I just bought a Freud Drawer Lock bit (the straight version, not the miter version). Right out of the package using for the first time I had a lot of tear out all along the vertical cut in Baltic Birch ply. The next piece I fed very slowly and it reduced the tear out but didnít eliminate it. Very disappointed with this bit. The cut with the BB flat against the router table was fine.
The max RPM for my bit (as per the package) is 16,000 and I have my router set to it. So not a speed issue.
