Original 3-1/4 HP Plunge Router Flush Bit4/13
I know nothing about woodworking, and
Anyway how to sand router bit using sand paper?
This is not normal after two days use. I would check to make sure you are not running it to slow on the feed rate vs the RPM. Also, may want to look at the material that you are cutting. Also, it could be a just the wrong bit for your application. my2cents
hi Mr Chuck,
It is a flush router bit without bearing, and it is cutter at the bottom. I run 9-10 solid wood board in order to joint and plane the plane wood. Sometimes the wood just burnt (turn to extreme black wood) with some smoke. If not mistaken, i am running the bit at the rate of 18000.
Anyway, i don't know how to describe the "dull". Before i use the bit, i touch and i feel the "cutter" very sharp, and it may cut my hand easily. Now i touch the "cutter" and it is not as sharp as before. It may not cut my finger even i press as hard. It is so call "dull", or it is normal? How to use painter sand paper to sand the bit? Ty.
Sounds like the bit is already dull and needs to be checked out and maybe serviced.
First, you will find lots of people willing to take time to help you figure things out at a general woodworking forum like sawmillcreek.org.
Second, depending on how you are using the bit - feed rate, material removal, wood species, etc. you could easily ruin a bit that fast.
Third, please don't sandpaper your bit to try to sharpen it.
Then, which brand of bits is the best where i don't need to care the wood material, feed rate etc.
Is Whiteside durable than makita bits? I already try to send the bit using wood sandpaper but fail to sharpen it.. ;). What is the best technique of sharpening a bit especially flush bit that i use for jointing and planing?
Can you post a picture of your bit?
