that. I would be scratching the hell out of my delicate surface trying to bevel the edges. So I need the chamfer bit to be reversed like a dovetail bit. Does this exist? If not, do they have a 60 degree angle dovetail bit that could work and do pretty much the same beveling edge look?
So here's exactly what I need. Im cutting 1/8" plastic so my bit doesn't have to be extremely big. I would need it with a guide bearing and the shank is 1/4".
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
p.s. I was at the store the other day and the guy said I can build my own bit piece by piece. Is this true and could I do this for a 60 degree with bearing chamfer bit? Price more expensive?
