Roman Ogee Query

Post by BigC »

It has become increasingly aware to me that a Roman Ogee bit (along with some other conventional bits) would be of some benefit for my hobbyist router.
Rather than doing it separately as pieces may be small
Can I use them? and how does one go about setting one up for tooling and XYZ positioning.
Maybe the same effect can be achieved by different means without a definitive ogee bit

You can create a form tool for the Ogee bit and carve away.
You will find how to do that in this video.

The form tool part starts a little past the half way point in the video.
