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.

How to stop breaking router bits

A customer asked me how to avoid breaking tiny router bits. I answer this question from time to time on the phone, and it makes a good Trade Secrets topic. I talked to Dan Erlewine and Dan made us this video. Check it out!

Details

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.

These bits perform exactly as advertised. A very clean cut and impressive for routing inlays on fingerboards.

I purchased the set not knowing what to expect. The bits are high quality, and amazingly clean-cutting for small inlay bits. I use one of the smaller bits way more than the others and have been impressed with how long it has stayed sharp for the amount of cutting I have done. Normal care for tiny tools is required. You will not be disappointed!

Exellent!

If you're inlaying into an expensive piece of wood, then this is a small price to pay for such a clean cut. I was very impressed with the clean cut it made in Spruce when inlaying narrow purfling in Rosettes.

This bit worked very good for cutting the purfling inlay channel. So much better than using a knife.
