I am having trouble understanding how to read the measurements from varies
brand router bits.
Below is for CMT
Below is for Freud:
And there's more, but for the sake to keep this short.
As much I understand raised panel routering, I look for the rail/stile
depth, that's it (for now). You know, it's either 3/8" or 7/16". But when I
look for that in their rail/stile set webpages, I can't locate those depth
measurements. I even sometime try arithmetic using other measurements
provided, IF ANY, then add or subtract, still doesn't give me the groove
depth. Example for CMT rail/stile (891.502.11), the "R" is 25/64", what is
There's "overall diameter", "overall length", "large/small radius", and few
other terminology. Is there a link **
that can explain what
terminology means and how the measurements go about? Forgive me for not
google it before expressing in here... :(
