Infinity Cutting Tools has just expanded their dado and planer router bit options by one, with the new Mega Dado & Planer Bit (rightmost bit in top photo). It has a massive 2-in. cutting diameter and 1-in. cutter height, which should make this bit handy to have in your collection for cutting tenons and flattening slabs or other boards that are too wide for your jointer and planer.
This big bit with a 1/2-in. shank features four carbide cutting edges, arranged in pairs of opposing shear angles that Infinity calls a 2+2 shear angle geometry. The configuration will help remove large amounts of material with the cleanest possible results.
