Exceptional results using 3hp router with custom router sled setup. Able to take 1/8" cuts at full width when sharp. Surface finish is better than I ever thought possible with such a large router bit. Very well balanced! I expected my main guide bearing to heat up with this monster and it runs cooler than when using my smaller bits and the cut quality proves it. I've removed around a 1000 cubic inches of Walnut and finally started to notice some dulling, twice the life I expected. Exceptional bit! and worth 3 times the purchase price, you won't be disappointed.
