Erases Wood at Your Command, Best Bit I've Used

Erases Wood at Your Command, Best Bit I've Used

01-03-2022 09:36 PM by pintodeluxe | 28 comments »

So this is the UDP 9112 Ultimate Flush Trimming Bit, the “P” standing for plunge. There are three versions of this bit that are quite similar, and vary in the bearing placement. This is the only one in the Ultimate Flush Trim series that is a plunge bit. Cutting diameter is 7/8” and cutting length is 1-1/8”. Bit geometry is compression, so you get the advantages of both an upcut and downcut bit, and the result is perfectly crisp cuts top and bottom. I’ve b...

Solid Performer on Cabinet Saws and Hybrids Alike

Solid Performer on Cabinet Saws and Hybrids Alike

I had the opportunity to spin some of the newest blades from Whiteside Plus by Dimar. This blade is the 40 tooth General Purpose Crosscutting blade with a .126” full kerf. Body of the blade is .087” thick. It weighs in at 1 lb, 11oz which is a chunk of steel and carbide! Hook angle is +15 degrees and tooth geometry is ATB. It worked great in my testing with plywood and hardwood ranging from 4/4 up to thick 8/4. A 1.75hp hybrid saw (Laguna Fusion F2) had no trouble with this ...

Astonishing Cut Quality

I have been intrigued by these large diameter spiral flush trimming bits for a while now. I’ve used plenty of spiral bits, both upcut and downcut variety, but wanted to add some large diameter spirals to my arsenal. This is the Whiteside UDC9112 which is compression style spiral bit for clean top and bottom edges. You can get this in a top bearing, bottom bearing or combo bearing like this one. I chose the combo bearing for a wider variety of applications. So how does it work? I...

For Big Chamfers

For Big Chamfers

I’m building a piece where I need case miters on long boards. My table saw is not up to the task (long story) and my efforts with a circular saw weren’t working the way I wanted. I decided to try this big ole 45 degree bit. I marveled when I first tried Whiteside bits—how much better they performed. I decided to try the Whiteside 2306, made to cut chamfers on 3/4” boards. I was a bit nervous with this one because of how big a cut it takes. It is wonderful. The la...

Whiteside Brass Set Up Gauges

Whiteside Brass Set Up Gauges

I’m posting this review because these simple “tools” are perhaps one of the best $10 I’ve spent in a long time. These bars save a lot of time, and frustration. Simple brass bars in imperial increments. Use them for setting up the router, the table saw, mortising machine… anything that needs to be lined up accurately.Per my calipers, they are exactly the dimensions advertised. I used to use my rule or tape measure to get things set up, but I often ran int...

First, pardon the commercial web site photo. I usually prefer to post my own photos, but in this case, the image from the web site shows it best. This router bit is such a great performer. I’ve used two-flute flush trim bits for years with mixed success. If you can manage to run with the grain, they work beautifully. Using a combination bit with bearings on the top and bottom helps with that because you can flip the piece with the template attached and adjust the bit height so th...

I have a good number of router bits for different purposes that I have accumulated over the years…some good and some not so good. I have been looking at this spiral combo bit from Whiteside for a while…hoping it would go on sale…but it never seemed to…so and finally decided to buy it. I have given it a good workout before writing this review because it is not my everyday bit and isn’t cheap at $149. I’ve used it in my router table and also with a handhe...

A new project called for a new router bit. Many members here on LumberJocks hold Whiteside router bits in high regard. This is the second Whiteside router bit I’ve bought this year and am once again completely satisfied with it. I’m currently making a small rustic cabin with log siding as a presentation/display/gift box. The Whiteside oval edge bit # 1476 is a 1/2” shank, 3/4” bead opening and met my requirements. Tonight I put it in the router and fed one board p...

I have recently been doing a lot of pattern routing on my router table. I had started out tracing pieces and cutting them out on the band saw then sanding them on my drum sander, with less than acceptable results (too many inconsistencies in the curves). So, I moved over to making a pattern and cutting close to the line with the band saw then finishing the cut with a pattern bit on the router table. First time I tried this I used a basic, two cutter, top mounted bearing pattern bit and immedi...
