Another great CMT product. Cuts in hardwood are smooth with no cutter marks. Very little sanding needed.

This is a replacement bit since my prior version was damaged and dull. Be careful to tighten the set screw for the bearing...it may work loose over time. Very good and prompt delivery at a good price.

I use this bit for making "routered bowls" ... it works great AND is the only bit I've found that works with the collet extensions sold, here, on Amazon.
Good quality and a good price.

I tend to buy once and cry once. I buy CMT bits because they're high quality and I like having nice tools in my shop. I bought this bowl bit for a hall bench project with a dished seat. (A spring 2012 Woodsmith project) It worked well for that task and I expect that I'll use it again in other projects. Really hogs out a lot of chips in a hurry. Recommended if you need a bowl & tray bit.

I purchased this bit to make laminated hardwood candy dishes for gifts. This bit was mounted on a collet extension in a plunge router. I was able to bore out the dishes down to a depth of 2 inches and both the sides and bottom were smooth requiring very little sanding.

The product seems to be great, but the packing was very surprising. The product comes in a hard plastic case to protect it, but this one was received in the shipping box rattling around like crazy. When opened, the bit was rattling around loose in the box with the product case obviously previously opened and re-closed 90 degrees from proper orientation. It was obvious the bit was just thrown in the shipping box along with the product box as separate entities. Fortunately the bit is very rugged and doesn't appear to be damaged.

Worked like a champ with very little sanding required. I did burnish a couple areas in the corners of the first tray I made but that was my own fault.

This is my first foray into bowl and tray cutting so I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm using this (and the collett extension) to make some change trays and a chip & dip tray. It's taking a bit of practice to get used to the set up but net of my own mistakes this bit is excellent. It follows the template very well and really eats the wood. CMT makes a great product here and I just bought a CMT top bearing straight bit for the outsides of my projects.
