Bearings for router cutters

  Bearing guides for routing bits  

Bearing guides on router cutters are considered a consumable and, therefore, are likely to need to be replaced occasionally. When a bearing wears down it will not perform to its optimum which will negatively impact any guided cuts you want to make. Bearings should be replaced as soon as they begin to wear to prevent any damage occurring to the router, the cutter, or the workpiece.

What bearing sizes are available for router bits?

Bearings are usually categorised according to the diameter of its bore, its centre hole, as this needs to be the correct size to fit specific cutters. The most common bore sizes are ½", ¼", and ⅛", for imperial, and, 8mm and 12mm for metric sizes. Bearings with other sizes of bore are usually categorised separately and include 3/8", 3/16", 3/32", 10mm, and 15mm.
