Editor's Notes

April 17, 2019:

When used with a router, chamfer bits work wonders on easing sharp edges, to make them safer and more attractive. It’s hard to go wrong with the Yonico 13508, which are built for accuracy, and they offer strong blades that will stand the test of time. Or, look to the CMT 5-Piece, which come in a handy, compartmentalized case and feature five popular angles used in polygon construction.

A chamfering technique is also used when you’re drilling to countersink bolts or screws. This allows them to sit flush with or below the surface. The affordable Ginode External set featured here provides much bang for your buck, as it provides 11 pieces in all, including a deburring tool, drill bits, and countersinking pieces that incorporate handy cross-holes for strong drilling action.

No matter which you ultimately select, be sure it provides the functionality and range of sizes you require. When taken care of, a sturdy set can last for many years. For safety’s sake, always follow proper practices during woodworking, including wearing protective clothing and eyewear.
