Is it a dowel hole cutter?
I've just seen it as part of an auction and I have no idea.
Sorry the picture is really small - I can't zoom in any better because of the auction site and the way they do things.

I should add I checked out Carbitool's site but couldn't find the bit in their listing, nor the other regular place I'd buy bits from

Stick nailed it I think. Picture isn’t very good but I have at least one old one like that.

I also think it's a mortising bit. Really hard to see, but it looks like it has a bearing. Definitely not a plug cutter. Tried to blow it up, but it just pixilated.

It's interesting. I got a maybe slightly better picture, but that was trying to zoom i to the maximum Chrome would let me. It's still not great and I can't get any numbers or anything, but it does look like it only has two cutters unlike the plug cutters above.

Looks like a Plug Cutter to me. I have some myself, I would suggest that you only use it with a pillar drill.

Edit. Maybe not if it only has 2 edges, and it does say Router bit on the package. Mmmm.... Think we need a bigger picture.

And I have a plug cutter like this. I don't think it matters if it only has two edges.

Sadly that's as good a picture as I can get.

Either way, I don't own it, but if I win the auction I'll be able to provide more details ;)

All the plug cutters that look like that have 4 legs instead of two. At least all the ones I have or have seen.
