Actually worth the extra

I was using a 1/4" single flute bit before, but this is necessary if you make more than 2 guitars. Cuts very nice and clean, and no need to silicone the excess and all that mess. First use was on solid indian rosewood and it cut like butta'!

Great router bit

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased the Hot Rod router bit in conjunction with a Hot Rod for my first full build. It couldn't have been any easier to route the truss rod slot. The rod fits perfectly without any rattle or unnecessary play. Measure multiple times and cut in multiple passes and you'll be doing this in your sleep.

Exact cut

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This bit cuts to the exact width needed to fit a Stew-Mac Hot Rod into a guitar neck. I was able to use this bit on my router table. Set up and execution was easy as pie. Make sure your fence set up is right and do the cut in multiple passes.
