    Router Bit Question

    I have this router bit and I don't know what is is for. It is different than my other bits for making grooves in that it has the groove in the middle of it. Anyone know?

    I would guess that it is a specialized bit for cutting a shallow groove, but not with a plunge router. Either that, or the arming pin from a thermonuclear device.

    It's a little different than most straight bits, but my guess is it's a straight cut bit for making dadoes or any type of shallow groove. Most straight bits have the cutters elevated above the center to help clear chips. Your bit just seems to be elevated more. Nothing shows in the photos, but are there any markings on it?

    Thanks, no markings on it and I don't even know when, where or why I have it. I think Roger must have gotten it correct on his second guess....

    Rob Damon is correct. It is indeed a mortising bit and darned efficient one, too.
