Erbauer Pro Flush Trim Bit Â¼" Shank 12.7 x 25.4mm
Very Light duty router bit
I have owned this router bit for a few months now and I would recommend it if you are only going to trim laminates, softwoods or very thin pieces of hardwood. I tried to trim 20mm Maple and bit wasnt interested. It just burned a hole and started to jump about.
Its a shame because I had good success routing into non hardwoods. If you are only going to use this in a wee laminate trimming handheld router then you will probably be fine but in a decent sized router it still wasnt able to perform as well as a Freud bit in thicker hardwoods.
Despite this, it has stayed relatively sharp.

flush cutting router bit
paid extra for a quality router bit with guide bearing as i was feed up with the cheaper cutters falling apart after little use (flush bearings kept disintegrating).
Worth paying for the quality.

Terrible. This bit does not like end grain. Tore my work to pieces and I had to start again. Might be OK for a straight end grain cut, but I wouldn't bank on it. I was trying to to use it to edge the head of a rocking horse I had made out of 20 mm pine. It was mounted in a router table and a 6 mm MDF template was used for the shape. I would suggest spending a bit more and buying a decent cutter.

Used it for 2 days edging 6mm ply. Just keeps going. No clogging. Kept its edge. Great value.
