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.

Exact cut

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.

Perfect

Hot rod truss rods fit perfect when using this bit. Thanks Stewmac.

Worked good, use correctly.

This blade worked fine and cut my solid rosewood neck great... except that I tried to run it through the router table the wrong way. I had a fake maple skunk stripe on the back, and to keep consistent with which edge was against the fence, I ran it backwards. Don't recommend that. Otherwise, great.

Flawless router bit for the job!

Perfect bit for the job. Two passes and I had my channel cut perfectly for the Hot Rod, and it sits extremely well in it. Like everyone has said, this bit is INCREDIBLY sharp. Be careful when removing the plastic over the tip of it. Looking forward to using this on future projects!

HIgh Quality

There are really only two kinds of tools, quality ones and cheapo ones. These are quality and last as long as any long lasting bits I've used. No bits last forever. If I had to guess, I'd guess you could use this 50 times before you really had to get another...

Perfect for the job

Cuts a clean slot. Cutting a truss rod slot is not "rocket science", but with this bit there are no worries about fit with the Hot Rod Truss Rods.

Good Quality

I use this for routing the truss rod slot and for cutting the edges of my bridge to the correct thickness.

just right!

I bought this bit to help ensure a good install in my first guitar build. I was terrified of something going wrong, however this bit made it a flawless install. Thank you stewmac!
