Edge forming router bits are most often used to cut a decorative edge into a material. The variety of edge forming profiles are practically unlimited, but some of the most common include:
Round over bits- Used to cut a rounded edge of a given radius.
Ogee bits- The term "ogee" refers to an "S" shaped profile. Ogee bits are available in a number of configurations; the Roman ogee bit pictured here is one of the most common
Edge beading bits- Used to cut a 1/4 or 1/2 half circle profile called a "bead" into an edge or corner
Cove router bits - used to cut a concave 1/4 circle into a material
Many edge forming bits include a pilot bearing. In most cases, the bits are used for final decoration of a project where edges are already established and can serve as the guide for the bit.
