Product Description

3-1/2" (Dia.) Raised Panel Bit with 1/2" Shank

Amazon.com

Designed for the serious woodworker, the Freud 99-518 Quadra-Cut - 3-1/2 Inch Dia. Cove Profile Raised Panel 3/4-Inch Stock 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, allowing you to create raised panels for doors and paneling and produce decorative tops, plaques, and molding. Because it's constructed with Freud's exclusive TiCo Hi-Density Carbide MicroGrain material, this durable router bit is designed to last.

Quadra-Cut Design for a Consistently Clean Finish
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.

Produce Smooth Paneling and Decorative Molding
Use the 99-518 Raised Panel Router Bit on any table-mounted portable router that accepts a 1/2-inch shank for creating professional-quality raised panels on doors and paneling, as well as decorative tops, plaques, and molding. The resulting panels will exhibit a glassy smoothness, even when you're tackling cross-grain applications.

The 99-518 features a 5/8-inch carbide height that easily accommodates stock measuring 3/4 inches.

Durable Design with Protective Coating to Resist Heat and Corrosion
Freud equips all of their router bits with their exclusive TiCo Hi-Density MicroGrain carbide for maximum durability and cutting life. In addition, Freud shields their bits from heat, rust, corrosion and wear by coating all of their Quadra-Cut Router Bits with their exclusive non-stick, red Perma-SHIELD coating.

The 99-518 Raised Panel Router Bit is 2-1/2 inches long with a 1/2-inch shank, an overall diameter of 3-1/2 inches, and a large radius of 1-1/2 inches. Freud cutting tools are backed by the Freud Limited Lifetime Cutting Tool Warranty to ensure customer satisfaction with every purchase.

One of several quadra-cut bits I own, and like the others, produces a very smooth cut, with minimal sanding to remove machine marks afterwards.
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)

Purchased in November, 2013, I have used this bit to make raised panels in walnut, with a JessEm Excel table and a Porter-Cable 7518 motor. The bit is exceptionally sharp and produced lacy shavings; there was no noticeable tear-out even when cutting against the grain.

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!

Three years ago, my company closed so I took a 30-year long hobby of woodworking to the streets. One of the things I learned early in this process is that having tools which consistently perform well is essential for meeting the quality and production standards of fussy customers. Lately, I have been busy making built-ins, and that means lots of custom raised panel doors. Simply said, this bit cuts with little effort, and does indeed produce a smooth finish along the end grain of the panel. I've used it on poplar (cuts that like butter) and maple so far, and the results are spectacular. I'm slowly working up to industrial grade equipment, so some of my tools are still hobby grade. I'm using a Dewalt 619 plunge router on a home made router table with a simple drop-in mounting plate. Since I don't have an adjustable lift, my only beef with this bit, and many others, is that the shaft is about 1/2:" shorter than I would like. Not really the bit's fault, but for some of you hobbyists out there, this may be an important consideration.

Bit worked great except for the tiny nicks it received during the shipping process. Bit came loose from it's large plastic holder and was banging around in it. Had to use it for timing on a project but in retrospect it would have been better to buy retail. The inside of the plastic holder looked like a bomb went off inside. Carbide wins over plastic.

I ordered the Freud 99-518 3-1/2-Inch Raised Panel Bit on October 13, 2013 and it arrived at my doorstep on October 25, 2013.
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.
