Please be aware that Whiteside have 7 different large raised panel pattern profiles and 2 of these are called ‘straight’ – the 6000A has a radius fillet on the reveal width and the 6000B is bevelled.
The Whiteside 6000 series features 3 wings and a cutting diameter of 85.73mm (3-3/8"). The Whiteside 5900 series features 2 wings and a cutting diameter of 82.55mm (3-1/4"). Both the 5900 and 6000 series are engineered and designed with 12.7mm (1/2”) shanks and recommended RPM at 11000 to 12000.
Employing the proven good routing technique of making the cut in more than one pass will extend the life of the cutting edge and will produce more consistent edge finishing. This technique should be applied whenever practicable.
The Whiteside large raised panel router bits are bearing guided and should only be used with table mounted routers.

All Whiteside’s cutting tips are hand brazed, precision ground and made from American industrial grade micro grain tungsten carbide.
