An industry leader for over 50 years, the Freud name equals quality, precision and craftsmanship. Freud router bits feature Freud made TiCo Hi-Density Carbide for maximum cutting life. Each bit is individually balanced, giving a cut above the rest. Revolutionary Quadra-Cut design employs four cutting edges vs. two, for a flawless finish that requires no sanding or rework. Two carbide cutters have an up-shear angle to remove most of the stock while the second pair of down-shear cutters makes a final cut to produce an ultra clean edge. Add distinctive design to cabinets, furniture, plaques and millwork with this decorative edging bit. All bits have 1/2" shanks.
Designed for the serious woodworker, the Freud 38-172 Quadra-Cut - 1-1/8 Inch Dia. Ogee Router Bit - 1/2-Inch Shank features a non-stick Perma-Shield coating and Freud's patented Quadra-Cut design for a smoother finish that requires no rework. Quadra-Cut employs four cutting blades, rather than the industry standard of two, letting you create professional-quality decorative edging for cabinets, molding, and furniture on a variety of stock, including composition materials, plywood, hardwood, and softwood. Because it's constructed with Freud's exclusive TiCo Hi-Density Carbide MicroGrain material, this durable router bit is designed to last.
