Reversible Window Sash Router Bit (Whiteside 6050)

Recommended Posts

Hi, José,

That's an interesting bit set. Not having any experience with that bit, usually you use a washer between bearings and the cutters if there is no stop collar (a ring with a tiny set screw to lock it to the shaft). I'm surprised Whiteside doesn't have complete instructions on that so I'm going by the picture in the Amazon page.

I assume you know to use a coping sled with a backer or at least a big backer when pushing through the end grain. Actually, do the end-grain profiling before the long-grain profiling, especially on the mullions.

Searching around for instructions turned up pretty dry. Have to say I'm disappointed with Whiteside's site. Their PDF catalog (page 30) has a better picture than the Amazon page, but not by much. But, yes, washer between bearing and cutters :)
