Box Router Bits

In the event  you wish to use the exact bits I did, below are the listings  , Ballew Saw and Tool were the only ones  I found to have the small multi form in stock , but please feel free to look for subsitutes or cheaper, I just  put out what I used as I already had the bits,

base molding and top molding profile

# 3340 , it’s a miniature of the bigger multi form , now we just use the bottom bead and cove , not the whole bit, so its a bead a little step up and the cove,

for the feet we used a 1/2 radius round over bit and  a bullnose   # 1414  http://www.ballewsawandtool.com/shop/form-tools/whiteside-round-nose-core-box-form-tool-2.html

for the raised panel we used  a 6000F    ( with a 7/8 bearing , bought seperate)http://www.ballewsawandtool.com/index.php?keyword=6000f&Search=Search&Itemid=1&option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse

with a 7/8 od bearing which has to be bought separately, it is #   B28 http://www.ballewsawandtool.com/shop/accessories/whiteside-ball-bearings-2.html

for the top inner molding ( raised panel )  we used a miniature set of rail and style cutters , but we could also do it with a 1/4 radius round over and  a 1/8 wing cutter  , the top edge as well as the bottom molding are 5/8 thick,  you could also use a regular rail and stile set up and have the top be 3/4 thick,  in which case you would not need the 7/8 bearing above , here are the miniature rail and stile  I used, but since it is mitered I only  used the stile cutter, for the bead and the groove   here is the one I used  # 5740  http://www.ballewsawandtool.com/shop/cabinet-making/whiteside-miniature-stile-rail-bit-sets-2.html

Now I realize this is alot of $ , so look at the bits and see what you have to improvise or substitute  as you desire, but I wanted to get this out here ASAP  …

If you find the same profiles in other manufactures or better pricing , please feel free to post in comments  below, !!!

    This is a small multi-form bit I found a little cheaper. Is there any reason it wouldn’t work?

    Eagle America has the small Multi Profile bit also.

  3. Jk, that will work, if its the small one, just be sure, VW , yes I saw the one on Eagle, but its out of stock, so I searched for in stock items, as many are doing these for Christmas, and we are slamming to get it done as quick as possible , eagle said dec 22 as I recall and it was more expensive,

    I didn’t realize they were out of stock. I purchased one a couple of weeks ago. So if anyone in the NY area are in a pinch and need one, they are more than welcome to use mine.

      I believe that Eagle America also carries the miniture rail and stile bits. Got mine from them when I built the Hancock clock. They work quite well.
