Does not do beading work as is
Received the 34-124 Quadra-cut round over bit and it does indeed have 4 blades which does great work if all you do is round overs, but it does not work for beading operations. The 34-124 Quadra round over bit cannot do beading work as is. Per Freud's website for the 34-124 router bit "For beading work, equip the bits with a Freud 62-102 bearing and 62-311 step washer" 34-124 has a 1/4" post while both the 62-102 bearing and the 62-311 step washer have a 3/16" inside dia. which obviously will not fit the 34-124's 1/4" post, thus the 34-124 Quadra-cut round over bit is not able to perform beading work. I sent an email to Freud stating this and that their website information is incorrect. Will update comment if I hear anything back from them.
Cuts smoothly as advertised
Gives a smooth cut requiring little or no sanding compared to standard 2-flute bits.
