Flush trim bits have a bearing mounted at the tip. These bits are ideal for laminate, pattern or template work. This is the preferred method for use in a router table as you would have a clear view of the template with the workpiece on the table and the template on top. Adjust the bit height so the bearing runs along the template’s edge. This bit can also be used with a handheld router in cases where you may be flush trimming a table or counter flush with the supporting structure which acts as the template.
