The stile and panel profile router bits are designed to give the illusion of raised panel door construction in MDF and solid panel doors. The profiles can be used individually to produce a simple raised panel effect in one pass or the stile profile and panel profile bits can be used together in combination to produce an authentic raised panel reveal; many different combinations are possible. Designed for production routing on solid door machines and CNC routers, the addition of a bearing to the shank will allow the operator to cut a pattern by following an edge guide (template). The guide can be simply four strips of timber clamped around the perimeter of the door. The top strip may be curved for an arched pattern. Follow the guide and rout both profiles. There's no need to move the guide for the second cut. A larger bearing on the panel bit takes care of the offset. Use bearing B16 for the stile bits and bearing B24 for the panel bits. Secure the bearings to the shank with LC-1/2 lock collar (see accessories). When making the second cut, match the depth setting of the first cut to obtain a pattern with a flat bottom or vary the depth to add an extra distinctive ‘step’ on the bottom of the reveal. Complete the door by adding a door edge pattern around the outside edge.
Suitable for CNC applications, table mounted routers and hand-held routing.
