I am a sucker for any new tool or device that comes on the market. I love tools. When I saw this router bit advertised on Instagram, I just had to have one. It is probably one of the most disappointing purchases I have ever made. My first discovery was that it comes with no documentation whatsoever. It was bubble wrapped in a plastic envelope with a Chinese mailing label. Period. No company name, no instructions, nothing. It didn’t tell you how far to put the rail guide or at what depth it was to work at. After some experimenting I found it only worked correctly on one thickness of boards. If the board was thinner or thicker it was impossible to get a matching joint. Even though this eliminated it from being used as I had wanted, I went and bought a couple of boards to practice on. I set up my guides to ensure the boards would be fed straight. By the third cut I was getting a lot of resistance. By the 4th cut the blade was shot and just burned the wood. Even though I hade the board clamped to the guide it started kicking back and ruined the cut. Rather than risk loosing an eye or finger I gave up. Don’t waste your money.
