Custom made for ROUTERCUTTER.CO.UK by Whiteside. These bits are ground to a sharp point that is 1mm wide and procures the space required for glueing mitre (miter) fold joints. What is a mitre (miter) fold joint..? Popular with boards that are faced on both sides (particularly melamine boards) where the laminate will bend 90 degrees without tearing. A cut is made but the board is not fully severed, leaving on face completely unscathed by the cut. Glue is applied to the cut and the flat board now folded along the cut joint to 90 degrees and clamped. The 1mm spacing is important as this allows just enough of a void for the glued joint and the mitre to be set and clamped at 90 degrees.
