I’ve only used upcut flush trim, adn the ones I’ve have now are all Whiteside. I think what Jesse mentioned can happen (the veneer being pulled up) bit I’ve not had that happen first hand. I do get a fuzz on top of the cut that a downcut bit would eliminate; but so does a light sanding. As for Whiteside, my personal opinion is that they are among the best bits on the market today and I’ll typically look at theirs first when i need a new one. That said, they are also very expensive, sometimes the comparable Freud bits can be had for a lot less….and they are also very good bits.
