Description

Sommerfeld's Tools For Wood Introduces A Revolutionary New Design! The Chip-Free Ogee Rail & Stile Set is designed to eliminate tear-out! Shaper Cutters have been made like this for a long time, but this is the first time it has ever been introduced on a router bit. This rail & stile design eliminates chipping that is caused by a buildup of stress on the leading edges of the pattern.

Also available in a cove profile, #02011.

WOOD magazine review

No more tear-out on door profiles

Review Summary

We never thought a tiny radius could make such a huge difference, but it does. Sommerfeld’s Chip-Free Rail-and-Stile bit sets have two small radius cutters on the stile bit of this two-piece set that follow the primary profile cutters, slightly rounding over the top and bottom edge along the panel groove. This innovative feature virtually eliminates tear-out along the profile edges, helping you create cleaner, more attractive cabinet doors.
We’ve battled this problem for years with a number of different rail-and-stile cutters with no good solution to fix the tear-out; these bits just do away with the problem up front. Nice!
