Router bit advice
I am working on a Bubinga table with a 2" top. Busy joining the top now for width. The top is 2.8m long, and because I couldn't get planks that long I have to join them in the lengthn as well. So I start with two planks in length and two in width, glue them with Festo dominos and let it dry. Then I use a straight edge with a router to cut the edges true, and join one extra set onto it. SO it is one plank per evening in width.
My question is - the router bit I currently use is old and blunt, and although I sharpen it frequently it is time to replace it. So, I am looking for advice on which 1/2 shaft router bit to use. Brand? Upshear, downshear or straight? Do you get bits with 3 cutting surfaces? It must be able to cut more than 2" high.
