    I want to use my router in a router sled to plane/thickness boards. I've read that a "bowl and tray" or "dish" router bit is the most appropriate for this application. Axminister has one but it's out of stock. Anyone else know where I can get one that looks like this? If not, I guess I'll order it from the US. I hate it when postage exceeds the cost of the item I'm ordering though!

    My router is a Bosch POF 1200 AW. Power is 1200 W in, 650 W out. Will it be okay with this 1 1/4" bit?

    A POF1200 is a 1/4in router, B-A

    The OP might like to take a look at these water channel groove cutters, dish panel mould cutters or coved and upstand cutters. Not the cheapest, but good trade quality (unlike some Chinese carp) and Wealden hold most thinks in stock for next delivery if ordered before 3pm

    I don't think its necessary to sacrifice the side rails. Keep them out and do a climb cut around the edge first.
