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.

Downcut Bits

Fabulous product for fine detail work, saddle slotting and inlay. Super sharp and as advertised, no fuzzy edges.

Can't beat 'em

These are really fast and clean cutting. I just love how you can really make some nice precision cuts. Great product.

Love these bits

These bits changed how I make inlays. Absolutely awesome. They're also great for mini pilot holes for truss rod cover screws.

3/32 downcut bit works great!

I used the bit in a popular mini mill machine to cut a slot in a newly fabricated bridge for an acoustic. The speed was lower than what your usual router or Dremel tool produces, yet it worked great and produced a clean slot. Tony Maddi

Excellent cutters

I have a few of these cutters in various sizes and would not be without them, great for those important little jobs. Get a couple though because if it breaks, as they do from time to time, nothing will do the job quite like it!

Expensive, but worth it!

The sticker shock of these bits might frighten people off, but they are the highest quality bits I have yet found. Used carefully, they will easily last longer than anything else I've tried, and stay sharp seemingly forever, leaving no fuzzy edges, ever.
