The exclusive Quadra-Cut design uses four cutters for a flawless finish. This innovative cutter design works by utilizing two of the cutters for an upward cutting action, while the other two cutters simultaneously cut downward. The result is an amazingly smooth finish that requires no rework.

Freud Router Bits are known for their exceptional quality, unmatched precision and maximum cutting life. The bits are carefully crafted using the best materials, the industry's most sophisticated manufacturing processes, and include exclusive Freud features such as TiCo Hi-Density Carbide and red Perma-SHIELD non-stick coating. Freud's bits also contain revolutionary, innovative designs such as Quadra-Cut and Double-Grind.
TiCo Hi-Density carbide is a specially formulated, highly compact Titanium Cobalt Carbide engineered and manufactured by Freud to maximize performance on all Freud cutting tools. Designed in Freud research and development laboratories, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density carbide is scientifically developed using Titanium Carbide, Cobalt and Tungsten (as well as proprietary elements), to produce a supreme product. Carbide size is extremely important when it comes to sharpness as well as the rate at which an edge wears. The larger the carbide grain, the faster an edge will wear. While standard carbides measure as large as 5 microns, and an advanced micrograin carbide can measure 1 micron, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density Carbide is miniscule in comparison at .8 microns, with a laminate blend as small as .4 microns.

Mine is used while table-mounted with a 2.25HP variable speed (Necessary to run large diameter bits at lower RPM!) Bosch router.
For the cleanest cuts, I suggest making multiple passes (this is true for all bits where a lot of material must be removed, not just this one...Free Tip!)
There is a bearing which can be interchanged with aftermarket bearings as well, if you want a smaller diameter of cut.
I used this most recently to undercut the top of a media center top (photo)
This is a big, heavy, very substantial bit. Even with the speed turned down to 10,000 rpm, the tips on a bit of this size are traveling in excess of 100 mph. Make sure your work is well secured (I used a carriage with vacuum clamping to hold 8" x 8" elliptical blanks) and make a series of light cuts!

Upon arrival I opened the Amazon boxed package to see my purchase and was very disappointed by the packaging, although it was packaged by Amazon with plastic balloon bags to keep the case with the bit firmly in place the problem is within the storage case that holds the bit. If you look at the ending video I uploaded with my review you'll notice the storage case and the little booklet is badly damaged by the Router bit because it came out of the slot in the base of the storage case and moved around pretty violently during transportation. However that was not really a concern to me, the real problem was if my Router bit cutting edges had been chipped then it would've been some major problem. I say major because I live in Trinidad, West Indies and to send back my Router bit would really be a big problem for me. It would've been very costly for me to send it back, so think of my dilemma!
I have to blame the Freud company and not Amazon because if an item like this is moving from destination to destination then I think they had better get their act together and place some sort of Styrofoam or some type of proper packaging material within the storage compartment to prevent these type of expensive bits from falling out of its slot where the bit is placed. This bit cost me $658.00 TTD after tax clearance and freight charges included and to pay that sum of money I think they can do better than that.Read more ›
