Product Description

An industry leader for over 50 years, the Freud name equals quality, precision and craftsmanship. Freud router bits feature Freud made TiCo Hi-Density Carbide for maximum cutting life. Each bit is individually balanced, giving a cut above the rest. Revolutionary Quadra-Cut design employs four cutting edges vs. two, for a flawless finish that requires no sanding or rework. Two carbide cutters have an up-shear angle to remove most of the stock while the second pair of down-shear cutters makes a final cut to produce an ultra clean edge. Add distinctive design to cabinets, furniture, plaques and millwork with this decorative edging bit. All bits have 1/2" shanks.

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.

Create Decorative Edging for a Distinctive Look
Use the 38-172 Ogee Bit with any handheld or table-mounted portable router that accepts a 1/2-inch shank for that perfect finishing touch that is distinctly Ogee-style on all of your wood furniture, molding, and cabinetry pieces. This Ogee bit produces an incredibly accurate 5/32-inch radius cut for smooth, decorative edges.

The 38-172 Ogee Router Bit consistently produces professional-looking results, and it's versatile too. You can use it to add a decorative touch to plaques, frames, millwork, cabinets, and most furniture pieces.

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 38-172 Quadra-Cut Ogee Router Bit measures 2-1/4 inches long and has a 1/2-inch shank and a 5/32-inch cutting radius. Freud cutting tools are backed by their exclusive Freud Limited Lifetime Cutting Tool Warranty to ensure customer satisfaction with every purchase.

Style Name: 1-1/8-Inch Diameter Cove and Bead Router Bit with 1/4-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
We bought butcher block for our kitchen and edged it with this router. I love the lines. It was exactly what i was looking for. (We then stained and sealed the counter top). Definitely have plenty of other projects i plan to use this bit on now.

Style Name: Quadra- Cut 1-3/8-Inch Diameter Classical Cove and Round Router Bit with 1/2-Inch
I have a lot of router bits ranging from cheap to very expensive. This is my first quadra-cut bit, but will surely not be my last! I just used this bit 30 minutes ago to treat the edge of a walnut table top. The extra cutters made a huge difference. The only sanding I had to do was just to drag a rolled up piece of 320 through the coves on the end grain. I was done in < 1 minute rather than the 30-45 minutes I'd expect to spend with other bits with similar profiles. Also, after making a test cut in some scrap, I decided to take a full cut in one pass on my workpiece rather than several smaller passes. It worked just fine with no bogging or tear-out; like cutting butter.

I will definitely check the quadra-cut lineup first before I buy another new router bit from any other manufacturer.

Style Name: 5/32" Radius Roman Ogee Bit Verified Purchase
Being a wood worker for many years, this bit save a whole lot of labor, and bit sharping. Last year we did almost 160 tops with a solid maple wood edge. They needed a Roman OG profile on them. I went thur 4 bits sharpened four times before we were done. So far we have done 46 tops and I have not gotten a bit sharpened yet. We make the first 2 passes with the regular bit and use the Quadra bit for the final cut.

Style Name: Quadra- Cut 1-9/16-Inch Diameter Cove and Bead Router Bit with 1/2-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
I BOUGHT THIS BIT BECAUSE IT HAS A 1/2 INCH SHANK. A BIT COSTLY BUT IT DID THE JOB AND IT WAS WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY. THIS IS THE FIRST ROUTER BIT I OWN WITH THAT 1/2 INCH SHANK BUT, IT WON'T BE THE LAST. A LOT LESS VIBRATION AND NO BURNING. IT'S A PIECE OF WORK.

Style Name: Quadra- Cut 1-9/16-Inch Diameter Cove and Bead Router Bit with 1/2-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
This is the second Freud quadra-cut bit I own. They both leave a very smooth cut in poplar and cherry (only woods I have used them with so far). I didn't experience any burning with either wood. I was able to take the full cut in one pass with no problem. I have run about 100 feet through this particular bit and other than my own setup problem (not at all the bits fault) which resulted in a bit of snipe at the start the profile was excellent all the way through the cut.

For the record I tend to be a frugal purchaser, but if you have a profile that you expect to run a fair amount of wood through and want a good result and long term use, this appears to be worth the slightly higher price tag in my opinion

Style Name: 1-1/4-Inch Diameter Classical Bold Cove and Bead Router Bit with 1/4-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
I've been using the 12" shank Freud QUADRA bits for a while in my 2 HP BOSCH router and have waited for the 1/4" shank version to use with my smaller, detail, router. I'm happy to report the Freud QUADRA 1/4" shank bit is living up to my expectations. It really does save a lot of fussy sanding that causes some projects to lose the sharp detail that is difficult to maintain. The QUADRA bits are more expensive, but time IS money too. So, pull the trigger and I think you'll be as pleased as I am with the results.
