The difference an additional flute makes is incredible. End grain burn is all but eliminated and the surface finish is superb. Well worth the cost, very pleased with the purchase.
Cuts nice and crisp edge on hardwood boxes I make. so much better than my 2 flute bit.
I have the 3 flute 45 deg bit and that cuts superb crisp edges.
Worth every penny, cuts are clean, no tearout and great manufacturing quality.
Great product and excellent service.
3 Flute Top Bearing Plunge Router Bit 12.7mm x 25mm
Cuts beautifully, leaves a nice finish that requires minimal sanding.
As I have not yet got to the point in my guitar build where I have had to use this rebate router bit, I can’t honestly say that it works well. I will however say that the quality of manufacture is brilliant as with all the other bits I have bought from Radian Tools I therefore hold out great hope for this one also. Should anything go wrong with routing the binding channel on my guitar body, I am sure it will be the fault of the user not the bit as it will be my first time. As I have not used the bit I have only given 4 stars but I’m sure in a couple of weeks this will increase to 5.
Nice router bit, the three flutes cetainly make for a smoother finish and help reduce tearout when routing my guitar bodies. Highly recommended.
Excellent! Worth the wait for shipping from UK to Australia
Very happy to own it, just havn't had the opportunity to try it out yet. I think I may have to just gaze at it through it's thick, waxy, rubbery coating in anticipation of a perfectly clean, precise rebate on my next binding job...Ooooh! :)
I've used so many Radiantools' cutters that I know it's great from experience! I had to get this cutter for my own toolbox. Even though it has not arrived yet as the Post Office have lost it (they're trying to find it). I will make lots of guitars with the cutter once I do get it and will surely talk review it properly once it does make it's way to me.
High quality product, well worth the purchase.
Clean guitar neck pocket and pickup routing. Great service and quick delivery to Australia. I will definitely shop again at Radian.
Bought to use in a jig for radiusing fretboards along their length, and works perfectly just as expected. Great little cutter, am sure I'll get many years of use out of it.
Products are excellent, but delivery could be faster, but it is covid time now so I understand little delay. I will order again.
super outil pour la pause de binding sur guitare. une précision au top
4 Flute Dual Bearing Router Bit 19mm x 51mm
Great Product, Bought for doing binding rebates on Guitar Body and Neck. Only test cuts done at the moment, but so far very impressed with how clean the cut is. Also, my initial order got lost/delayed in the post, due to the current COVID situation. The guys at Radian tools dealt with my OCD need for updates really well, and sorted the problem beyond what was required. Thanks again Guys!
So good I bought the larger version too
I use several of Radian's router bits, mainly for electric guitar building. They are all made to exceptionally high standards and this 9.5mm x 12mm cutter is no exception. This router bit is perfect for routing clean, accurate pickup cavities and is a pleasure to work with.
Professional router bit. Ellipse is good shape so you can do different types of carves. I've used it to carve a guitar top then rounded over the top of the cut to make a dome. As usual a very well made tool.
For years I couldn't entertain the idea of paying £60 (including P&P) for a router bit, so I "managed" with cheaper offerings.
Then I saw Ben Crowe at Crimson Guitars using and praising the 4 flute, dual bearing router bit on his YouTube channel.
I decided to bite the bullet and ordered one and I have to say I could not have been more impressed with the performance of the cutter. The quality of the finish it produces is definitely worth the price.
If only I had realised years ago, I would have saved myself a lot of heartache.
This is one very well made router cutter! Incredibly sharp and accurate
Absolutely fantastic, smooth, clean.......excellent, without doubt the best router bit I have ever owned....functional tool and work of art in one.
I've been using Radian cutters for guitar making for over a year now and have been nothing short of blown away by the quality of the cut. This was highlighted when trimming end grain Wenge for a guitar headstock, just perfect, most standard cutters would have left the router screaming and with endless sanding to be done afterwards. With the radian bits, there's not even a suggestion of burning, chatter or tear out. The cut is vibration free and smooth as you like. Very impressive.
At this point I have, all of the 1/4" trimming bits, two or the 1/2" collet trim bits, three binding channel rebate cutters of various sizes and a chamfer bit. Fantastic stuff!
You get what you pay for with tools like these. Very happy
