I had several dated bits that were in need of upgrading. Never having
used Freud, I purchased a few.
I always inspect a new bit before use and I noticed a potential
problem with one of them - an ogee bit. On the interior or center of
the cardide cutter, each cutter has a weld only at the top and bottom
- the center portion is void of a weld. If only one cutter had this
type of weld, I would think it was a defect. However, because each
cutter has the same type of weld, which by the way is symmetric and
neatly done, it looks to be intentional.
Is there a reason for this type of weld or do I just have a defective
