Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

The best for inlay work and saddle slotting! Solid carbide lasts far longer than steel, and reverse spiral flutes cut downward for cleaner, "no fuzz" edges in routed cavities.

To use our 1/8"-shank bits in your laminate trimmer's 1/4" collet, see our #5246 Adapter Collet.

Length 1-1/2" (38.10mm)
Shank diameter 1/8" (3.18mm)

Use the larger bits for removing wood in the middle of your inlay work, and save the fine bits for the fine details. The fine detail bits are fragile, for routing intricate details only.

My dream bits

So far I have just tried one of the small bits and it worked really nice. Tonight I will try a bigger one. GOOD product.

Cuts the mustard... and more.

I got in the 1/32 bit in just as I was using a Dremel bit and switched to the one from Stew Mac - the old bit is now retired. I am using this for really tiny inlay work. Now I wish they would make a 1/64. Cuts nicely into hardwoods.

A size for every inlay string

I'm a furniture maker and have been using these inlay bits for several years. They do a great job cutting the grooves for string inlay. With all the sizes offered I can always find the exact width bit to match my stringing.

Inlay bits

These bits handle thier business even at full depth. I recommend starting shallow though:)

Lots of other uses.

I have loved these bits for many years and have lately found a new use for the 1/16" bit. I have been doing some piece work repairing chairs for a caning shop. Nothing works better to get the old cane out of the slot in the chair than the 1/16" bit. I can accurately cut a deep groove in the old cane. This makes it easy to free what's left of the cane with a 3/16" chisel. By the way, I like the new packaging a lot.

Clean Cutting

I have used these in wenge so far and I am very happy with the clean cuts. They are pricey but in my opinion worth the extra money
