I know at least some of us here, myself included, have experimented some with the lock miter router bit with varying degrees of success. My personal experience has been it works great as long as you can run with the grain but cross grain cutting has been a pretty dismal experience, especially with plywood. I noticed this bit set in my latest Infinity Tool catalog and was wondering if anyone has tried it or had any thoughts about it... other than being kinda spendy which already occurred to me. Might be worth it though if it works as advertised. :blink:

I would think setup would be just as critical as the lock miter.

It's either dead on, or it isn't. :yes:
Hi Scott - setup really isn't my issue, tearout on plywood is, especially trying to go cross grain on the surface laminate. Not sure this one would be a whole lot better although I do think the little lock finger contributes to the problem. I noticed in the picture they weren't going cross grain.:smile:
