Default "What is it?" #99

Staying with router bits for 99 points tell us about this bit. I'm mostly interested in what type of bit it is and why you would use this type bit. If you think you're good tell us who makes the bit, what size it is, and hey tell me how much I paid for it and why I bought it..... those things are extra credit.....

So for the 99 points be the first one with a good descriptive answer......

3/4 Straight bit for dados and rabbets. Looks like a Jesada bit cost approx 12.00

Looks as if the cutters are raked, so it may be a flush trim bit without a bearing.

Ed,
This looks like a plunge cutting bit with a bottom center cutter. With the bottom cutter there is no need to predrill a hole before cutting. This bit could be used for stopped dadoes, mortising and interior cutout work. It looks like it's dia. is 1/2" of 3/4" with a 1/4" shank. Katana and MCLS are just two sources. The 1/4" 1/2" dia. costs about $13.00. I can't tell who the mfg. is although Jesade and Infinity use a white coating.

Ah yes the bit you need when you plunge! This one is made by Hickory, 1/4" shank 1/2" dia, 1" high. I found it on sale at TWC (thewoodworkerschoice.com) for $4.00 US. I wanted to try my hand at some signs this spring and wanted to see what flat bottom letters would look like.... someone mentioned this idea on another post back a couple of months......

Anyway you did very well and earned the points and the title of winner!
