Router bit for trimming laminite counter tops?


Hi Everyone, What is the best bit to trip the top of the laminate counter top? I tried a flush and bevel and they both messed up the edge piece. I think my depth was too deep with the bevel bit.
Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Either one will work, I use masking tape on the edge and make sure the cutter depth is not deep enough to cut the face.

Don't need any...you have already answered your own problem.

Don't try to cut it perfectly. Even the pros leave a very slight bit of material (just enough tofeel with your finger nail) and finish it off with a few light strokes of a flat file.
