The Burgess Edge is a patented, matched pair of router bits that enables the user to edgeband plywood in a unique and superior edgebanding process. The Plywood bit excavates the inner plies on the edge of the plywood; its two bearings follow the surface veneer. The Insert Bit shapes a natural wood insert of the same species as the plywood veneer; its bearing follows the wood edge. The resulting edgeband resembles a jointed board in appearance and durability.
The Burgess Edge system is the only edgebanding system that employs the use of bearings to index the edge of both the plywood the natural wood insert.
|• The user does not have to handle large awkward pieces of plywood on the router table. The plywood is stationary on the bench and you move the router.
• If your plywood is warped, the base of the router naturally follows the warp and forcing the plywood flat on the router table is unnecessary.
• The bearings on the plywood bit follow the veneer on the plywood and therefore allow the edgebanding of curves and nonlinear shapes effortlessly.
| Inexpensive compared to alternatives like stationary edge banding machines
||• Setup time is shortened compared to a router table. The depth of the cut is determined: you only need to adjust the width of the cut depending on the plywood you are using.
• The bearings on both the infill and plywood bit index the material being shaped ensuring mistake free operation
