Product Description

Designed for the serious woodworker, the Freud 38-172 Quadra-Cut - 1-1/8 Inch Dia. Ogee Router Bit - 1/2-Inch Shank features a non-stick Perma-Shield coating and Freud's patented Quadra-Cut design for a smoother finish that requires no rework. Quadra-Cut employs four cutting blades, rather than the industry standard of two, letting you create professional-quality decorative edging for cabinets, molding, and furniture on a variety of stock, including composition materials, plywood, hardwood, and softwood. Because it's constructed with Freud's exclusive TiCo Hi-Density Carbide MicroGrain material, this durable router bit is designed to last.

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.
