5/8" Radius X 1/2" Shank Corner Round Router Bit

Flush trim profile

  • The corner-rounding bit rounds an edge to a given radius
  • The tool is shouldered to cut a fillet if required
  • The cut can be used to ease edges, as a simple profile, or as a part of a complex one
  • Other names for this router bit are round-over, rounding over and quarter-round
  • If a smaller pilot bearing is used, a second shoulder can be produced, in effect making the bit a beading bit
  • Rounded edges give a project a softer, smoother look
  • The greater the radius of the round-over, the more pronounced this effect becomes
  • Rounding an edge makes it more durable because it won't show dents, splinter, or lose its finish as easily as a sharp corner
  • Like a blade that loses its sharp edge, a rounded corner is more "friendly" to people or objects that come in contact with it
  • How to measure the radius
    Manufacturers classify round-over bits according to the radius they cut
  • So, a 3/8 inch round-over bit cuts a 3/8 inch radius, and so forth
  • To determine the radius of a round-over bit, measure either of the dimensions shown in the drawing

NB: This router bit has a 12,7mm shank (shaft) that will fit most large routers. Please ensure that you select a router bit with a shank (shaft) size that will fit into your router collet.
