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.

Nice

Good bits. The small ones are delicate and can break but they are pretty tough. In a compact router they cut like mad. They aren't cheap but you get what you pay for.

You have to get these

If you plan to do ANY inlay work - you have to get these - First time user - purchased with the precision router base - A perfect inlay - Nice sharp edges. I could not have cut something so nice with a razor. This item is a must

Just what I needed!!

These router bits deliver a very crisp edge, and a very smooth bottom. Used with the stewmac router base, careful work will produce great results. The only down side is that the 1/32 inch size is very fragile, if you need that size it's a good idea to get more than one.
