Has anyone tried these router bits for radiusing fretboards? Didn't know about these until someone mentioned them on another discussion.

Photos and/or links are the best like Wayfinder says, but this is what you get with a !/2" radius bit. I use 1/4" on front and backs of headstocks. These bits have a bearing on them that only allows them to cut a specified amount. You can band saw or use a belt sander with an aggressive cut belt (like 50 or 60 grit) to cut taper on back of neck up to head. That bearing is a follower so you have to have a smooth edge for it to ride on. If it hits a bump,it duplicates a bump on the neck. P.S. This makes sense to me, but the inside if my head is deranged. If you are not clear ask again.

Bama, I am talking fretboard radius not headstock.

What i've seen of them Doggly,i think you will need a 1/2" router,and as there's no guide bearing,a router table or jig and take a pass from each side,pretty simple,but i'd think easier to do on thicker stock prior to ripping to fretboard thickness
