Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I want to make lincoln logs. Can you recommend the correct router bit for the edges. Using 1/4" shank.
I have the answer to your question... there is a lincoln log bit in Rock http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=5713&filter=22597&pn=22597 on this page it doesnt quite look like the right bit.. but in the catalog it shows a picture of lincoln logs, next to this bit... if you use the right size stock (wood) it will work .. like I said.. " in the catalog it shows lincoln logs stacked up using this bit) Page 32...

I haven't seen a lincoln log in a long time, but I'd say something in the neighborhood of 3/8" round over bit would do it. It's going to depend on the size of stock you round off. Take off 1/2 or a little less than 1/2 the width of your square "blanks", and use that number as the radius of the roundover bit. If you want not a full 1/4 of a circle profile, use a little bit larger bit and don't raise it all the way out of the base to cut.
By the way, I'd recommend you use a router table to run these pieces, or you're not going to have much left to rest on for the final pass. With a router table, you can leave a square bit on each end that you don't route, (and cut off later), that guides the piece against the table and fence.
Much safer IMHO.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!
