Should be in your shop.

I have installed a number of Hot Rod truss rods using a 1/4 inch router bit. It will work but this bit is high quality and the truss rod fits much, much, better.

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

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.
