This unique 3-piece router bit set shapes tambours that interlock with a ball-and-socket joint. Unlike ordinary tambours, there is no need for cloth, glue, or wires. The set is also easy to set up and use. The first bit shapes the face of the stock; cutting from each face completes the contour of the ball. Afterward, a second bit is used to shape the socket. A third bit in the set is used to shape the end of the tambour which provides a place to mount a pull for opening the completed tambour. Carbide tipped.
The tambour bit set is patent-pending & makes it easy to create attractive flexible tambours for roll-top desks, breadboxes, appliance garages, or kitchen storage areas. The set comes with a full-color instruction manual for creating a breadbox.
