    Default Birdsmouth router bit

    Bought in a fit of Huberis or insanity. The eight sided. In the Lee Valley catalog. If you can use it it’s yours in CONUS. PM me. Priority to drive ups. Should have listened to Dirty Harry. Mans got to know his limitations.

    Why!? I've got the LV bit and have to say it's rather pleasant to use compared to the table saw. Works a treat on tapered or ellipsoid spars. What's CONUS?

    I’ve always just used the table saw.

    Me too, but if the saw is inaccurate a router bit can true things up over a router table.

    Very generous, and if it is not already spoken for I could put it to use.

    Used one to build my Coquina mainmast. LV sells several with different angles. Depends on how many sides you want.

    Canoeyawl, pm me an address. Built an Arch Davis Sanddollar but use it as a rowboat, never needed spars. Turns out I’m more duck carver than boatbuilder.
