Carbide Downcut Inlay Router Bits

About This Item

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.

I bought this to rout the saddle slot a little deeper for a thinline acoustic pickup. It was the perfect tool.

Exactly as advertised. Each bit is in its own clearly marked small plastic box. Perfect for the bit drawer.

I bought these bits with the precision router base. The system worked well for me. I watched the video first and followed the instructions so I would not break any bits.

Works great for me. Just go slow as they are solid Tungsten Carbide and will break easily, especially the very small ones.

Clean and precise cut

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought this bit and two others, slightly bigger, to do some inlay work on my headstocks and fretboards. The cut is clean with no tear out, I'm very satisfied, I think it's worth the extra cost and custom fees if you order it from outside the USA.

These bits cut very well even in fibrous wood . Don't force these bits, they aren't meant to be muscled through wood. Take your time and you'll find that these work great!!!

Really great bits, but the smallest one broke the second time I used it. Fault with the bit? No, probably my incompetence! Take it nice and handy with the smallie and I'm sure you'll have no problem with it!!
