Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

About This Item

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.

Spiral Downcut Carbide Bit

(Customer's Reviews)


I do a lot of inlay and rosette work and these bits just the ticket. Even the smaller bits like the 1/16" bits are very strong and they stay sharp.

super clean

I purchased 1/16 and 1/8 bits. They are great for guitar inlay or boxes. Very clean cut, no residue. They are as accurate as your hands and eyes can muster!

Sharp but stock up on them.

I use the 1/8 and 3/32 when I fill and reroute saddle slots. The carbide cuts clean and sharp on hard woods like Ebony and Rosewood. I can get around 5 perfect saddle slots out of a bit. On the 6th its goes dull and starts to smoke and rip the wood. I am positive on softer woods you will get much more use out of a bit. Four stars only because of the price.

They look expensive, but I tried them anyway and have been very pleased with years of service from them. They stay sharp and work exceptionally-well.

Downcut best for inlays

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have been using these cutters for years now, mainly for sound hole inlay work and it is difficult to imagine a better way of doing it. They last for ages but don't just order one as I have found if you have spares they will eventually wear out, if you don't, you'll break one! Highly recommended.

Exceptional product for use when routing spruce and cedar; cuts are very smooth and clean and I've yet to experience any tear out.

Exactly the bit you need. I have two of these and use them in ebony all the time. Very clean cuts and keeps a sharp edge.
