Hi, went to my first wood show yesterday..Man o man my head is still spinning with all that neat stuff that i think, i need, to do the job right.:)
I bought a wood set for putting hard wood on the edge of plywood.I seen Bob use a birds mouth bit, I think. the folks at the show helped me to buy a bit that is supposed to touch 90% of the glue surface. They said it is a new bit that they make.the bit was at the Freud place but its not a freud. The plywood bit has a bearing on it ,when I lined up the bearing flush with the fence and took my 3/4 ply through it ,It dug in so much that there was a 1/16 to 1/8 gap on the other side of the fence between the work and the fence.. I didnt even try the hard wood bit because i dont think i am doing something right.. THE profile of the bit is square in the center and angles out to the edges.. Does any body know what this bit is called and How do I use it???????? thanks :confused:

Does the set look like these?

It sounds like the you need to set the bit further into the fence so that it lines up with the max depth of your cut (not the bearing), or you need to shim the outfeed fence out a bit to support the stock,and work it like you would when edge joining stock. If you run it the way it is you'll have a lot of snipe on the ends of your stock, and have to cut it off.

Practice for a while in some cheap stuff like MDF until you figure out what works best.

Doug,
Yes,
that was the bit the 60 degree bit set. http://pricecutter.com/product.asp_Q_pn_E_P16-4040

I guess the bearing was made for ... I dont know why the bearing is on the ply bit but not the hard wood bit .
I dont think I would have bought this bit if it takes this long to set up.
I am trying to KISS . Keep IT Simped Stupid mind set. I want to have more fun and enjoyment doing wood working than wasting wood. I will try it some more and see if its worth it. Thanks for the help.

Just one more link

Just one more link for the bit set.

http://www.mlcswoodworking.com
Part # 5432,5433,7732,7733
1/4" and 1/2" Shanks
$39.00 and $44.95 with free shipping the norm.
With a bearning on the male bit(s)

I have both 1/2" shank sets (60deg. and 90deg.) and the setup is a bit tricky but once you have it set your good to go, I cut the male 1st and then cut it down to size on the table saw.( 3/4" to 7/8" thick the norm.) the bits are 1" high.
I also use two router tables for this bit setup,just incase I screw up one of the parts cutting the 45deg.ends or run short on oak the banding.
"I cut them 3 times and it's still to short" hahahahaha

Have a good one.
