Beading bits are similar to the roundover profile, but a smaller bearing produces a delicate inset at the base of the cut, giving you an extra decorative option. Equipped with a bearing for easy template work, this bit features super-strength superior steel body, Non-Stick Orange Shield Coating and cutting edges made of SinterHip Hi-Density Industrial Chrome Carbide for a long-lasting performance. To be used on router tables only. Not for use on hand-held routers. After a test performed by Wood Magazine, CMT orange bits have been rated the first overall router bits compared to other brands.
From the Manufacturer
The smaller bearing on the CMT Beading bits makes a delicate inset at the base of the cut, giving you the advantage of an extra decorative option. Simply change the bearing on your Roundover bit to create a bead profile. Important: always assemble the black bearing heat shield with the raised side up when changing the bearing. Improper assembly will cause the screw to come loose and the bearing to fall off when working. All CMT Roundover Bits have a 1/2 bearing diameter with the exception of the 1-1/8 and the 1-1/4 bits which have a 3/4 bearing diameter. You have 13 different radii to choose from, the majority with 2 shank diameter options. All bits are made of Fatigue Proof® steel and have carbide tipped cutting edges.
