Ply Prep router bit, manufactured by Whiteside Machinery, solves that annoying old
problem of core expansion in plywood and other sheet goods. It cuts
a slight depression on the edge of the plywood leaving the surface
veneers proud. The adjoining molding will not be pushed away from
the skins when there is a little space for inner plies to swell
being wet with glue. This makes it easy to get perfect closure every
time. You can actually clamp with masking tape and never have to
putty a seam again.
body of the bit has a registration mark to align with the center ply
and insure a square edge. The micrograin carbide cutting edge is 1
inch long and will scallop material from 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick.
It is generally used with a stepped fence (to avoid snipe) or a
clamped-on straight edge.
you build shelving units, entertainment centers, libraries or
anything at all using plywood, you need one of these.
