From the Manufacturer

Freud's precision ground carbide bits have a grain size smaller than other grades, and titanium is added making them impervious to chemical attack. Promoting safer woodworking is the reason Freud made a commitment to develop anti-kickback router bits. Bits are computer balanced to insure vibration-free operation at speeds that are a safe margin above the typical 22,000 RPMs of most routers. Freud's philosophy is woodworkers should expect safety, not pay for it. Overall diameter 3/8-inch, carbide height 1-inch, shank diameter 1/4-inch.

Style Name: 3/4-Inch Downshear Helix Flush Trim Bit Verified Purchase
This bit is HUGE. I think the photo is of the shorter 1" version, while this 42-204 model has a full 2" of cutting area. It's a monster.

But it's exactly what I needed to trim the edge of a 1.5" workbench top made from two pieces of 3/4 MDF. Very smooth, very stable, and cut well.

As always, wear gloves when trying to remove the bit from the case--the Freud cases often hold the bit pretty tight, so don't try and grab this bit with your bare hands.

Style Name: 3/4-Inch Downshear Helix Flush Trim Bit Verified Purchase
If you own a router you should own this bit. I used this bit to rout out an under mount sink's cut-out in a piece of 1 1/2" butcher's block. Obviously you have to cut away all but about 1/8" of an inch before using this, but once I'd done that I was able to get a really nice finish with no tear-out.

If you are going to use this as I did make sure you tape the top of the sink so the bearing doesn't mess up the finish.

I also used this to trim off about 1/16th" of the face frame on my sink cabinet. Once again, it delivered a nearly perfect finish (and it would have been perfect if my wife had not interrupted my routing). Never stop moving the router if you can!!

Keep it clean, simple green does a great job getting off the resin. Freud, as per usual, makes great tools and I can't think of any reason to buy a cheaper brand.

Style Name: 3/8-Inch Diameter 2-Flute Flush Trimming Router Bit with 1/4-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
This bit worked for less than two hours before the bearing broke off. I took it in to my bud at the lumber store to see if he had parts to possibly fix it, but he had another broken one sitting on his desk, that some other customer had returned because it broke after only a few hours. It started out cutting well, but it just doesn't hold up. If you only need it for very light use, it might be fine, but I can't recommend it.

I ordered this bit because it wood trim a full 2"s. I bought the large length a few years back and had to either manually trim the piece or run it through a thickness planer to remove the untrimmed maerial. This bit does the job and as they advertise it is sharp sharp sharp.

Blades are sharp and perfectly balanced. This piece had a defective bearing which fell off after first 2 minutes of use.

I was having problems with catches in following a pattern around curves with maple. This bit really helped in making it possible to complete the project. The angle of the flutes helps in not hitting the grain head on but rather at a slight angle.

Style Name: 3/4-Inch Downshear Helix Flush Trim Bit
Worked wonderfully for removing material from 1.5" thick hardwood butcher block (solid beech, from IKEA). Left a very smooth edge, no tearout, chipping, or chatter. Hot knife though butter.

Had to join 3 pieces of butcher block to make an island, used this to remove the radius applied at the edges such that I could have square edges a the joints. Would purchase again.
