WeekendMiniaturist Posted May 24, 2020 Share Posted May 24, 2020 I'm cutting out Queen Anne Legs. My router bit is: https://freudtools.com/products/04-096 The problem is it is on 1/4" length of the 1/16" and I need just a little more clearance...can I put this in my taig lathe and give myself 1/8" more clearance on the length? Has any altered a commercial router bit? I have limited experience in sharpening and have made my own profile for 1/8" square tool bits for my taig lathe. Obviously the risk is that I could break the bit, and I've already broke a whiteside 5/16" length bit this weekend... I was a little too aggressive in my plunge rate and chips were too big- resulting in heat + no clearance - broken bit. Thanks - Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
