Binding and Rosette Channel Cutter

Binding and rosette channel cutter.Here is Steve Mayo's binding channel cutter. It is built around a Stu Mac Dremel router base. Steve prefers the Black & Decker rotary tool over the Dremel. The base has a screw feed micrometer adjustment. The wooden foot is rounded in a cone shape and in use is kept pressed against the side to keep the cutter perpendicular at all times. With this type of tool, it is essential that the cutter is held tangent to the side to insure a consistent depth cut. With the wooden foot removed, Steve also uses this as a rosette channel cutter by revolving the base around a pin at the center of the sound hole.
