    Comments about Freud 04-096 Double Flute Straight Router Bit 1/4" SH 1/16"D 1/4"CL :

    I used this super small bit to "route" a 7/64 x 4" groove in UHMW with multiple passes to achieve the desired dimension. I first did the same with multiple (soft)wood blanks to insure my set up was correct. I did all of this slowly. There was no obvious departure from the stated cut of (1/16), but I have neither the equipment, inclication or need to verify. It would seem a gradual radius to the cutting diameter would be a better design, but perhaps at this size it is not practical - the Whiteside bit looks the same.

    Comments about Freud 04-096 Double Flute Straight Router Bit 1/4" SH 1/16"D 1/4"CL :

    The design of having such a strong transition in diameter is, in my opinion, very poor. I tried to use this bit in an edge trimmer to create a groove along the edge of a curved piece and it broke, immediately.
