Default "What is it?" #24

This one should be easy since this is a router forum so have a go at it. Tell us what it is used for and give some details like why would one use this rather then that..... you know details. I still have some points to give away so the first right answer is worth 100 of them.

A roundover router bit with edge guide:

I got one like this with my first router over 30 years ago (Sears 1/4 hp, 1/4" dia. bits). The "bearing" surface is attached to the bit and tends to burn the wood. This pre-dates the use of bearings used on new roundover bits. You can see the accumulation of debris on the bearing edge from this burning action.

Looks like 1/4" shaft dia. and perhaps 1/4" roundover radius.

You are very close!!!!! Not enought to win but close.

Yes this looks a lot like the bits of old and I still have my old sears bits laying around but notice that the bottom is brass...... and these bits are "newer" and still sold for a reason, this one is maybe 4 years old but the catalogs as it most likely will be for a while yet.

Hint: When I posted some questions about a "climbing bear" someone suggested using this........

Roundover bit to follow a pattern when the pattern forms tight places ... i.e. ears on a toy or two lines of the pattern coming together and not enough room for a bearing.
