    Inexpensive bevel tool

    This video popped up on one of my Facebook groups for CNC plasma cutting.



    It is for an inexpensive bevel tool.

    I found a similar tool on Amazon for an even cheaper price at only $62 so just ordered one.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FX8741G...HNDBTX0J85QS9S

    I have not received the tool yet, so can't vouch for it. I have spent more money on dumber stuff so don't feel bad about giving it a shot.

    It looks pretty handy, probably ok for light to medium work.

    That is what a lot of us do on a regular basis. I would not expect this to hold up to extended work or heavy work that some of the other folks on here do.

    I just bought one for my own toolbox. It may not hold up for the rest of my life, but at the price I really don't care. There are a lot of times when something like that tool could make a huge difference in some of the stuff I do.
    Thanks a lot for taking the time to post that video. I have never seen a tool just like that one.

    I LIKE THAT TOOL. It beats doing a setup to bevel anything on the mill. It would cut considerable time off of anything that doesn't have to be absolutely centered, and at a precision depth.

    It would be great if they made one like that but was electric, like an angle grinder....(I know, they call them a grinding disk...). An electric bevel tool would at least make for a more uniform angle.

    If they had a bit with replaceable carbide inserts and then the bit fit into a trim router that should probably work light duty jobs.

    Something like this might work.

    Well, they do. Been around for awhile, too.




    The problem with the one in the OP is that it's small, therefore all the components are going to be small. Higher wear, greater noise, etc. Of course, the lower price point will have people buying them in droves, too, so it's a win for the company. Most likely, the folks buying them aren't going to use them nearly as much as they think and won't actually wear them out. Though, the #1 comment I'm seeing is that the customers don't really care if they wear them out or they break after a few months because they're so cheap they can just get another one. They almost don't need replaceable cutters since folks are so happy to just buy a whole new widget!

    Thanks for the video. I could put that to work.

    Check the link provided. There are larger and electric ones on that page.

    Vaughn, Yeah! That Metabo beveling/chamfer tool (the small one) is what I had in mind. Thanks for posting the video.

    OUCH!! I just checked the price of one of them. 5/8" capacity at 45* was over $2700 at MSC.....too rich for my blood!

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    I work mainly in aluminum so I've been using wood cutting carbide bits in a router since the '70's to get bevels like those shown in the pneumatic driven steel cutter.

    But the idea is the same, the functionality is the same. 6061 (Aaron the Tig god) uses one (for aluminum) mounted in his drill press table to bevel parts by moving the part not the router.

    Another post here shows a router using a bulb bit to create a U shaped butt joint prep for aluminum TIG in a pipe (vessel) that had to hold 800PSI.

    Of course its easier in aluminum since its so soft by comparison to steel.

    Thanks for posting video and showing this tool.

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    I paid a bit more for a quality tool. It functions well..Amazon price was super cheap, and a much better value. (IMO)

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    I received my small beveler in the mail today. It is indeed small. I will try it out later this weekend and report how it performs.

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    This little beveler works pretty well.
    The material making up the body feels much more robust than the typical Harbor Freight air tools.
    It is very compact and light.

    Here are some bevels on the outside of some 3/8" plate as well as inside some curves from tabs I cut in the plate. I can see that being handy for when you might want to make a bevel like that and a grinder will not fit.

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    Very nice, Pat. I especially like where you let that bevel fade out on the inside curve. Very elegant.

    How do the cutting edges look now that they're broken in? Any chips or other degradation? Are they a standard carbide insert you can buy anywhere?

    Thanks.
    The carbide inserts look good so far.
    They are standard inserts and available on Amazon

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    And of course they are 6 sided (each triangle is flipped once you go around) so, should last a good bit before you have to even think about buying more....

    This tool uses two inserts. These inserts are one sided but triangular shaped so only three cutting edges per insert. That should be plenty of edges for a while .

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    I don't think you're looking at it right

    You dull an edge, take the screw out of the center, rotate the triangle to a new edge (so 3 cutting edges) THEN,,, you flip the triangle Over and have another 3!

    German-made BDS heavy duty plate chamfering machine I bought a few weeks ago (not inexpensive). Takes separate carbide inserts (shown in package.

    Re: Inexpensive bevel tool

    That BDS is ten times the price and I am sure it is worth it.
    I dont mind spending good money on tools I know I will use. I bought the Ellis 1800 for that reason.
    If it turns out I use the beveler more than I thought, I may step up to something more respectable
